According to a recent report from DigiTimes (and its sources), Foxconn Electronics is said to be producing approximately 150,000 iPhone 5 units per day.
Further, manufactures of the lenses, touch panels, glass, and batteries are also said to be working in “full swing.”
Suppliers in the iPhone 5 supply chain in Taiwan have geared up production recently with volume shipments of the new Apple smartphones to begin soon. Production of iPhone 5s at OEM maker Foxconn Electronics has reportedly reached 150,000 units per day, according to industry sources.
Lens maker Largan Precision, touch panel maker TPK Holding, reinforced glass supplier G-Tech Optoelectronics and battery vendors Simplo and Dynapack are all operating at full swing currently, the sources indicated.
Shipments of iPhone 5 from the supply chain are expected to reach 5-6 million in September and top over 22 million units in the fourth quarter as suppliers will ship less iPhone 4 and CDMA-version iPhones during the final quarter of the year, noted the sources.
Pegatron Technology, another manufacturer, has reportedly received 15% of iPhone 5 orders from Apple, however it may not begin shipping until 2012.
