Apple Reportedly Shifting Production Toward iPhone 6 Plus

A report on Tuesday says Apple is shifting some of its production capacity over to the iPhone 6 Plus, due to a stronger than expected demand for the larger handset. Digitimes says sources in Apple’s supply chain indicate the “iPhone 6′s shipments in the second half are expected to be 3-4 million units lower than the original expectation.”

But don’t expect to see better availability of the iPhone 6 Plus immediately:

But most component suppliers’ current inventories are not sufficient for extra iPhone 6 Plus orders, and device manufacturers also do not have sufficient production lines for related assembly. Therefore, the retail channel may need to wait a while before seeing a significant increase in iPhone 6 Plus supply, the sources noted.

Since its September 19 launch, the iPhone 6 Plus has shown longer shipping wait times than its smaller sibling. While iPhone 6 orders are showing ship times of 7 to 10 business days, the iPhone 6 Plus consistently shows a ship time of 3-4 weeks.

Apple is scheduled to begin selling the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in China on October 17. Reservations in that country show a close to even split between the two devices.
