While Apple is reporting revenue and profit growth, according to analysts at Counterpoint, the third quarter in the smartphone market turned out to be very bad. More specifically, the worst among the third quarters since 2014.

The smartphone market posted its worst third quarter in eight years, but Apple is doing well

The smartphone market as a whole declined by 12% to 301 million devices, and almost all leaders showed a decline in sales. Except all the same Apple.

Apple increased sales from 48 to 48.8 million smartphones. The growth is small, but against the backdrop of a 12% drop in the market as a whole, this is an excellent indicator. The same Samsung showed a decline from 69.3 to 64 million, Xiaomi’s sales fell from 44.4 to 40.5 million, and Oppo (including OnePlus) and Vivo showed a decline from 38.1 to 29.4 and from 33. 7 to 26 million respectively.

Analysts say that Samsung’s performance could have been worse, but the company was saved by excellent pre-orders for new foldable flagships. However, as we can see, the results still showed a fall of 8%.

Earlier, an insider ShrimpApplePro, who leaked live photos of the iPhone 14 long before the announcement, said that the next Apple smartphone will receive an updated case and a back cover in the style of the iPhone 5c. According to him, the iPhone 15 will offer buyers a titanium case. In addition, instead of flat square edges, the smartphone will receive a rounded back panel.

Apple has been using flat surfaces and sharp edges for three years in a row, starting with the iPhone 12. Many manufacturers of Android smartphones have followed suit, but there are people who complain about this shape and claim that it is uncomfortable to hold the smartphone for a long time.

In addition, according to multiple sources, the iPhone 15 will also say goodbye to the Lightning interface and move to USB-C, although some believe that Lightning may remain on lower models. Even if all models get USB-C, only older models will have a fast connector.

Apple in trouble iPhone 14 production could fall by 16

According to analysts at the largest Swiss bank UBS, this year the production of the iPhone 14 may be reduced by an impressive 16 million units. This is facilitated by covid restrictions in China, as well as low demand for entry-level models – the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.

Apple in trouble?  iPhone 14 production could fall by 16 million this year

Initially, analysts believed that the total production of the iPhone 14 this year will be 92 million units, but now it has been reduced to 76 million, which is 20% less than the iPhone 13 was produced last year.

It is important to monitor how the increase in iPhone 14 Pro / Pro Max waiting time affects demand,” UBS analysts wrote. “The speed at which Apple and Hon Hai [Foxconn] can solve problems in Zhengzhou, is the key to sales in the fourth quarter of 2022 and the first quarter of 2023‘, they added.

The iPhone Pro production problems could put further pressure on Apple’s business, analysts say, as the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max offset low demand for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. Ironically, Zhengzhou, where the Foxconn plant that makes the vast majority of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, has been hit hardest by the COVID-19 restrictions. Obviously, such a significant decline in the production of the most popular Apple phones can negatively affect the company’s financial report for the fourth quarter of this year and for the entire year as a whole.
