News that the iPhone 14 started production Hon Hai became the big winner
Although it is still a bit early for the iPhone 14 to be released, the foundries have already started to act under Apple's guidance.
According to the latest news from the upstream supply chain, Apple's iPhone 14 has recently entered the foundry trial production stage, and Lixin Precision is rumored to have not yet obtained the new product trial production import mass production service order (NPI), so it will not be able to get the high-end iPhone 14 foundry, and is only expected to get the basic iPhone 14 order this year, becoming the second supplier.
It is worth mentioning that Hon Hai is sitting on the leading iPhone foundry throne.
Previous news shows that this year's iPhone 14 series configuration gap will pull a lot, which will be an effect of Apple-led, hoping that users buy mid-range, or even high-end machines more users, which can bring better profits.
The breaking news mentions that the memory components of the iPhone 14 series have now been confirmed and the mass production schedule is being accelerated, of which only the high-end Pro version is 8GB of RAM, while the camera is also better than the entry version, and the same series gap will be more obvious on this generation.
A report by Haitong International Securities analyst Jeff Pu late last year similarly claimed that the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max models will come with 8GB of RAM. This would be a significant increase over the 6GB of memory in the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro, and is the largest memory currently offered in an iPhone.
Non-Pro iPhone models tend to have less memory, so it seems likely that the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max will have less than 8GB of memory, while the rear-facing primary camera is also shrunken compared to high-end versions, and of course shrunken elsewhere.
