to report Bloomberg And based on information shared by knowledgeable sources, Apple Apparently, it plans to reduce the production capacity of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus by about 3 million units compared to previous plans.
It was previously said that Apple wants to sell 90 million iPhones. But now it is mentioned in the Bloomberg report that the production capacity of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will be reduced to 87 million iPhone units. Yesterday, Apple confirmed the reduction of iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max production capacity due to the quarantine of the Zhengzhou factory in China.
It was stated in previous reports that iPhone 14 Plus It’s off to a very bad start. According to the latest reports, sales of the regular iPhone 14 have not gone as well as Apple expected, and the company has faced a significant drop in demand in China. Now the company is apparently reducing the iPhone 14 production capacity by around 3 million units.
Reduction in iPhone 14 production capacity
Market sources familiar with Apple’s plans say the company appears to be planning to cut production and sell about 3 million fewer iPhone 14 units than planned.
Apple and its suppliers now plan to make 87 million units or less. This is despite the fact that it was said earlier that Apple wants 90 million devices from this series to the market. One of the possible reasons for this reduction in production capacity is the lower demand for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models.
It remains to be seen how Apple will proceed with its production plan. Is it possible that the decrease in demand as well as the situation of corona outbreak in the Zhengzhou factory in China will lead to a double reduction in production by this company or not?
