Apple’s plan to cover key parts shortages for 5G iPhone 12 series could impact the iPad Air (2020)
Acquire shares from Apple iPad Air (2020) to manufacture iPhone 12 series units to suit the demand
Apple will bring the components reserved for the iPad Air and use it for the iPhone 12 series if required.
One source familiar with Apple’s plans said that the use of dedicated components for its new tablet would “… affect about 2 million units of total iPad production compared to the previous production plan for this year.” In other words, due to the design of the iPad Air (2020) components for the iPhone 12 models, the manufacturer will produce less than 2 million tablets.
Another source says that Apple will produce nearly 10 million units of the iPhone 11 and the budget-priced iPhone SE (2020). According to the source, “Orders for older models are better than expected.” Thanks to the global epidemic, Apple has had to hold meetings using video conferencing, and should worry about whether its suppliers will remain open during the worst epidemic of the beginning of the year. What makes it even more difficult for Apple is the US-China trade war. Some Apple products were cut from import duties after being exported from China to other states, and Apple was able to avoid imposing tariffs on the iPhone.
For the third quarter, Apple looked at Samsung, Huawei and Xiaomi to become the world’s fourth largest phone maker. But there is a simple reason for this and it is associated with the coronary virus. COVID-19 Apple delayed the launch of the iPhone 12 series, as usual, from September to November and November. As a result, the release of the new 2020 iPhone will be pushed to the fourth quarter, replacing the traditional third-quarter release.
