For those who don’t know: Weeks, sometimes even months, before the new iPhones are actually presented, production is already starting quietly in the background. The iPhone 14 is no different. Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo now claims to have found out about supply bottlenecks at one or the other panel and memory supplier. But at the same time the expert calms down. Despite these difficulties, mass production and thus Apple’s release plans are not in danger (source: Ming-Chi Kuo).
iPhone 14: Apple wants to compensate for delivery bottlenecks
To be specific: LG’s display division is currently the problem child in Apple’s supply chain. But according to Kuo, competitors Samsung Display and BOE can step in and fill the gaps. In other words, what LG cannot currently deliver, the other two Apple partners will take over. In the same message, Kuo also spreads hope for LG, which shouldn’t take long to address and fix the issues.
With iOS 16, the iPhone 14 becomes a walkie talkie:
Ergo: Nothing stands in the way of a presentation and release of the iPhone 14 in September. Despite this small hiccup, Apple has production under control. There was speculation about a presentation of the new Apple cell phone on September 13, 2022. The earliest conceivable release would therefore be September 23rdPre-orders from September 16th are quite conceivable.
Four models are coming from Apple
Four models are expected again. However, there will be no successor to the iPhone 13 mini. In the future, the smallest model will be the standard variant with a 6.1-inch display. For the first time, Apple wants to provide a larger standard version with a 6.7-inch display – called the iPhone 14 Max. The two Pro models, in turn, should be more different this year. For example, only they should receive the new A16 chip. The rest have to be content with the A15.
