iPad mini and Apple TV allegedly in full production
Analyst Peter Misek has stated Apple‘s rumored iPad mini and “iTV” are already being assembled.
He also stated that even though July is a historically flat month, Foxconn’s revenues were up 5% from June, leading him to believe the iPad mini is responsible. Taiwanese sales data from July and information from other sources showed that Apple has increased iPad mini orders from 18 million units to 25 million for the September quarter, and more than 30 million units for the December quarter.
Peter Misek also believes that Apple’s rumored iTV is in “full production” and could be released before the end of the year. “Recent data out of Sharp, Hon Hai and other specialty chemical and TV component suppliers support this,” he wrote, according to Forbes, adding that manufacturer JDSU recently revealed that it had a new non-gaming “living room” based customer for its gesture control modules.
