Pegatron seen shipping low-cost iPhone, second-gen iPad mini in Aug.
Pegatron has won a contract to assemble a low-cost iPhone with a plastic back, as well as the second-generation iPad mini, and will start shipping both to Apple in August, say supply chain sources in Taiwan. Parts for both products are <a href="http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20130614PD207.html">expected</a> to emerge from suppliers in July. One company, Casetek, has been identified as a chassis supplier, but for which product(s) is unmentioned.<br /><br />Potentially casting doubt on <em>Digitimes</em>' report is a claim that a next-generation flagship iPhone and a fifth-gen 9.7-inch iPad will only arrive in early 2014, each assembled by Foxconn. Several other reports have pointed to the devices launching this fall. Apple itself has said that <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287744==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/06/12/sir.jony.ive.remakes.ios.with.a.new.design.languag e.features/" rel='nofollow'>iOS 7</a> will ship in the fall, and historically major iOS releases have always been paired with an equally important iPhone refresh.
