A new report from a Taiwanese publication DigiTimes claims that Apple will increase iPhone production by 30 percent in the first half of 2022. Its bigger goal is to exceed 300 million iPhone shipments next year.
Citing people familiar with the matter, the report claims that Apple hopes to exceed the challenging goal of delivering 300 million iPhones in 2022. It mentions that at least in the first half of the year, Apple will increase deliveries of the iPhone 13 range by 30 percent.
Of course, the report mentions that year-round performance will get boosted when the iPhone 14 breaks the cover in the fall of 2022.
Earlier this month, Bloomberg reported that Apple is informing its suppliers that they expect less demand for the iPhone and reduce production accordingly. This year, the availability of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro has been a bit bleak due to extremely high demand and the ongoing global chip shortage. Now, Apple reportedly expects demand for the iPhone range to revive in early 2022. The launch of the iPhone 14 could help the Cupertino-based company exceed its production target.
For now, customers in the market for the latest iPhone 13 have to face long waiting times after ordering. Apple’s ability to meet demand for the iPhone next year is heavily dependent on the chip crisis. If the shortage persists or intensifies, we could see a long wait for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 as well.
