The manufacture of the iPhone 14 would not be easy, according to the famous analysis Ming-Chi Kuo. He claims that Apple would face significant problems with the quality of materials, which would force it to change supplier. Nothing to worry about when the product will launch soon, however.
Apple would face some problems with the manufacture of its iPhone 14. It is the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known for his always correct predictions and leaks. These problems would concern the camera module.
According to him, it would be a concern of quality control, since some lenses of the rear camera would suffer from cracks and concerns regarding their coating. This would have forced Apple to simply change supplier for a large part of the volumes.
Apple would have transferred ten million orders from Genius, the original supplier, to another (Largan). The goal is to avoid shortages of iPhone 14. The Californian firm is betting heavily on this new smartphone, since Samsung Display has already planned to deliver 80 million screens, more than for the iPhone 13.

iPhone 14 rear lenses may suffer from coating-crack
As a reminder, the iPhone 14 should launch during the month of September, as tradition dictates. For the moment, nothing indicates that the brand will shake up its plans, this concern looking more like a collision than anything else. If the problems with Genius persist, it could simply decide to make Largan its main sensor supplier. For now, Kuo says the problem with the lenses should get a fix. He is talking about one or two months at the most.
In any case, the rumors mention four different models: a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Note the absence of a mini model, which was probably abandoned for lack of success. Indeed, it would only represent 6% of devices sold, a real failure. Consumers just don’t want a smaller display.
For the moment, the new features that have leaked can be counted on the fingers of one hand. We thus evoke a better camera, the disappearance of the notch but also the arrival of an always-on-display mode.
