Big price drop? Apple slashes orders for new iPhone SE, 13
According to the latest news from the supply chain, Apple plans to cut orders for the new iPhone SE, and the cut rate has reached 20%. For a new machine, this is indeed an unusual phenomenon. Of course, after the news came out, Apple’s stock price also fell.
Nikkei Asia, citing supply chain sources connected to the matter, reported that Apple is cutting production capacity for the budget phone by 20% (2-3 million fewer iPhone SE orders this quarter). The figure for a 20% capacity cut is still surprising, the first of the series since 2020, and this ratio implies that the quarterly decline falls somewhere between 2-3 million phones.
The supply chain also revealed that Apple has also reduced orders for the iPhone 13 and AirPods, and it is unclear which model of AirPods orders were cut. Ming-Chi Kuo said on Twitter that iPhone SE 3 shipments this year were previously forecast to be 25-30 million, and now the forecast is revised to 15-20 million.
According to supply chain sources, AirPods orders for the whole of 2022 have also been significantly reduced by about 10 million. At the same time, iPhone 13 production has also declined, largely as a result of seasonal demand fluctuations.
Of course, some experts said that the delivery of the new iPhone SE was not smooth, and Apple did not rule out the possibility of price cuts in the future. However, the global core shortage is still serious, and they may still focus on the production of the iPhone 13 Pro series.
