Apple Looking to Increase iPhone 13 Production by 20% as Demand is Expected to be High
As we get closer to September, the anticipation for Apple’s new line of iPhones gets higher and higher. With demand expected to be soaring, Apple is reportedly increasing the production of its new devices by 20 percent throughout the year.
Apple’s next smartphone, tentatively dubbed the ‘iPhone 13’ is expected to be in high demand. So much so that Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman and Debby Wu have reported that the Cupertino company is increasing the production of its devices. Last year, the output of the iPhone 12 series was roughly 75 million. This year, Apple will be increasing its production by 20 percent up to 90 million.
Aside from noting the increase in production, Bloomberg reiterates the changes and improvements expected in this year’s iPhone. Wu and Gurman are standing firm on their belief that the iPhone 13 will be more of a refinement model or an incremental upgrade. Sizes of the four devices (iPhone 13, Pro, Pro Max, and Mini) will remain the same as the iPhone 12. The devices are codenamed D16, D17, D63, and D64.
Additionally, the report states that at least one model will feature an LTPO display, enabling variable refresh rate. The new devices may also have a smaller notch. Camera improvements will be more focused on video and include upgraded optical zoom. Chip will be based on the A14, will feature a 6-core design. Finally, the iPhone 13 will not include an in-display Touch ID. Although it was reported that Apple did conduct tests for the device.
Apple is expected to officially announce the iPhone 13 in September and begin releasing the devices soon after.
