Supply chain news came out that Apple had started mass production of the new iPhone this year. Under the premise of stocking in advance, this year's new iPhone may also be announced early. It is possible that the new machine will be unveiled in July and August.


In Tencent.com, a report from “Dangdang Digital” from the media quoted news from the Taiwanese supply chain, pointing out that in order to avoid repeating the mistakes of last year’s postponement of listing iPhone X (one of the reasons is the low yield of iPhone X), Apple’s The assembly of the new iPhone has already started in advance. Supply chain news pointed out that this year's assembly of three new iPhones, 5.8-inch, 6.5-inch models with OLED screens will be handed over to Foxconn; and 6.1-inch models with LCD screens will be delivered to Wistron. Supply chain will start mass production at the end of June, so it is estimated that Apple will be the fastest to announce the new iPhone in the middle of July or the slowest in early August.


For this, since Apple selected the new iPhone in the third quarter (autumn) of the year, not only because of the need to prepare new product stocks, but also with Apple's new iPhone has always been the fourth quarter of Europe and the United States to lock the shopping season (from Thanksgiving to Christmas Festival period) The market is concerned. Therefore, it is too early to tell whether the new iPhone may be published sooner than if the supply chain began to stock early. Because the supply chain began to mass-produce and stock up, it may be just a new measure that Apple has taken to avoid the recurrence of the postponement of the iPhone X last year. It may also be to prepare more 6.1 brand new iPhones, which does not necessarily represent Apple. Will change the previous examples in advance and publish new iPhones earlier.
