According to well-known Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Foxconn may lose its status as the exclusive assembler of iPhone 15 Pro smartphones due to production shutdowns and riots, which will lead to big losses for Apple.

Foxconn’s Zhengzhou plant (also known as “iPhone City”), which employed 200,000 people before the riots, is the world’s largest iPhone assembly site. According to the analyst, recent events will lead to the fact that shipments of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max may be 15-20 million lower than expected.

On the back of recent events, Pegatron and Luxshare received about 10% of orders for the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, however, shipments will not begin until the end of December, according to the most optimistic forecasts.

The analyst said that since Apple no longer wants to be in a similar situation, it will continue to expand the list of manufacturing partners, so Foxconn will not be the only manufacturer of the iPhone 15 Pro.

Foxconn, also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., said over the weekend that it will increase to more than $1,800 per month in December and January for permanent employees, including those who joined the company in November.

According to Apple’s official website, the current delivery time for any version of the iPhone 14 Pro is up to 6 weeks.

There is evidence that Samsung does not produce 128 GB UFS 4.0 memory chips. Only Kioxia makes 128GB UFS 4.0 memory, but even those don’t reach the required speeds. Therefore, Samsung decided to use UFS 3.1 flash memory for the lower version.

Samsung is offering a free upgrade for those who pre-order the Galaxy S23 series in many countries. For example, if you order the 128 GB version, you can get the 256 GB version.
