The iPhone 13 series have been in the news for multiple reasons in recent times. Now, the latest report is on the expected performance of the iPhone 13 when it launches later this year. According to a new analyst report, the iPhone 13 will be strong. Information from Apple’s supply chain shows that the company is preparing for more units than its predecessor.
The Wedbush report shows that supply chain surveys in Asia indicate that the initial stock of iPhone 13 series phones may be around 100 million units. The initial stock of the iPhone 12 series was 80 million units. Over the next few months after release, this number will obviously change. However, Apple is very confident in the sales of the iPhone 13 series. The iPhone 13 sales stem from the further development of 5G technology and the alleviation of the coronavirus pandemic.
Apple had a lot of benefits from the coronavirus pandemic. During this period, people had to do everything remotely – study, and entertainment. The demand for smartphones and other products has increased significantly. In addition, the increase in the number of new vaccination will be more conducive to economic recovery. Therefore, when the iPhone 13 series of mobile phones arrive in the second half of 2021, people will have more disposable funds to buy electronic products.
Millimeter-wave 5G development to help iPhone 13 sales
Furthermore, Wedbush believes that the development of millimeter-wave 5G in many countries and regions will also help the sales of new mobile phones. In addition, the agency predicts that the price of the upcoming iPad Pro will be higher than existing products.
Daniel Ives, an analyst at Wedbush wrote
We believe Apple is still in the middle innings of its biggest product cycle year ever across iMacs, iPads, AirPods, Apple Watch, and of course the iPhone 12 supercycle which is set to be followed by the iPhone 13 unveil this Fall.
Our initial Asia supply chain build checks for iPhone 13 are currently in the ~100 million unit range compared to our initial iPhone 12 reads at 80 million units (pre-COVID) and represents a 25% increase YoY out of the gates. While this number will clearly move around over the coming months, we believe this speaks to an increased confidence with Cook & Co. that this 5G driven product cycle will extend well into 2022 and should also benefit from a post vaccine consumer “reopening environment”.
