It looks like 2014 is going to be a very eventful year for Cupertino based Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:APL). The company, recognised as world’s most valuable company, is geared up for its much awaited iPhone 6, it’s no secret that the iPhone 6 would witness a massive launch as Apple will finally offer a bigger display to challenge the likes of the Galaxy S5 and other flagship Android phones and phablets. In anticipation of huge demand, Apple has reportedly ordered 90 million iPhone 6 units from mobile component maker Foxconn Technology Co. Ltd. (TPE:2354).

Apple iPhone 6

The New Mystery

According to BGR, “Foxconn Electronics is expected to land orders for 90 million units of the iPhone 6 from April in 2014.” This information was shared by a Chinese-language Commercial Times that cited data from Citigroup Global Markets.

There is also a prediction that the launch of the iPhone 6 will send 2014 iPhone shipments surging 24% compared to last year. That would be almost double the 13% YOY growth that iPhone shipments saw in 2013. If this prediction goes right the iPhone 6 order could get a June/July launch date.

iPhone 6: 4.7″ Gorilla Glass

Details about the new iPhone are being closely guarded by Apple. But there are certain common rumors about it. Previously, Apple kept to smaller displays for its iPhone series, compared to most smartphones in the market, the tech giant did try to change this habit of its, Apple’s new flagship device is expected to come with a bigger screen, a 4.7-inch panel with an even denser set of pixels than “traditional” Retina display and cover glass made of sapphire, a material bested only by diamond in terms of toughness. Such a screen could also potentially woo back Android converts who left Apple solely because of the iPhone’s screen size.

There’s also some speculations that Apple will again release two versions of the iPhone, to appeal to different markets, the company is considering a 4.7-inch and a 5.7-inch model to further expand the current line, and not act as replacements for the 5s and 5c. A 5.7-inch model may take the firm well into “phablet” territory, however, the future existence of such a giant iPhone looks shady.

iPhone 6 do have some amazing features, but according to the rumors it is going to use sapphire glass instead of Gorilla glass, which is more expensive and about 1.6 times heavier. It’s environmentally unfriendly too; it takes about 100 times more energy to generate a sapphire crystal that it does glass. The pricing factor may affect the consumers, but as they say pricing has never been a problem for Apple, as most of its customers are from élite society.

Will This Lead To Over Stocking?

In Q4 2013, Apple shipped 51 million iPhones, which exceeded the market forecast and the company showed a great deal of profits, this positive results would have motivated Apple to increase its production and supply. Though it is a positive move, it all depends when the handset is released though, if it makes its way into pockets by July it will have half a year to sell those 90 million. Then again if it doesn’t come until September, then it will have to sell 90 million units in three months.

But here we are talking about just not any company, it is the Apple, the inventor, the trend setter. so now it all depends on what it pulls out of the invention bag.
