As far as Apple is concerned, there is no reason not to expect the same volume of demand for the iPhone 11. And with that in mind, it looks like the Cupertino company is already preparing for the huge demand with reports that they are in the process of making 75 million of the September 2019 iPhone 11 range, roughly about the same number that the 2018 models had last year.

For the benefit of those who may not know, the 75 million production order last year covered the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and the iPhone XS Max at the time of its launch. Apparently, Apple is expecting that demand will remain steady in the following months despite trade disputes between the US and China, Bloomberg reported.

And to make sure that all goes accordingly, Foxconn has reportedly increased its workforce in Shenzen and allegedly paying its staff 10-percent more for this year. This further supports the fact that those numbers mentioned above are realistic even with the trade tensions and rising production costs in the air, Apple Insider reported.

It would also be best to take note that the 75 million covers only the months of September, October, and November. With the numbers covering three iPhone 11 variants, the initial planned production of the units may end up insufficient since a lot of mobile phone consumers are bound to want to get hold of the latest device. A potential concern, however, is the preference of buyers on which device to get.

There is a reason for Apple loyalists to look forward to the iPhone 11. As mentioned in a previous post, among the features the next iPhone variant will have include an A13 chipset codenamed "Cebu". The new chip has plenty going for it such as being part of the iOS smartphone’s new logic board that is capable of enhancing a number of important functions. This includes powering the new triple-camera technology which will is said to be having the “Smart Frame” function.

Other features to look forward to including leap haptics which will replace the 3D Touch. However, all new iPhone 11 variants will have the same screen type as the older models. The iPhone XR2 will still have an LCD screen while the higher models will retain the old OLED panels.
