Apple may produce fewer iPhone 14 than previously planned. It is reported by Bloomberg.
Agency journalist Mark Gurman said that Apple may limit the production of processors for new iPhones. The specialist noted that over the past year and a half, the company has released four processors for Mac – from M1 to M1 Ultra and M2. The author also believes that over the next year, Apple will release a few more chips. In this regard, the journalist noted that the corporation donated the iPhone 14 for Mac computers, which could negatively affect the number of smartphones released.
Gurman said that Apple may limit the release of processors for phones. The author noted that the company is again interested in the release of the Mac, and therefore the supply of the iPhone and Apple Watch may slow down. The material says that the production of smartphones can also be affected by dependence on partner companies and rising costs for the production of new equipment caused by a shortage of semiconductors.
The journalist stressed that, probably, because of this, the base iPhone 14 will come out with an old-generation processor, and only premium gadgets — the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max — will be equipped with the A16 Bionic chip.
