According tomedia reports, Foxconn has hired enough workers to meet “specific needs”. That could mean Foxconn has largely recovered and is preparing to mass-produce the iPhone 12. The report notes that normally the new iPhone will be released in September, while mass production will peak in July. Foxconn’s production capacity was restored by about 50% in February-March, and it may take a while to fully recover.
Last week, a number ofmedia outlets reported that the iPhone 12, which will be released this fall, includes four options and supports 5G networks. The impact is uncertain as to whether the iPhone 12 will expand.
Outbreak damages Apple’s upstream supply chain
In fact, apple has resumed production of its low-cost new iPhone , officially known as the iPhone 9 , according to the industry chain’ latest statement , after it had been suspended after an outbreak and has now eased production , so they are pushing the project back on the project .
Industry chain sources said that the iPhone 9 re-run, the project is relatively smooth, but although Foxconn and other factories in China are restoring capacity, but the outbreak affected Apple’s upstream supply chain, resulting in some parts used in the iPhone 9 face shortages, Apple is trying to work with partners, Will face more parts production to move to China.
As things stand, the outbreak has brought production to a standstill in South Korea, Japan, the United States, Germany, countries and other countries, and Apple’s global industrial chain has been hit hard, leaving some of the key components used to make iPhones out of supply and factories unable to produce more machines.
LG Innotek has long bagged most of the high-end camera module orders in the iPhone series. As a result, Apple also buys chips from ST’s plant in Italy. The current outbreak has left these factories locked in a state of shutdown.
Global supply chain constraints make it difficult for Apple to solve supply problems in the short term, not to mention that many countries around the world now have strict controls on the logistics and transportation of South Korea’s alternative shipping, and it is difficult to remove the entry and exit lines of people and materials in the short term.
“On the supplier side, the iPhone is manufactured all over the world, and the key components are from the United States, as well as from China,” Cook said in an interview. We have reopened our factories in China, which can operate under more open conditions. These plants are currently in the process of climbing back to normal. “
5G iPhone accelerates May trial
It is reported that the iPhone 12 mass production is expected to start in May, when Apple and Foxconn will work together to promote mass production, but when large-scale mass production, still need Apple to evaluate the entire industrial chain before the final decision. Unlike in previous years, this year has been extremely important for Apple, which is trying to get the iPhone to support a 5G network to get the fruit powder to change.
This year’s iPhone 12 series will include three sizes of four, including a 5.4-inch OLED iPhone (rear dual), a 6.1-inch OLED iPhone (rear dual) and a 6.1-inch OLED, according to a report by Guo Mingxuan, an internationalanalyst at Tianfeng. The iPhone (rear three-camera plus ToF) and the 6.7-inch OLED iPhone (rear three-camera plus ToF), while all new iPhone 12 wide-angle lenses are equipped with 6P upgrades to 7P, of which 5.4-inch OLED iPhone, 6.1-inch OLED iPhone and 6.1-inch OLED The wide-angle camera for the iPhone (rear three-camera plus ToF) features a 1/2.6″ large-bottom and 7P lens, while the 6.7-inch OLED iPhone (rear three-camera plus ToF) wide-angle camera supports the Sensor shift and features a 1/1.9″ large-bottom and 7P lens.
Mr. Guo also noted in the report that Apple is unlikely to pass on the increase in 5G iPhone costs to consumers because of the lackof global economic environment this year, meaning that new machines may not rise in price or be in line with last year’s, and that Apple hopes to lower the price of new iPhones and iPhones. 12, to allow this year’s overall mobile phone transfer volume to break through the 200 million mark again.
In addition, the iOS 14 code contains information about the new iPhone codenamed “d5x,” which could be the new 2020 iPhone, because the iPhone 11 is codenamed “d4x.” Only two of the new models come with ToF sensors, andmedia speculation is that it should be the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The iPhone 12 Pro’s cameras may include ToF 3D sensors, wide-angle lenses, ultra-wide-angle lenses and telephoto lenses. The ToF sensor will give the new machine new augmented reality. Apple is understood to be developing a new augmented reality app for iOS 14 that will allow users to get more information about the world around them through AR.
