Apple is all set to release the iPhone 7. However, there will only be a limited supply of Apple?s latest smartphone during the launch.
This, because Apple needs more time to manufacture some important components of the iPhone 7. “If Apple sticks to its launch schedule from last year, there may not be enough supply at the beginning, as some suppliers are still trying to fix low yield rates of their components,” a source said. ?
The shortage in supply will affect the sales revenue. “We estimate total iPhone 7 builds to be 74 (million) in 2H16F, compared to 84 (million) for iPhone 6s in 2H15. Together with pricing pressure, we expect most Apple food chain suppliers to see (year-on-year) revenue decline for the rest of the year,” Jeff Pu, an analyst at Yuanta Investment Consulting, mentioned in his note, according to the Nikkei Asian Review.
The existing iPhone models are also not performing well in the market.
