Apple’s next-generation iPhone has already started production in China, according to a report.

Digitimes has published information that reveals manufacturing plant Pegatron has begun production of the new iPhone at its factory site in Shanghai, China, citing ‘industry sources’ in Taiwan.

Meanwhile, an earlier post on website MacTrast claims that Apple supplier Foxconn’s Zhengzhou site is assembling the new version iPhone albeit on a small scale, with only five units of the handset  produced during a recent night shift, with more than 100 workers rostered. Mactrast also reported that the yet-to-be released iPhone is reportedly in the “trial production stage.”

While nothing has been confirmed by Apple, it’s likely the next-gen iPhone will launch in September or October, one year following the release of the 4S model.
