With its 14 series, Apple has discontinued the mini model, instead there is a Plus iPhone in the size of the iPhone 14 Pro Max. “Macrumors” now reported with reference to “digital”that the new model is selling rather disappointingly.
The trend towards the pro continues
Accordingly, sales of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are well behind those of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. However, since the Pro models are quite popular, the iPhone manufacturer will probably sell the same number of iPhones as in the comparable period 2021
The delivery times of the different models in Apple’s German online store indirectly confirm the claims of the sources of “Digitimes”: You currently have to wait almost three weeks until mid-November for an iPhone 14 Pro with 128 GB in black. With the Pro Max in the same configuration, you also had to wait until November 9th to 16th. This applies to almost all colors and memory configurations of the Pro iPhones. The iPhone 14, on the other hand, is available across the board if ordered today or no later than Monday 17 October. If you live in a big city with an Apple Store, you can pick up the device today. The same goes for the Plus model. Our evaluation of the orders in the first two days after the market launch also confirms: the iPhone 14 Pro is particularly popular, the Plus – not really.
According to Macrumors calculations, Apple should produce around 90 million new iPhones in the second half of 2022. The amount could be reduced to 80 million devices if Apple reportedly corrected the orders from manufacturers down a bit.
