Apple has already started working on iPhone 13 models to avoid the trouble that they had with the iPhone 12. Here are the details of the topic.
Apple has already started working on the new generation iPhone models. The Cupertino-based company plans to make some changes on the design side with the iPhone 13 models. Currently, the absence of any coronavirus cases in China has accelerated Apple’s production line.
Apple faced several challenges in the development and production process of iPhone 12 models in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This led the company to launch the new iPhones in two stages. Trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says this year the company will launch iPhone 13 models regularly.
Apple iPhone 13 models won’t suffer stock problem
Kuo’s investor note states that the mass production schedule for the iPhone 13 will be identical to previous iPhone models before the 12 series. This means we can expect all iPhone 13 models to roll out without delay by September 2021.
As the COVID-19 outbreak has affected the company’s associated factories around the world and even internal production of the device at Apple headquarters, as most employees work from their homes, Apple did not release all new iPhone 12 models at once this year.
While the regular iPhone 12 and 12 Pro were announced and available in October, 12 mini and 12 Pro Max were sold in November.
Kuo also says TSMC has no worries about the lower shipping forecast for the A14 chip produced in Q2 2021 compared to Q1 2021.
The analyst says the drop is “seasonal” and is expected as TSMC will begin to change its production line to develop the new.
Apple claims that although Sony camera sensors used for the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max are experiencing supply problems, 12 Pro sales have remained strong and demand for this year’s Pro models is better than expected.
