New York, Cupertino-based giant Apple seems confident that its next generation iPhone 7 — which is just a day away from launch — is going to be a huge success as the company has reportedly increased orders of the components needed to manufacture the handset by 10 per cent.

“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 Tuesday.

“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.
