Trendforce data shows that demand for the iPhone 14 Pro was far more than Apple had anticipated. According to the report, the company’s original orders to suppliers were for 50% of iPhone 14 models to be one of the two Pro variants, but this number has now been increased to 60% and may even reach 65%.

The business claims that this appears to have been balanced out by significantly reduced demand for the iPhone 14 Plus before going on to discuss the advantages the iPhone 15 Pro has over the base versions.


All available sources indicate a high level of interest in the iPhone 14 series, with the two Pro variants generally in high demand.

According to the most recent survey by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple has ordered Foxconn to enhance iPhone 14 Pro manufacturing by 10%. This data follows a report that said the Pro models were outperforming the standard variants in terms of sales.

The availability of iPhone 14 Pro models at Apple Stores has changed significantly, but iPhone 14 stock is still readily accessible.

The same reports imply that the least popular model in the lineup was the iPhone 14 Plus.

The media stated that demand for Apple’s new iPhone 14 Pro models had outpaced the company’s ability to supply them.

AppleInsider says that UBS investment bank analyst David Vogt used data on iPhone availability in 30 countries to analyze wait times for Apple’s Pro line of devices in a letter to investors.

The waiting times for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max in the US have increased by five to 25 days apiece, the report said.

UBS gathered the data before the current Chinese lockdowns, which might have had an impact on output.

As a result of scared workers being spotted fleeing the Foxconn facility in Zhengzhou city, which manufactures the new iPhone 14 series, last week amid a renewed Covid-19 threat, the Apple supply chain in China encountered its next set of issues.

The plant in the Henan province’s capital employs about 3,000 people.

In the upcoming months, the development can cause Apple’s flagship smartphone manufacturing to slow down.

Famous Apple analyst Ming-chi Kuo wrote on Twitter that Foxconn’s Zhengzhou facility unexpectedly switched to closed-loop production, affecting more than 10% of the world’s iPhone production capacity.
