- A new report says Apple has warned suppliers that demand for the iPhone 13 is slowing down.
- The company reportedly told component suppliers demand is weakening.
- The report suggests that this is because some consumers have given up trying to get hold of one.
According to Bloomberg:
Apple has reportedly told some component makers that that orders may not materialize despite cutting iPhone 13 production by up to 10 million units previously because of chip shortages. The report states:
Apple has struggled to keep up with iPhone 13 demand since its launch, even diverting some parts and components meant for iPad production to the iPhone to try and keep up. Apple lost out on some $6 billion in Q4 2021 earnings because of supply constraints and warned that number may be even higher in the holiday quarter.
