Pegatron and Foxconn won Apple assembly orders
According to various sources, Apple will launch the iPhone 13 series in September and will make relevant improvements based on the iPhone 12 series. According to Wccftech reports, both Pegatron and Foxconn have received orders for the assembly of the iPhone 13 mini. Although the iPhone 12 mini has excellent performance and compact appearance, it seems to be unpopular as expected. Sales data shows that this is the worst-selling one in the iPhone 12 series and even reduced production due to falling demand. However, Apple did not give up this model on the iPhone 13 series. The screen of the iPhone 13 mini will continue to remain at 5.4 inches. However, the “mini” suffix model is likely to be canceled when the iPhone 14 series comes next year.
In addition to sales and simplified product lines, perhaps the future cancellation of the “mini” suffix model may also be related to future iPhone design changes, such as changes in screen size and panel, and the need for larger camera modules or larger batteries. According to Twitter user @duanrui1205, the camera module of the iPhone 13 series will be larger according to the size of the accessory manufacturer’s protective sleeve. Put the iPhone 12 Pro Max into the leaked iPhone 13 Pro Max protective case, and found that the camera module of the new product maybe 30% to 40% larger. In addition, models with the “Pro” suffix should be equipped with a 120Hz LTPO display.
According to the data of the market statistics agency, the sales volume of the iPhone 12 series is very good, and it has to catch up with the sales records created by the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. According to an investor report by Business Insider, analysts believe that the iPhone 13 series will reverse the recent slowdown in sales of the iPhone 12 series. The iPhone 13 series composed of four new models will eventually surpass the iPhone 12 series in sales.
