It appears that Apple is cutting off iPhone 14 production. Yesterday, Apple announced that there may be a delay in shipments of some of its iPhone 14 models after the Covid-19 outbreak at its Foxconn factory in China.
According to a recent report by Bloomberg, Apple has now reduced production of iPhone 4 smartphones by about 3 million units.
Apple previously had a goal of 90 million units of new iPhones by the end of the year, and that now appears to have fallen to 87 million.
The reduction in production appears to be related to the iPhone 14 units and not the Pro models, and it appears that the demand for these phones is still high.
Pro models are the ones that have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak in China because these are the phones that are made at the Foxconn factory where the outbreak occurred. You can see what Apple said about this in the statement below.
We continue to see strong demand for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. However, we now expect iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro shipments to be lower than we previously expected and customers will experience longer wait times to receive their new products.
We work closely with our suppliers to return to normal production levels while ensuring the health and safety of every worker.
