Reply To Supply Shortage Of iPhone 14 Pro
Chandrasekhar tweeted “I have spoken with Apple and they have said while iPhone14 demand is being met also with India production, the Apple iPhone14 Pro demand has surged and is facing supply constraints which they are addressing”.
This tweet by the Minister has come in response to a complaint of stores going out of stock of iPhone 14 Pro and versions for weeks in the national capital region. Moreover, the private sellers were selling them in the black market.
Chandrasekhar even stated “Private sales are probably “alternate” supply channels”.
The new smartphones iPhone 14 Pro and Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max went on sale on September 16.
TrendForce reported earlier this week that Apple is cutting back production of the Apple iPhone 14 Plus. While it is increasing the output of the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro due to lukewarm demand, according to the market research firm.
However, the share of the more expensive Pro series has increased to 60 per cent of the total output. This increase is from the initially planned 50 per cent. Further, it could increase to 65 per cent in the future, as per the report.
Also, another report of this month suggests that the company is also chopping off production of Apple iPhone 14 Plus within weeks of starting shipments. This step has taken place as Apple re-evaluates demand for the mid-range model. This information reports, citing two people involved in the company’s supply chain.
Apple even told at least one manufacturer in China to immediately halt production of Apple iPhone 14 Plus components.
