Apple introduced a new iPhone model called iPhone 14 Plus with this year's lineup. It replaces the Mini model that we saw during the last couple of years. It is essentially an iPhone 14 but with a bigger 6.7-inch display. It was supposed to attract buyers looking for a big display without the need for splurging on a Pro Max model. However, as things stand now, it seems like there is not much demand for this model.
A new report from The Information claims Apple has decided to cut down on iPhone 14 Plus production due to low demand. It has cited two anonymous sources for the information. The company is said to have reached out to two component suppliers to reduce their production by a whopping 90%. At least one iPhone 14 Plus assembly partner has been told to halt production with immediate effect. Additionally, it has told at least one iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max supplier to increase production.
It goes without saying that Apple is yet to comment officially on these claims. It seems like the Cupertino-based tech giant has realized it would make more sense to produce Pro models more and put non-Pro models on the back seat. This is likely because buyers are finding it more reasonable to spend a little more to get a model that also brings noteworthy changes. The report adds Apple still has plans for an iPhone 15 Plus next year.
The iPhone 14 Plus is powered by the same A15 Bionic chipset that we saw on the iPhone 13 series. The newer A16 Bionic chip is exclusive to Pro models this year. The price difference between iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro is slightly around $100. The latter only brings a more powerful chipset but also has Dynamic Island, improved camera performance, and better battery life.
