Over the past week there have been a series of Apple product forecasts for 2013 reported on by MacRumors and AppleInsider based on KGI Securities analyst Minch-Chi Kuo. One even went so far as to predict Apple's use of fingerprint technology for iDevices. Today, China Times out of Taiwan is reportedly claiming to have sources with a few more tid bits of information about what we could see surfacing in 2013. The report claims that two new iPhones will surface in June but that a third one will reportedly surface in Q4 with a 12 mega-pixel camera. The report also continued to bolster the rumor of an Apple based HDTV surprise for Q4 and in total, they foresee Apple launching seven to eight new products throughout the year.
The report also noted that Hon Hai Precision (Foxconn) is estimated to be undertaking 90% of Apple's manufacturing orders in 2013 with Largan having received orders for 8 million camera lenses. Fujikura, Flexium and Zhen Ding will share production for printed circuit boards. At the end of the day, it's a rumor, so take in stride.
