Kuo posts the following on the blogging platform, "The iPhone 14 Plus is the replacement for the iPhone 13 mini. However, this new product's pre-order result is significantly lower than expected, meaning Apple's product segmentation strategy for standard models fails this year."
Instead of a Mini model, which was offered with the iPhone 12 and 13 series, Apple unveiled the iPhone 14 Plus this year. Following the underwhelming sales of the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 13 Mini over the previous two years, the company apparently opted to bring back the "Plus" edition. It is currently asserted that Apple's most recent effort to increase iPhone sales is likewise unsuccessful. Famous expert analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the pre-order result for the iPhone 14 Plus is "much lower than projected." Kuo has not disclosed the precise number of pre-orders.
Additionally, he discussed the Apple iPhone 14 (vanilla), asserting that there are still units in stock and that pre-orders are still open. The pre-order performance for the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, according to Kuo, "is worse than the iPhone SE 3 and the iPhone 13 mini (SE 3 and 13 mini both suffering from an order cut in 1H22)". In a few weeks, if demand for the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus doesn't increase following the introduction, Apple may even lower its shipment predictions for November 2022 and beyond.
On the other hand, according to Kuo, there is a healthy demand for the iPhone 14 Pro versions. However, the weak demand for the normal variations could have an effect on its income in 4Q22 or 1Q23. Because Apple has not published a forecast report for investors, readers are cautioned to treat the information with a grain of salt. Depending on reviews and sales in the latter part of this month and early November, demand for the new iPhone 14 and 14 Pro models could increase. Given that the iPhone 13 normal is presently offered with a significant price reduction, many users might also switch to this model.
