Apple Asks Suppliers to Increase Production of Gold iPhone 5s - Rumor

As you probably know, the first two batches of the Apple’s new gold flagship were sold out after a few minutes after the launch of sales.

Apple Inc. has asked its suppliers to increase production of the gold-colored iPhone 5S by an additional one-third after seeing strong demand, people familiar with the situation said. It isn’t clear whether there are currently supply constraints manufacturing the new iPhone.

Apple hasn’t yet confirmed the rumor, anyway, it seems to be plausible.

TechCrunch reports that Apple executives are visiting Russia to talk about Phone sales.

Although Apple has yet to confirm what iPhone handsets it will launch next, the meetings are a sign of how Apple may be preparing to launch new, possibly cheaper devices, to revisit a market that has seen demand for its products, but also one where it has faced challenges working with carriers, the presence of a crazily-priced grey market and, according to eager distributors, short supply issues that do not meet demand.

Analyst forecasts concerning iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S



Gene Munster, a famous analyst, has published a research note concerning his thoughts about the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S.

According to Munster, the iPhone 5C will not boast  Siri and it will replace iPhone 4S and will be selling for $300 off contract.

In terms of the phone itself, we expect the cheaper phone to have a plastic casing, 4" display, and lower end internal specs (processor, camera, memory, etc.) than the 5S/5 line up. Additionally, we believe that Apple may exclude some software features, such as Siri, which we note was not an option on the iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 upon launch.
