According to a report in DigiTimes, Apple expects to sell over 100 million 5G iPhones in 2020.
Earlier reports said Apple was expecting to sell 80 million 5G iPhones, but DigiTimes quotes sources within the Taiwanese supply line who say Apple expects to ship 100 million. Of course, as AppleInsider highlights, DigiTimes’ track record for accurately predicting Apple’s hardware moves is decidedly mixed.
AppleInsider also points out that Apple has not yet confirmed whether the 2020 iPhone will even have 5G, although there have been multiple rumors and peripheral data points to indicate that it likely will.
If the rumors are true and the 2020 iPhone does include 5G, it will likely be one of the biggest upgrades of any iPhone model in years. 5G promises to be such a transformative, revolutionary step in wireless technology that customers will no doubt want to experience it on their favorite iOS device.
