This year should see a new iPhone model to replace the iPhone 13 mini that Apple is about to leave, and this time it would be a Max version with a large 6.7-inch screen. However, not everything seems to be going as planned in terms of production.
According to a recent report, Apple’s next Keynote for the iPhone 14 is likely to be held in Cupertino on September 13. While most smartphones were expected to be available shortly after the event, we now know that one of the versions could extend the delivery time.
In a tweet reserved for his Super Followers, renowned analyst Ross Young announces that deliveries of screens for the iPhone 14 Max are seriously lagging behind other models, which could inevitably lead to a postponement of the launch date.
iPhone 14 Max production lags
According to the analyst, who is often very knowledgeable, the supply chain information he has received suggests that Apple’s panel shipments are “significantly behind schedule.” Thereby, the panel supply volume of the iPhone 14 Pro Max is more than three times that of the iPhone 14 Max If vendors fail to pick up the pace, Apple may have to delay the phone’s release this fall. This is not the first time in recent months that Apple has faced major production problems.
Indeed, chaos recently gripped an Apple factory in Shanghai as workers demonstrated and even tried to flee the factory to return home. These protest movements have had a major impact on production speeds and have therefore extended the delivery times of Apple products to consumers. For example, it was necessary for 7-9 weeks to receive a new 14-inch or 16-inch MacBook Pro.
The MacBook Air and Pro with an M2 chip were the new victims of these delays, as it took more than a month after their presentation before they could be ordered. However, we know that Apple makes every effort to ensure that its suppliers provide enough panels for its smartphones. The American giant recently entered into a partnership with China’s BOE, and can always count on Samsung Display and LG Display. In total, Apple is expected to order about 90 million panels for its iPhone 14s this year.
