The US-based tech giant Apple launched iPhone 11 series in September this year. The new smartphone is the thirteenth generation. The lower-priced iPhone 11 series include three phones — iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The new line up succeeded iPhone XR. Now, the company appears to have received high demand for new handsets this time and has now asked its suppliers to increase the production of smartphones by around 10%. The suppliers, however, are taking steps cautiously as they feel that the higher level of orders will not continue for an extended period. According to an analyst report, iPhone 11 demand is much better than expected in China and perhaps this could be a possible reason behind the Cupertino-based company’s push to ramp up production. The report added that iPhone 11 Pro demand has also exceeded in the United States. The report predicted that Apple could sell around 185 million iPhone in the upcoming fiscal year.
The new iPhone lineup has received an overwhelming response from consumers worldwide who are looking to upgrade to a multi-camera setup. The company also lowered the starting price for its smartphones by USD 50 this year. Reports suggest that the square camera module of the new iPhones series which was an earlier source of controversy is now appealing to the users and exact reason for increasing demand.
Meanwhile, the analyst report also suggested that Apple may launch four new iPhones in 2020. These smartphones will be 5G-enabled. The new handsets could also feature a rear 3D-sensing system and motion control. Notably, the company has not released any official statement on the likely release of four handsets in 2020. Besides, the company is also expected to launch a slightly affordable iPhone model. This could be the successor of its second-generation iPhone SE model. It could hit the market in the first quarter of 2020. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that iPhone SE 2 could carry a price tag of $400 at the time of launch.
