Pegatron seen shipping low-cost iPhone, second-gen iPad mini in Aug.

Suppliers expected to start feeding parts in July

Pegatron has won a contract to assemble a low-cost iPhone with a plastic back, as well as the second-generation iPad mini, and will start shipping both to Apple in August, say supply chain sources in Taiwan. Parts for both products are expected to emerge from suppliers in July. One company, Casetek, has been identified as a chassis supplier, but for which product(s) is unmentioned.

Potentially casting doubt on Digitimes' report is a claim that a next-generation flagship iPhone and a fifth-gen 9.7-inch iPad will only arrive in early 2014, each assembled by Foxconn. Several other reports have pointed to the devices launching this fall. Apple itself has said that iOS 7 will ship in the fall, and historically major iOS releases have always been paired with an equally important iPhone refresh.
