Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tweets that Apple is having to adjust its iPhone 14 component orders due to an issue with the smartphone’s rear lens.

From his tweet: I have learned that recently some iPhone 14 panel and memory suppliers have experienced supply issues, but it should have a limited impact on the coming mass production of the iPhone 14 because other suppliers can fill the supply gap.

The impact on iPhone 14 shipments can almost be ignored because Largan can fill the supply gap well. The lens coating-crack problem should be addressed within 1-2 months based on experience. But if Genius can’t handle the issue, Largan will continue to receive more orders.

The iPhone 14 line-up is expected to debut in September or October. Among the rumors about the smartphone update:

° The iPhone 14 Pro and ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max will both pack 6GB of RAM and a newer and faster type of memory.

° Some models may cost US$100 more than their iPhone 13 counterparts.

° Apple make its latest A16 processor exclusive to the Pro models in the iPhone 14 lineup.

° At least some of the models will be eSIM-only. 

° The ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ will contain 8GB of RAM.

° Some will sport 120GHz displays.

° The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models will have a hole + pill design.

° The top two models have also have OLED screens.

° They will support the Wi-Fi 6E standard. 

° Black, white, blue, red and purple will be the color options for the iPhone 14, while graphite, gold, silver and purple will be available on the iPhone 14 Pro.

° There will be a new purple colorway for both iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro that shifts in tone depending on the lighting.
