Cupertino giant, Apple launched its new Apple iPhone 14 series in September this year. Already this smartphone has seen an increase in demand following its launch. While the demand following the launch was prodigiously high, it has now reached a point where the demand for the product exceeds the total number of units being produced by the company.

Apple iPhone 14 Pro demands exceed the number of units produced
Investment bank UBS’s analyst, David Vogt has reportedly said that the Pro range smartphone in particular has seen an increase in demand for its sales.
Reports suggest that the waiting time to get this new iPhone 14 series smartphone, especially the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max has been in the range of 5 to 25 days, even in the US.
There is also a report coming out from UBS which claims that the current lockdown on China due to the Zero-COVID Policy which has shut down the world’s biggest iPhone factory has impacted the entire supply chain and production of this smartphone. This is the biggest iPhone manufacturing hub that employs over 3,00,000 workers. Following the pandemic, smartphone production here has been overcast by burgeoning fears.
Regarding the Apple iPhone 14 series production, we have another report coming out from a popular Apple analyst named Ming-Chi Kuo who took the Twitter with this post claiming that this lockdown due to the new policies brought by the Chinese government and also the trade wars between the Beijing and Washington administration is impacting the supply chain and breaking the back of Apple.
For the current situation, the analyst claims that the lockdown of this plant will be affecting more than 10 percent of the total iPhone production on a global scale.
Even after such disruption, Apple has been working towards expanding its manufacturing hubs outside China where India has been a main focus for the Cupertino giant.
It is indeed quite relieving that India has already begun working towards assembling the iPhone 14 series smartphones in India. Recently we covered details of Pegatron and Foxconn, Apple’s leading iPhone manufacturers who started with the assembling of the iPhone 14 series in India.
