The other day we told you about a shortage of energy management chips The iPhone 12 series can make it harder Apple to produce enough mobile phones to meet the demand for its first-class 5G phones. Now, Nike Asia reports
That Apple has some backup plans ready when it does not have enough components to make the numbers iPhone 12
Series handset needs it.
Acquire shares from Apple iPad Air (2020) to manufacture iPhone 12 series units to suit the demand
One plan asks Apple to borrow from Peter to pay Paul. What do we mean? It is reported that some of the shares reserved by Apple have been reserved According to two people familiar with the iPad Air (2020) to their new 5G handset. This is a legitimate alternative to Apple, as all four new iPhone models and their new tablet are powered by the same 5nm A14 Bionic chipset. It is currently the most powerful chip found in a smartphone, with 11.8 billion transistors embedded in each integrated circuit. That’s up from 8.5 billion transistors loaded into the Apple 7nm A13 bionic; The higher the transistor density of a chip, the more powerful and energy efficient it is.
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.
Apple has asked its supply chain to produce 20 million units iPhone 11
, iPhone SE
, and iPhone XR
In the fourth quarter of the calendar. That’s more than 25% of the 75 to 80 million 5G iPhone 12 series phones Apple orders for the year. None of the three older iPhone models launched after October will have a charging adapter and a pair of earpods out of the box.
The iPhone 11 continues to sell well, and for that iPhone 11 Pro
And the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which is the end of their production life and they are no longer in production. An executive-level source told Nikki that “the speed for the iPhone 11 is surprisingly strong and will continue to be so, but not for the Pro and Pro Max.” Another said, “It’s time for the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max [to stop production]”If Apple continues to produce two phones, it will affect sales.” iPhone 12 Pro
However, the source said that the slightly lower specifications of the iPhone 11 will be changed enough to avoid that problem and will allow Apple to continue to produce the iPhone 11 without having to revise its latest phones.
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.
