Rumors claim 68M iPhone 6 initial units, localized haptic feedback

Apple iPhone 5sApple has placed orders for a massive 68 million in initial iPhone 6 units -- roughly twice what it ordered for the iPhone 5, according to Taiwan's Business Weekly. Mass production is slated to begin later this month. It's uncertain, though, if the paper is referring solely to the rumored 4.7-inch iPhone -- the device most commonly tagged with the "iPhone 6" name -- or the supposed 5.5-inch iPhone as well, in which case the 68 million figure would make more sense. In either scenario, Apple is likely keen to avoid the supply shortages that plagued the iPhone 5 and 5s.

A Chinese website, Laoyaoba, is meanwhile claiming that the iPhone 6 will have a unique linear motor for haptic feedback, allowing for subtle vibration patterns or even vibrations in specific sections of the touchscreen. The part will allegedly cost Apple two to three times the 60 cents it's currently spending per vibration motor for the iPhone 5s.
