iPhone » iPhone 14 production with problems: Apple is shifting orders
Apple’s iPhone production is currently struggling with some impairments. Analysts report that Apple still has the situation largely under control. Nevertheless, longer delivery times can be expected in autumn, at least for some configurations.
The mass production of the iPhone 14 has now started and is facing some difficulties. That was hinted at earlier in the month when the Asian supply chain said Apple may be forced to order up to 10% fewer iPhones than originally planned, Apfelpage.de reported. Apple is actually struggling with impairments in iPhone 14 production: Some manufacturers are not able to produce the agreed production quantities, explained the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
However, this deficit can be compensated for by other manufacturers. There are no problems with Samsung as far as the supply of memory components is concerned in the third quarter. Samsung is a well-known memory supplier and always delivers impeccable quality.
Problems with some pavers
Apple also purchases memory from Micron and SK Hynix, the other two major memory manufacturers around the world that share a market with few players. Micron started production later than planned and the South Koreans encountered quality problems, as a result both suppliers will only be able to deliver in the fourth quarter.
The panels for the iPhone 14 lineup are supplied by Samsung Display, LG Display and BOE, with the latter manufacturer having had significant problems in the past, Apfelpage.de reported. The Chinese are now delivering a much smaller contingent than originally planned, but everything seems to be fine with these panels.
The iPhone 14 is said to be launched in four versions and will appear in the fall. There will probably not be an iPhone 14 Mini.
