As DigiTimes reported, Apple has increased its iPhone 14 component orders from suppliers since anticipating great launch sales. It’s even believed to have already begun trial production of the ‌iPhone 14‌ lineup, with plans for mass production starting in August.

The iPhone 14 series is scheduled to launch in September this year with updated hardware and improved software. And Apple is so optimistic about it since it’s pushing its suppliers for more stock.

The Android industry, on the other hand, is struggling due to the ongoing economic conditions of people and supply chain hurdles. The most affected are the mid and budget segment OEMs since MediaTek, a smartphone chip manufacturer has reportedly had some of its clients cut orders by 30%.
