Following the conclusion of the iPhone 13 event, a new report claims that Apple plans to order 90 million of its latest phone lineup in 2021 alone. Such a large number may reflect the company’s expectation of high demand.
According to previous reports, Apple asked suppliers to increase iPhone 13 production by 20% over iPhone 12 production
According to a new DigiTimes Research report, Apple will ask upstream suppliers to produce a large number of iPhone 13 units during this time. According to a previous report, Apple asked suppliers to increase production by 20% compared to the iPhone 12 because the company anticipates high demand for the newer models. Foxconn, Apple’s main assembly partner, reportedly hired 200,000 workers in anticipation of the same demand.
The iPhone 13 family will account for 35-45 percent of all iPhones in Q3, according to Wedbush analyst Dan Ives, implying that they will be extremely popular. Overall, Apple could have one of its best years in terms of iPhone shipments, with JP Morgan forecasting 240 million units in 2021. Also, in case you missed it, Apple did not discontinue the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, instead of lowering their prices by $100 to provide consumers with a solid lineup of options.
According to previous reports, the iPhone 12 is still in high demand, so even if Apple does not meet its target for iPhone 13 shipments this year, increased demand for previous-generation models could compensate. With a few months left until the year ends, we’ll see how popular these four new models are, and we’ll have updates for our readers in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
