Hold on to your hat, butt and whatever else you hold dear as more rumors of expected iPhone 14 production levels are rolling in.
People who are following these rumors with bated breath… need to seriously rethink their priorities.
It’s not healthy, Megan! Also, living on a diet of mainly Funyuns is not healthy either. We’ve talked about this. Just because you keep saying the whole bottom level of the food pyramid is Funyuns doesn’t make it true. Also, no one uses the Food Pyramid anymore.
Hey. If the whole bottom level used to be Funyuns, that would explain why no one uses it anymore. Could Megan be right?
Anyway, it had been a little over a month since DigiTimes reported a 10 percent “discount” in iPhone 14 orders. Yes, you read that right, not the currently shipped iPhone 13, but the iPhone 14, which will be released in a month or so.
A few more of these rumors and we might as well go without the space-time continuum altogether. I mean, what’s the point if effect no longer follows cause?
Makes the Macalope so mad. After all this time watching Star Trek so that he could fully understand the ins and outs of quantum mechanics.
If you remember (or even if you don’t know), these “austerity cuts” were probably caused not by a lack of demand, but by supply problems. Apple ‘cut’ orders, you see, because suppliers couldn’t make the phones fast enough because of… what? Lazy millennials, probably? They get blamed for everything, so let’s just say that was it.
And because vendors couldn’t make phones fast enough, Apple gave up. “We’d rather not sell them than have you wait for them!” the company was heard to say. Although luckily it made this horny observer wait weeks to get an iPhone 4 back. When people still said things like ‘back in the day’.
No, this rumor made no sense.
Anyway, forget all that “cut” nonsense! Because…
Apple reportedly raises iPhone 14 shipment forecast to 95 million units
Can you sue Apple rumors for whiplash? Ask for a mythical beast.
Apple has informed suppliers that it now expects the iPhone 14 series to sell better than previously thought, increasing the number of devices it will manufacture and ship to 95 million from 90 million, according to the Taiwan Economic Times.
This rumor doesn’t seem to take into account the previous one, as the July rumor said Apple would “cut” production from 90 million units to 82 million. Now Apple believes it will sell 95 million.
Geez, get your story straight, Apple! Good gracious, who’s running the show over there?!
Apple is obviously not responsible for these figures. The Macalope has not approached Apple for a response to this rumor and will not update this post when and if it hears anything, because it wouldn’t even if it had.
Since Apple won’t release an iPhone 14 mini, the only person not buying a new phone this year is the Macalope. Instead, he’ll quietly upgrade to an iPhone 13 mini that he’ll stick with for the rest of his life.
Or not. The Macalope is still hopeful that Apple will once again ship a small phone in the future to accommodate any procrastination. And on that day, the Taiwan Economic Times can report that Apple will increase shipments by 0.000011111 percent.
