With plans to start total production next month, Apple recently started a trial run of the forthcoming iPhone 14 series. However, some experts think things are not looking well.
The production of the rumored but unproven iPhone 14 Max model is reportedly running behind schedule, and the forthcoming iPhone may not even avoid the material scarcity brought on by rising worldwide prices.
The iPhone 14 will reportedly come in four distinct versions, much as the iPhone 13 did. But Apple looks that there will be two huge versions, the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max, rather than just one, making component security more challenging than in recent years. Ross Young, a renowned authority on display supplies, claims that this requirement is to blame for the production’s delay.
Young stated that although the Pro models are unaffected, the supply of the iPhone 14 Max’s display panel is “still significantly behind until August” in a tweet (accessible only to super followers).
According to Young, the supply levels are more than three times higher than on the standard Max phones, and the screens on those devices seem to be in excellent shape.
Notably, since the normal iPhone 14 Max has a different display than the Pro version, things are moving more slowly. The Pro models employ Apple’s ProMotion, the company’s technology for adjusting refresh rates.
According to this, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will feature an adaptive refresh rate of 120Hz, while the standard Max will continue to have a 60Hz refresh rate. The iPhone 14 Max hasn’t been officially delayed, however.
While developing the next iPhone, Apple has undoubtedly had some highs and lows. To fulfill the deadline, the IT giant had to make some changes.
When Apple opted to employ a more expensive front-facing camera than on prior devices back in May, there were rumors that the firm was having supply chain problems.
According to reports, Apple created the Max and Pro Max to increase worldwide sales in countries like China, where larger-screen smartphones often win the market.
