Apple has a tough job this year, with three iphones in the fall and all the iphone x series, so this is a huge demand for capacity.
In an effort to stamp out the bottleneck of last year’s iphone x production, the Taiwanese industry chain said Apple would run a new iphone in the second quarter to ensure supply after the IPO.
Industry chain sources also said that the three iphone X to be released this year would be a 5.8-inch update, and another two would be a 6.1-inch low-cost iphone x and 6.5-inch iphone x Plus.
In addition, the three new iphone will provide face ID facial recognition features, so in order to ensure the initial 3D sensor module supply stability, Apple will advance the production of the new iphone this year, and last year’s iphone x trial run was only just started at the end of August.
The industry chain also stressed that the 2018 new iphone parts orders did not show significant growth, but upstream and downstream iphone supply chain manufacturers are optimistic about this year’s order situation. If Apple can start offering this year’s new IPhone in the early part of the third quarter, the sales of parts suppliers will grow in the second quarter, though the iphone 8, iphone 8 Plus and iphone x are selling less than expected.
