iPhone 14 Launch May Be Postponed: So Why?
You must have heard that the United States House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan as of the beginning of August and the tension between China and the United States has increased due to this visit. In fact, due to this increasing tension, the plans of many technology companies in the Asian continent began to fail.
According to the latest reports, it is stated that the launch of the iPhone 14 series will be delayed because one of the biggest customers of TSMC, one of the Taiwan-based chip manufacturers, is Apple, and the company provides chips to Pegatron in China, where iPhone models are assembled, Pelosi’s visit in question is between China and Taiwan. worsened the relationship.
Based on these reports, a number of trade bans have been made between Taiwan and the Republic of China, which means that some, if not all, of the hardware will be returned to Taiwan and eventually iPhone 14 production may be delayed.
For the first time, Apple is strongly diversifying its production.
In one of the worst cases, Pegatron’s Vice President and some of TSMC’s senior executives were spotted with Pelosi during the visit, so a more fierce trade war between Apple and other US-based companies between China and Taiwan could begin.
Apple is currently in talks with its Taiwanese partners and has requested the removal or replacement of the “Made in Taiwan” or “Republic of China” labels. It’s also not surprising that Ming-Chi Kuo’s sources claim that 6.1-inch iPhone 14 units will be coming out of Foxconn’s India factory.
