Apple Will Not Boost the Production Of The iPhone 14
Tech company apple is at the moment dropping its plans to ramp up production on iPhone 14 models this very year due to low and dwindling demand as per a report from Bloomberg on Tuesday. The company unveiled its new series of flagship phones in September and then opened up presales for the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Apple Told Suppliers of the iPhone 14 Lineup to Dial Back Its Planned Increases in Manufacturing
Apple reportedly told suppliers of the iPhone 14 lineup to dial back its planned increases in manufacturing on the whole product line for the latter half of this year. Apple instead is aiming to make 90 million units during this time frame, in line with its original forecast but it will be lopping off a production increase that’s already planned of roughly 6 million, Bloomberg reported.
In contrast, demand is more for the expensive iPhone 14 Pro versions than the lower-priced models. And one supplier in question has changed its production course purportedly in order to focus on Pro models.
The New iPhone 14 Smartphones Features Many Upgrades
All of the new iPhone 14 smartphones feature many upgrades such as a camera and also a crash detection feature. The entry-level iPhone 14 and plus models will start at $800 and $900 respectively. The high-end pro and Pro Max models and versions on the other hand come with an A16 bionic chip, Dynamic Island, crash detection features, and also a starting price of $1,000 for the Pro and $1,100 for the Pro Max.
