The iPhone 13 Pro versions, which were introduced in September of last year, are allegedly in high demand. According to reports, the Pro and Pro Max are selling like hotcakes, and for the same reason, Apple has decided to increase both models’ production levels.
According to a DigiTimes report, the tech giant will increase the production of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max by 10 million units for the second calendar quarter of the year, which runs from April to June.
Due to the COVID-19 closure in China, the Cupertino-based software giant has been experiencing problems with its supply chain. The constraints reportedly affected the production schedule by forcing Foxconn and Pegatron plants to briefly shut down.
Pegatron, an Apple supplier, ceased operations at its plants in Shanghai and Kunshan early this month in accordance with instructions from the Chinese government. The shutdown is anticipated to have an influence on the shipping of all the products made by Pegatron, including the iPhone 13, iPhone SE, and a few other items.
Additionally, Quanta Computer, which produces 75% of all MacBooks worldwide, has also ceased operations, which experts fear would “severely disrupt delivery.” Depending on how long the lockdowns last, the eventual effect on the supply chain may vary.
The COVID-19 restrictions in China have also affected the crucial Foxconn facility. Analysts had expected that if the lockout lasts for a few more weeks, some Apple product shipments may see delays. The number of cases nationwide keeps growing.
Apple just revealed that the iPhone 13 will be locally assembled at the Foxconn facility close to Chennai. In an official statement, Cupertino said, “We are pleased to start building iPhone 13 right here in India for our local customers, with its beautiful design, improved camera systems for amazing photographs and movies, and the incredible performance of the A15 Bionic CPU.”
This does not imply a decrease in the pricing of the iPhone 13 in India. Apple rarely adjusts its worldwide pricing approach for a local market. Notably, despite the fact that the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 were locally built, Apple never officially reduced their prices.
