Reports are appearing suggesting that Apple may be preparing to put the next generation of iPhone into production.

Taiwanese technology publication Digitimes' sources are saying that notebook manufacturer Pegatron Technology has received orders for 15 million units to be ready to ship in September.

The iPhone 5 is believed to feature the iPad 2's A5 processor and a new 8-megapixel camera, an upgrade on the iPhone 4's 5-megapixel number.

The new handset is expected to be revealed at Apple's September press event which is usually reserved for the iPod.
