TOKYO, January 6. /Corr. Alex Sarachev/. The American company Apple will shorten the release of new iPhone models – the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus 30% in the first quarter of the current year (January-March) compared to the original production plan. On Wednesday reported the Japanese business newspaper Nikkei.

According to her, the American company planned to maintain production of the updated models at the level of their predecessors, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
