Previous models of Apple smartphones may be in short supply due to new company policies. This is reported by the MacRumors edition.
Reporters cite a report by industry media DigiTimes, which predicts a possible decline in shipments of older Apple smartphones. The company has agreed with the main chip supplier TSMC to increase orders for the production of Apple A15 Bionic processors used in the new iPhones and iPads. Agreements to increase production without expanding overall supplies in the face of global shortages were achieved by reducing the production of old chips.
“Apple has slashed orders for chips for older iPhones, while ramping up production of processors for its iPhone 13,” the sources said.
Despite the release of new smartphones, the company still manufactures and sells models of previous generations. In particular, in addition to current devices in the Apple online store, you can find iPhone 12 and 12 mini, iPhone 11 and iPhone SE.
In August, analysts at DigiTimes predicted a rise in the price of Apple smartphones. The rise in phone prices is attributed to a 20 percent increase in chipmaker TSMC’s costs. The rise in price will affect the flagship iPhone 13 series.
