Apple's iPhone 14 sales fall short of expectations

Because this year's standard iPhone 14 is not a big upgrade compared to last year, it neither uses the latest A16 processor nor does it support functions such as high brush and smart island, so users are not interested in this phone. Obviously, there is not much interest, and the market performance is far less than the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

Last month Foxconn’s Shenzhen and Zhengzhou factories just entered the mass production period of the iPhone 14 series, which is the peak production season. However, according to some Foxconn employees, Foxconn has dismantled many production lines. According to incomplete statistics, there are at least five workshops that have dismantled or will dismantle production lines in Zhengzhou Foxconn. As for the models produced by these product lines, when referring to the products in the workshop, most of the workers mentioned the code "27", and "27" in Zhengzhou Foxconn refers to the iPhone 14.

Earlier, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said on social platforms that Apple has asked Hon Hai (Foxconn) to switch the production line of the iPhone 14 to the iPhone 14 Pro series, which will help improve Apple's product mix and average iPhone sales in the fourth quarter of this year. price. Later, he also said that after the production line conversion, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max accounted for 60%-65% of the overall iPhone 14 series shipments in 2H22 (previously estimated 55%-60%), and the iPhone 14 Pro Max is the iPhone 14. The most popular model in the 14 series.

Users' indifference to the iPhone 14 can be seen from the supply on the official website and major e-commerce platforms. Currently, all memory and color versions of the iPhone 14 on Apple's official website are in stock, while the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are available. Basically, wait 5-7 weeks. On e-commerce platforms such as Pinduoduo, Tmall, and, the iPhone 14 is also available in stock, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max is hard to find.
