Apple will soon launch a new generation of the iPhone 14 series. Although the smartphone market is facing shrinking due to the global economic downturn, Apple has still increased its stocking volume from the original 90 million units to 95 million units. This time Apple offers four models iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, and the mini model will be replaced by the iPhone 14 Max with a 6.7-inch screen.
According to data shared by DSCC CEO Ross Young and MacRumors, during the period from June to September this year, the panel production share used by the iPhone 14 Pro Max was the highest, accounting for 28% of shipments. The iPhone 14 Pro is slightly lower, accounting for 26% of shipments, which is comparable to the regular 6.1-inch iPhone 14. Surprisingly, the proportion of iPhone 14 Max among the four new models is the lowest, only 19%.
Although the production of the iPhone 14 Max is lower, MacRumors said that the situation will gradually improve over time, and the proportion should be higher. In addition, Apple’s eventual decision to replace the iPhone 14 mini with the iPhone 14 Max has caused the model’s timeline to lag behind the entire iPhone 14 series project. At present, supply chain manufacturers are working overtime to catch up with the progress, which should not affect the supply of the iPhone 14 Max.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max and the iPhone 14 Max have the same screen size, the latter should have a certain cost advantage, and it is rumored that its battery capacity will be larger.
