Apple is just a day away from launching its next generation iPhone 7. Ahead of its launch, there has been a report that Apple has increased orders of the iPhone 7 s parts and components by 10 percent. The report apparently comes from the iPhone supply chain in Taiwan, DigiTimes reported. The timing of the move is interesting as Samsung has just announced the global recall of its flagship premium device Galaxy Note 7 over battery faults, and Apple is hoping to steal a number of its loyal customers. Although the exact reason for the increase in demand remains is still unclear.

“It is also well known that non ‘s’ year variants of iPhone create more excitement and have performed well than ‘s’ variants, which the company also experiences year-on-year,” The Next Web reported. “On the other hand, it is safe to say that it has something to do with the average sales of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus that Apple faced when it launched the devices this time last year,” the report added. Experts have also predicted that Samsung s global recall of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone could be a huge gain for Apple. As Apple prepares to launch its iPhone 7, the timing for this to happen couldn t have been better.
Apple s iPhone sales have not been up to the mark, and with Samsung s setback, this could shoot up iPhone sales. After just two weeks on sale and 35 faulty smartphone batteries reported so far, Samsung on Friday issued a global recall of Note 7 and promised to replace every unit already sold. According to experts, this is bad news especially at a time when Samsung had a momentum going in its favor.
