Apple’s flagship model this year, iPhone 15 Pro Max, is said to have had a difficult delivery, according to the unanimous statements of various analysts. Now supply chain expert Ming-Chi Kuo has spoken up again and claimed to know exactly where the problem was.
Kuo reported the day before with a message that the larger model should not be delayed until October, contrary to the statements of other analysts. Kuo said mass production has begun, as has shipping. But he adds nowIt could be tight when it comes to delivery, since the Pro Max may have been the last to enter production, and therefore doesn’t have as great a lead time as the other three models.
Several components caused problems
According to an analyst at TF International Securities in Taiwan, it has stumbled on several components. In addition to the periscope camera, the display panel, batteries, and titanium frame are said to have caused Apple some headaches.
Image sensor related issues were resolved through an overproduction at the supplier, although minor issues persisted. With the screen, Apple simply miscalculated how many panels the resource came from. A solution has also been found with the major suppliers of the battery and titanium frame.
Homemade button problem
On the other hand, the problem was the homemade device button. It wasn’t until the second quarter when Apple decided to no longer use a solid-state button that only simulates keystrokes. This caused difficulties that delayed the start of mass production. However, it is gratifying that the titanium frame reduces the weight of the Pro models.
Kuo also confirms the possible colors available for this year’s iPhone generation. Pro models should be available in grey, white, black and blue. iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 Plus buyers should be able to purchase the device in black, pink, yellow, blue and green. Apple has invited to an event on September 12, where iPhones are likely to be presented.
