Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! A new report claims that Apple has placed an initial manufacturing order for 15 million iPhone 5 units and they’re set to start shipping in September, likely alongside the release of iOS 5 and iCloud.
Could the long-rumored Verizon iPhone actually have been something of an underachiever? That seems to be what one report is claiming, with Apple reportedly slashing production orders for the handset by half.
It’s becoming a bit like a B-movie monster that can’t be killed. We speak, of course, of the persistent rumors that a CDMA, Verizon-compatible iPhone is “coming soon.” But now, with only a week to go before the handset launches in the U.S. and a handful of international GSM carriers, a new report claims that a CDMA iPhone 4 is actually in production.
