Since its release, the iPhone has been solely manufactured by Foxconn, but that is about to change with Apple's next-generation iPhone. A well connected KGI Securities analyst named Ming-Chi Kuo has said that Apple will be splitting the manufacturing of its upcoming iPhone 5S between two companies.

Apple will diversify its manufacturing between Foxconn and Pegatron. While Foxconn will still get a bite of the iPhone pie, Pegatron will handle 75% of the FDD-LTE version of the upcoming entry level iPhone, and 55% of legacy hardware.

 

In his research notes, which were picked up by website Apple Insider, Ming-Chi also estimated that Apple will ship 35.8 million iPhone 5S handsets in 2013 and 53.4 million entry-level iPhone devices.
