Millions of iPhone 3GS Still in Production

Apple is known for its significant products, particularly iPhone. The company launched its latest iPhone 4S in October. The most surprising fact is that despite releasing the latest iPhone device, the company is still producing older models of iPhone in large numbers. DigiTimes reports that the Apple is supposed to manufacture about 2 million iPhone 3GS this quarter and reportedly scheduled to make 1.4 to 1.6 million iPhone 3GS units in the first quarter of next year.

Over the past six months, about 3.5 million units were sold, which according to analysts could reach 30 million in this month alone. In addition to Apple, there are some other smartphone makers as well that supposed to produce such quantity of a device that has leaded by two newer models.

At number of occasions, we have come across rumors suggesting the forthcoming ‘Nano’ device from Apple. However, what we have realized up till now that the company’s focus is more on to influence its users with older devices instead of compromising on quality. The older models are produced with less memory to make them affordable for the customers who can’t afford high-spec devices.

One cannot rule out the possibility of a lower-range Nano device sometime in future by Apple. If it happens, it will certainly do well in the still developing markets. However, Apple seems very comfortable with providing its tail of devices as an affordable option to customers who want to enjoy advanced handset with at affordable range.

The one of the major reason of iPhone 3GS popularity is its support for Apple’s latest mobile OS, iOS 5. Some rumors also surfaced in recent times claiming that Apple will discontinue its iPhone 3GS next year. In addition to iPhone 3GS, Apple is also offering iPhone 4 with lower capacity as less expensive option.
