The company is asking for between 85 million to 90 million new iPhone models to be made by its suppliers in 2015, according to the Wall Street Journal.
This is further evidence that if the iPhone were spun off into its own company, it would still beat Google, Microsoft and the rest of Apple in sales. That's clearly not changing any time soon.
How it plans to woo shoppers
At first glance, the iPhone 6S doesn't sound like a remarkably different phone, according to all of the rumors. The outside is supposed to be nearly identical.
The iPhone 6S camera is supposed to take even better photos with a 12-megapixel sensor, up from the 8-megapixel snapper of the current phone.
Touch ID is supposed to be faster, as in the processing power thanks to an upgraded Apple A9 chip and 2GB of RAM tipped for the new phone.
And if pink is your favorite color, there's good news here too. Look for either a pink or rose gold version of the next iPhone, further mimicking the Apple Watch.
