Apple expects the iPhone 14 line to outsell the iPhone 13 series

Written by admin
There is no denying that the iPhone 13 series has been a big hit with the line at the top of the smartphone sales charts. And Apple is reportedly expecting even bigger and better things from the upcoming iPhone 14 line. This is from Sina Finance (through MacRumors) who pointed out that the 2022 iPhone line is currently being tested through mass production trial run for next month.
This year Apple will offer the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. Apple is clearly sharpening the lines between Pro and non-Pro models this year, as the former gets the new A16 Bionic chip, while the latter is stuck with last year’s A15 Bionic SoC. The more expensive Pro models have the “lateral i” cutouts at the top of the screen, while the non-Pro variants continue to have the same old notch.
While both the Pro and non-Pro models will come with 6GB of storage, the non-Pro models will come with LPDDR4 RAM while the Pro units will feature the faster LPDDR5 RAM components. And the Pro models will still come with a telephoto camera that gives those phones a trio of rear-facing lenses compared to the two on the back of the non-Pro iPhone 14 models.

Apple is said to have told suppliers that initial sales of the iPhone 14 series will surpass those of the iPhone 13 series. We are currently at the time of year (July-August) when iPhone sales are slowing down due to the impending release of the next iteration of the device which will take place in September. In July, shipments of the iPhone 13 series were 33% higher than the number of iPhone 12 shipments last delivered at the same time a year ago, which could be a sign that demand for the device continues to rise.

Another report, this one from ETNews, says Samsung Display will ship 145 million medium and small OLED panels in the third quarter of this year. Those shipments will be used on the Samsung Galaxy S22 series and the iPhone 14 series. OLED shipments for Apple’s iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are expected to reach 80 million units.
Samsung originally estimated that it would ship 200 million small and medium OLED panels in the third quarter. However, a company spokesperson said that “shipments of OLED smartphones are slowing down. The shipment reached the mid-100 million thanks to Apple’s iPhone 14 series.”
A tipster recently circulated a tweet urging Apple to unveil the 2022 iPhone series on September 13, 2022, so we can guess that pre-orders will begin on September 16 with a September 23 release date. That would be extremely close to the reveal date of September 14 of last year, the pre-order date of September 17, and the release date of September 24, which included the US and more than 30 other countries.
