It is only 3 months since the iphone11, iPhone 11 pro, and iPhone 11 Pro max has hit the stores, analysts are claiming that apple is cutting its iphone11 range production from 25 -30% as there is rumors of apple launching 5G iphone in 1st quarter of 2020.
As per the report from 9tomac, Rosenblatt securities has released a new investor note detailing their predictions for the 2020 iphone as well as its impact on the existing iPhone 11
Analyst Jun Zhang claims that apple is preparing to cut production of the iPhone11 Pro and iPhone11 Pro Max by upto to 25% over the next 2 quarters. Its predicted that, in Total, iPhone 11, iphone11Pro , and iPhone11 pro Max production will decrease as much as 60% quarter over quarter in March. Zhang attributes this to the speculation that many customers are choosing to wait for the long – Rumored release of a 5G iPhone in 2020.
However, Morgan Stanley analysts contradicts this saying that production levels of the iPhone are predicted to remain same. Analysts are confident on this after meeting with Apple CFO and supply chain partners over the last few weeks.
Rosenblatt also predicts what consumers would expect in iPhone 2020 lineup. Its predicted apple will release six new iPhones next year to meet the needs of those who want to upgrade to 5G.
The line might look like the following:
- iPhone 12 4G
- iPhone 12 Pro 4G
- iPhone 12 pro 5G
- iPhone 12 pro plus 4G
- iPhone 12 pro plus 5G
- iPhone 12 pro Max 5G
Other the difference in 4G to 5G, the phones would steadily get larger with better cameras. The screen is predicted to be in the range of 5.4 – 6.7 inch as well as a standard dual- cameras in the 4G models up to the triple camera system for the 5G models.
Rosenblatt’s prediction of the 2020 iPhone lineup contradict the prediction of supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s prediction ,where he predicted 5 new iPhones next year ranging from iPhone SE2 to 5G iPhones.
