As reported by AppleInsider, investment bank JP Morgan is increasing their expectations around shipments of the iPhone 13 lineup this coming fall. Supply chain analyst William Yang is also changing up his predictions around iPhone 12 shipments, increasing numbers of the iPhone 12 Pro models.
In contrast, Yang cut shipment expectations of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini. The analyst predicts that Apple may stop manufacturing the device completely in the second quarter of 2021 due to its lackluster demand.
The analyst says that Apple could ship as many as 80 to 90 million units of the iPhone 13 lineup, a notable increase from the 76 million units that were predicted for the iPhone 12 models last year. He also played down rumors of a new iPhone SE in 2021 but said Apple could release one in 2022 based on the design of the iPhone 11.
The iPhone 13 lineup is expected to feature a smaller notch, improved battery life, and a major upgrade to the Ultra Wide camera.
