iPhone 11: Demand for cheaper model makes Apple cut production of 11 Pro Max
As we know, the high demand for the new iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max has led Apple to make a number of changes to its supply chain. However, it seems that the most expensive model of the family is not following the trend of the others.
That’s because a new report released this week points out that Apple increased parts ordering for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro models by 15 %, but reduced the purchase of components for the 11 Pro Max by 5%.
According to sources working with the company, the iPhone 11 is being a kind of “flagship” of this year’s iPhones. This is because its starting price is inviting to those who have an older model.
In addition to relocating production, Apple is also keeping an eye on the impressive results achieved by the iPhone 11. So the company may end up modifying its plans for 2020 and postponing the transition from the cheapest model to OLED technology.
However, as we know, Apple does not usually comment on this kind of information. Therefore, we warn that everything should still be considered as just another market rumor. However, there are indications that the company is also increasing its ordering of parts for other older models.
According to Taiwan analysts, the Cupertino giant has expanded the purchase of parts for the iPhone 8 and XR, which are now the “cheapest” phones in the line. However, that could change with the release of the future iPhone SE 2 in March 2020. That’s because the device must assume the position of “cheap” Apple.
