Apple is reducing the production of the iPhone 14. This is due to low demand, reports IT Home.
The reduction concerns Foxconn, Apple’s largest assembler. The company will close five production lines at once.
It is not clear from IT Home reports how many production lines there are now, nor is it clear whether this has anything to do with the iPhone 14 Plus, a larger version of the iPhone 14.
After the revision of production plans, it is expected that the share of 14 Pro and Pro Max will be 60-65% in the second half of this year. Before the launch, Apple believed that firmware would not take more than 60% of sales. The most popular model right now is the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
