A new industry report claims that Apple plans to ramp up production of the iPhone 13 series in the first half of 2022 and have more than 300 million iPhones sold by the end of that year.
Previous conflicting reports have said Apple is warning suppliers that demand for iPhone 13 has slowed, but also that sales are still healthy. Now, a new report says Apple expects to increase production in early 2022 and sell more than 300 million by 2022.
unusual, Digitimes Taiwan does say (in translation) that this estimate is a rumor. However, it also cites unnamed sources who are said to be familiar with Apple’s plans.
Apple no longer releases sales figures for iPhones. However, a projected estimate for total sales in 2021 was that 215 million iPhones would be purchased.
If the goal of 300 million is correct, it could indicate that Apple has high hopes for the “iPhone 14”, which is expected in September 2022.
Note that in general Digitimes has a poor track record for forecasting Apple plans. However, it has a much stronger track record regarding its information resources.
