On the way to the iPhone mini, only faster: Apple cuts production of the iPhone 14 Plus less than two weeks after the release of the smartphone

Published

The Cupertino-based company cut production of the iPhone 14 Plus less than two weeks after it hit the market, two people in Apple’s supply chain said.

Apple has ordered at least one manufacturer in China to immediately cease production of iPhone 14 Plus components while the purchasing team reviews demand for the product, which Apple is positioning as a cheaper alternative to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Two suppliers of iPhone 14 Plus components in China are cutting their production by 70% and 90%, respectively.

The iPhone 14 Plus is priced at $900 in the US, which has led some buyers to opt for the more expensive and feature-packed iPhone 14 Pro, which only costs $100 more.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously stated that pre-orders for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus have been very poor and that there is a growing possibility that Apple will cut production orders for the two devices.

DigiTimes reported last week that sales of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus were lower than expected. Bloomberg also reported that Apple has canceled plans to increase total iPhone 14 production to 96 million units from 90 million units in the second half of 2022. Production capacity is shifting to Pro models due to higher demand.

The story of the iPhone 14 Plus is reminiscent of what happened to iPhone mini models that failed to catch on with consumers. In early 2021, Apple ordered several suppliers to stop making parts for the iPhone 12 mini and then assembling the device within the first six months of its release. Apple did release the iPhone 13 mini less than a year later, but discontinued the mini product line with the release of the iPhone 14.

Foxconn simultaneously asked employees to leave “iPhone city” for $1400 and stay for even more rewards

Foxconn simultaneously asked employees to leave iPhone city for 1400

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.

Foxconn’s generosity comes from the company’s desire to restore assembly as quickly as possible after weeks of Covid restrictions, culminating in last week’s riots. The Zhengzhou campus, which has more than 200,000 employees, assembles the vast majority of iPhone Pro models.

As we reported, the company offered each protester about $1,400 to quit and leave the plant. A Reuters source familiar with the situation confirmed that more than 20,000 workers agreed to Foxconn’s offer.

Foxconn simultaneously asked employees to leave

Apple said it is working closely with Foxconn to restore production to its previous pace, and both companies have expressed their commitment to keeping workers safe.

Earlier this month, analysts at Morgan Stanley slashed their estimates for the current-quarter iPhone Pro release by 6 million units. In a worst-case scenario, if extended lockdowns affect assembly in Zhengzhou, Foxconn risks losing up to 36% of iPhone revenue, or 20% of total sales for the quarter.

Previously known insider Ben Geskin posted a video showing clashes between workers and security at the Foxconn plant.

One of my friends just went to our local Apple Store and asked about orders for the iPhone 14. He was told that the supply of smartphones has completely stopped. New orders will take a very long time. The iPhone is good, but I feel most sorry for those people who are locked in the Foxconn factory.
