Apple has apparently ordered 15 million new iPhone 5s smart phone handsets from its Taiwanese suppliers and plans to start shipping in September.Apple orders 15 million iPhone 5s for September launchiPhone 5 rumours have been intensifying for weeks now and, like this latest one, most seem to suggest an Apple launch some time in the next couple of months.

DigiTimes, which is the main source of most of the recent reports, says that Taiwanese manufacturer Pegatron Technology has just taken an order for 15 million iPhone 5s, to begin shipping in September. It attributes the story to “sources from upstream component makers”.

The report also says that the iPhone 5 “does not have any major update from iPhone 4”.

If that’s correct it would suggest that the new phone will be simply a slightly improved iPhone 4, just as the 3GS was a slight improvement on the iPhone 3G, and not a completely overhauled device.

Based on the rumours so far, it’s expected that the new iPhone will contain the same A5 processor that is in the iPad 2 and a better camera, possibly an 8-megapixel sensor rather than the 5-megapixels of the iPhone 4.

The new handset will apparently look similar to the iPhone 4. However, some rumours have suggested that Apple will release two iPhone models this year, including a cheaper version of the handset.

Apple does not comment on rumours and is yet to confirm any events for August or September, though it typically holds an iPod-related event every September.
