The tech industry remained calm this week as most of the big players prepared for their fall events.

Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) highly anticipated iPhone 6 still remains a mystery, but a related rumor made headlines this week.

Not to be outdone, the long-waited iWatch also made the news after AU Optronics (NYSE: AUO) was expected to begin producing smartwatch display panels.

Elsewhere, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) announced a new mobile payment service. The online retail giant also got into a fight with Disney (NYSE: DIS).

Disclosure: At the time of this writing, Louis Bedigian had no position in the equities mentioned in this slideshow.

    Pegatron And Foxconn Divvy Up iPhone 6 Production Orders

    Pegatron Technology was originally thought to produce no more than 30 percent of Apple's 4.7-inch iPhone. If a new report is correct, the company might have a much greater hold on Apple's new smartphone.

    Pegatron Technology will reportedly produce 50 percent of the orders for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. Foxconn -- which is rumored to produce all of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 units -- will handle the remaining 50 percent.

    The timing may not be coincidental. Apple's long-awaited iWatch is expected to ship in the fourth quarter.

    Amazon Stopped Taking Disney DVD/Blu-Ray Pre-Orders

    If you want to pre-order the latest Captain America, you might want to head to the nearest Best Buy.

    Amazon, the world's largest online retailer, has stopped consumers from pre-ordering new Disney (NYSE: DIS) movies. This could inevitably benefit the retailer's competitors, but may not end up hurting either firm involved with the dispute.
