According to Bloomberg, Apple has asked suppliers to prepare parts for 75 million new 5G iPhones. The American corporation ordered the same amount last year. At the same time, the company expects that deliveries of new iPhone models can reach 80 million units this fall.

According to agency sources, Apple has prepared several new products for the current fall. In particular, in October the corporation will release four new iPhone models with different designs and screen sizes. Two models will be flagship, and two more - budget. 

All of them will be equipped with new OLED displays. The budget models will have screens with a diagonal of 5.4 and 6.1 inches (13.7 and 15.5 cm, respectively), and the new iPhone Pro series will have screens with a diagonal of 6.1 and 6.7 inches (15.5 and 17 cm). The latter will be the largest display Apple has ever equipped its smartphones with. 

The devices will be powered by the new A14 processor, and at least one of them will be equipped with a LIDAR camera like the latest iPad Pro.

Apple also intends to release new models of its "smart" watches, updating both the fifth and the budget third series of wearable gadgets. In addition, the company is preparing to release new wireless in-ear headphones, parts of which can be changed, and a new version of its "smart" HomePod speaker, which is expected to be cheaper than the previous model.
