Apples reportedly put in its biggest order yet for new iPhones, says The Wall Street Journal. While numerous reports have said production of Apples next iPhone models is set for August, The Journal now says its going to the largest ever, with somewhere between 70 to 80 million units. That number will be split up between two models, the report claims — a 4.7-inch model, as well as a 5.5-inch model, both of which would come in well above the iPhone 5 and 5S 4-inch display. To put the figures in perspective, The Journal notes that Apple ordered somewhere in the ballpark of 50 to 60 million units for last years iPhone 5S and 5C. Apples next iPhone, which is expected to be called the iPhone 6, is rumored to include a number of new hardware features. The Journals report comes on the eve of when Apple announces its third-quarter earnings, where the iPhone continues to play a key role, historically bringing in more than half of the companys revenues.
