The highly anticipated iPhone 15 lineup will be unveiled at an Apple event in the middle of September. The new iPhone series has everyone on the edge of their seats. The iPhone 15 Pro Max, the next model in the line, is rumoured to be an extremely powerful smartphone with features like titanium frame, Thunderbolt port, and periscope camera. According to well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, 35% to 40% of initial shipments will be iPhone 15 Pro Max units. Customer demand for the innovative periscope camera system will cause this.
Supply chain expert Ming-Chi Kuo has released a new research. He claims that iPhone 15 Pro Max orders from Apple’s supply chain are up 10%-20% year over year compared to orders for iPhone 14 Pro Max over the same time frame. The premium iPhone model is expected to account for 35% to 40% of overall lineup shipments following initial purchases, so the hike makes sense.
Reports claim that the periscope camera on the iPhone 16 Pro will help drive sales in 2024. This is because rumours suggest that both high-end versions will include a periscope camera. Kuo even predicts a 70% YoY growth in shipments of iPhone periscope lenses during the second half of 2018. It’s safe to conclude that these figures are a huge success for Largan, the company that supplies the lenses for periscopes. It has been reported that Apple has chosen Largan as its exclusive supplier for periscope lenses. More than 60% of the periscope lenses used by Huawei come from this supplier. In addition, demand for periscope lenses is expected to increase from 15–20 million units in 2023 to around 30 million units the following year.
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 15 Pro Max and another variation in the near future. Despite rumours to the contrary, Kuo predicted the item will arrive on schedule. Whatever the case may be, the rollout is imminent. Okay, I guess we’ll just have to see what happens.
