Earlier this month we reported that Apple had adjusted their iPhone order ratio to better help meet the iPhone 6 Plus demand. Today, the supply chain in Taiwan is reporting that Apple has once again adjusted their order ratio again due to higher than expected demand for the iPhone 6 Plus in China.
Once the iPhone went on sale in China on October 17, Apple was able to see that the demand for the iPhone 6 Plus was larger than expected, forcing Apple to once again change their iPhone 6 ratio to boost supply for their first phablet.
Consumers in China are now able to buy the iPhone 6 directly from telecom operators, retail channels or on websites, but they have to wait for a period if they want the iPhone 6 Plus, sources confirm.
As a result, Apple may be forced to shift more production capacity to the 5.5-inch model, said the sources, adding that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus supply ratio is likely to change to 55:45 from the original 70:30.
