Bloomberg reports that Apple doesn’t expect iPhone sales to drop in 2022 despite a slowdown in the smartphone industry. Cupertino-based Apple expects iPhone demand will continue strong and has asked suppliers for 90 million iPhone 14 models. This is equal to the iPhone 13 production during the same period last year.
Apple anticipates that it will release approximately 220 million iPhones by 2022. This is roughly the same production level as in 2021. Bloomberg sources claimed that Apple can weather the decline in smartphone sales because its customers are still willing to pay more for premium devices.
Apple has released approximately 75 million smartphones since 2021. Apple’s 2021 release of new smartphones saw a jump to 90 million as it anticipated high demand for iPhone 13 models. Apple will continue to maintain this number for 2022.
Ming-Chi Kuo (a well-known analyst at Tianfeng) stated earlier that the supply chain for the iPhone 14 line had not been disrupted, and the smartphones will be released as planned.
