Apple just unveiled the eagerly awaited iPhone 14 series, and sales have already started in all countries. In contrast to the cheaper iPhone 14, the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro models appear to be much more in demand.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known expert, tweeted the news. According to him, the Cupertino-based company intends to persuade its suppliers to shift production capacity away from the less expensive iPhone 14 models and toward the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro models. As a result of the latter’s increased demand, it is making the transition, and increasing their production should boost sales in the fourth and final quarter of this year.
As of right now, it appears that Apple has instructed Foxconn to enhance the manufacturing of the iPhone 14 Pro series in order to improve the ASP (Average Selling Price) of its most recent iPhone range. In other words, the analyst anticipates that the higher shipments and sales will cause the ASP of the iPhones to climb by roughly 10% in 2022. For those who were unaware, the company debuted the iPhone 14 series at its Far Out event. The new models offered a number of enhancements over the iPhone 13 generation.
The brand-new iPhone 14 Plus, which replaced the small model in the new series, and the Pro variants also introduced a significant front design modification. The back cameras on these more expensive models also received an upgrade in specifications. Interestingly, given that the Pro models of the iPhone 13 and even the iPhone 12 series did better on the global market, which Apple is also clearly aware of, this revelation isn’t entirely unexpected.
