iPhone 5 production begins in Shanghai
Pegatron has begun production of the iPhone 5, adding to the growing number of reports claiming that iPhone production lines are humming. iPhone 5 production reports are rolling in from Asia with more frequency. This time, a Taipei-based report claims that Pegatron has started making the next iPhone. The Taiwan-based manufacturer has begun production of a new version of the iPhone at its factory in Shanghai, according to Digitimes, citing “industry sources in Taiwan.” This follows a week-earlier report claiming basically the same thing though that report did not specify the manufacturer.
That earlier report did get specific about the phone itself, however, saying the back of the new iPhone has both glass and aluminum. By comparison, the iPhone 4S sports glass coverings on the front and back. The iPhone 5′s most anticipated feature is a larger 4-inch class Retina display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Previous iPhones have had a 3.5-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio. Digitimes also mentioned that Pegatron will be a second production source for the “new version of the iPad.” Foxconn has been the primary manufacturer of Apple’s iPad and is also expected to make the iPhone 5.
