Apple is apparently cutting iPhone 14 production. Yesterday, Apple announced that shipments of some iPhone 14 models may be delayed following the Covid-19 outbreak at a Foxconn factory in China.
According to a recent report from Bloomberg, Apple has now cut production of the iPhone 4 smartphone by about 3 million units.
Apple’s previous goal of launching 90 million new iPhones by the end of this year has apparently dropped to 87 million.
The production cuts are apparently aimed at the iPhone 14 rather than the Pro models, and demand for these phones is clearly still high.
The Pro models are the ones affected by the COVID-19 outbreak in China, as the phones are made at the Foxconn factory where the outbreak is taking place. You can see Apple’s take on this in the statement below.
We continue to see strong demand for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. However, we now expect shipments of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro to be lower than we had previously expected, and customers will experience longer wait times to receive their new products.
We are working closely with our suppliers to restore normal production levels while ensuring the health and safety of every worker.
