Hon Hai/Foxconn is one of the winners of the increased ASP of iPhone 14 series. I estimated iPhone 14 series ASP would increase by about 15% (vs. iPhone 13 series ASP) to $1,000-1,050 (USD) due to two iPhone 14 Pro's price hikes & higher shipment proportion. https://t.co/UgiW0kom4F
In an announcement to suppliers, Apple said it is expecting the iPhone 14 lineup to perform better and ship 95 million devices. As compared with previous expectations, the iPhone maker told suppliers to increase production by 5 percent.
Recent tweets from Kuo suggested that the upcoming mass production of iPhone 14 models will be limited by supply chain issues affecting some iPhone components. In a tweet, Kuo mentioned that some iPhone 14 panel and memory suppliers have been experiencing supply problems, but this shouldn’t affect the production schedule because other suppliers can fill the gap.
