According to Bloomberg, Apple does not expect iPhone sales to fall in 2022 amid a general slowdown in the smartphone market. The Cupertino-based company expects iPhone demand to continue strong and has asked suppliers to produce 90 million iPhone 14 models, which is the same as the iPhone 13 production in the same period last year.
Apple expects to release about 220 million iPhones in 2022, which is the same level as 2021 production. Bloomberg sources said that Apple could weather the downturn in the smartphone market because Apple’s customer base is still willing to spend money on premium devices.
Until 2021, Apple released about 75 million new smartphones. In 2021, that number increased to 90 million as the company anticipated high demand for iPhone 13 models, and Apple is now sticking to that bar for 2022.
Earlier, Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst at Tianfeng International, said that the current supply chain of the iPhone 14 line of smartphones has not been affected, so the smartphones will be released as scheduled.
In the morning we published a comparison of the screens of the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro.
What will the Pixel 7 and iPhone 14 have in common? New Google will be little different from its predecessor
It seems that the new generation of Pixel smartphones will differ little from the current models. At a minimum, according to recent data, this will affect the younger Pixel 7 model.
According to insider Yogesh Brar, who at one time provided correct data about the Pixel 6, Pixel 7 will not receive any important differences from its predecessor. It will have the same 8 GB of RAM, the same 128 or 256 GB of flash memory, the same based camera with 50 and 12 MP sensors. The front camera will be new, but it’s an 11-megapixel sensor from the Pixel 6 Pro.
SoC Tensor G2 will also be new, but so far all data indicates that the processor part of this platform will be the same as that of the current Tensor, only with slightly increased frequencies. The screen will retain the resolution and frame rate of 90 Hz, but, unexpectedly, will become a little smaller: 6.3 inches versus 6.4 inches. Apparently, Google heard users and journalists who said that there is not much difference in size between the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and both feel large. True, it is not a fact that reducing the screen will lead to a decrease in size.
As for the battery, its capacity will allegedly be 4700 mAh, which is only slightly more than 4614 mAh for the Pixel 6.
As a result, the situation with the Pixel 7 will be similar to the iPhone 14, when there are very few differences from its predecessor, and there are no serious ones at all.
The queue for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max is shrinking. Waiting times for orders are getting shorter
Demand for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max remains strong in the third week after the start of accepting orders, but the waiting time for new smartphones began to gradually decrease.
Worldwide delivery time after ordering the standard version of the iPhone 14 on the official Apple website is still 3 days, as it was originally. The average estimated delivery time for the iPhone 14 Pro worldwide has been reduced from 35 days to 31 days, and the delivery time for the iPhone 14 Pro Max has been reduced from 41 to 39 days.
In major markets such as the US and China, the estimated delivery time after pre-ordering iPhone 14 Pro is still over 30 days, and iPhone 14 Pro Max is over 35 days.
Also confirms that demand for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max was higher than for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max series in the third week of booking, but the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are not as actively ordered as the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini a year earlier.
As previously reported, Chinese consumers bought fewer iPhone 14 series smartphones at the launch of the new lineup than they bought iPhone 13 smartphones in the same period last year. In the first three days after the launch in China, Apple sold 987,000 iPhone 14 smartphones, which 11% less than the iPhone 13 series smartphones sold last year.
In Chinese social networks, reviews of iPhone 14 Pro smartphone users are circulating, who complain about the rapid obsolescence of the appearance of the latest flagship. The matte finish peels off quickly. Apple has already begun production of iPhone 14 smartphones in India – less than three weeks after the presentation.
200 megapixel camera and 180-watt charging in a far from top-end smartphone. Infinix Zero Ultra 5G lit up in the photo
On October 5, Infinix will present its new flagship smartphone, which will stand out even against the background of most first-tier flagships.
The Zero Ultra 5G model will be the first among Infinix devices and the second in the market as a whole to receive a 200-megapixel camera. In the photos you can just see this smartphone.
In terms of its parameters, Zero Ultra 5G will not be able to compete with full-fledged flagships. For example, it will be based on the SoC Dimensity 920, which, although very productive, still belongs only to the middle segment. Also, the device will receive 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of flash memory, a 32-megapixel front camera, and early data also indicate 180-watt charging.
