(CHK) Many sources have recently confirmed that the production process of iPhone 14 does not seem to go as smoothly as planned, forcing Apple to change suppliers.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported last week that some Apple memory and console suppliers are facing component shortages, which will have a “limited impact” on the batch. iPhone 14 stock this fall.

Just this morning, Ming-Chi Kuo continued to report that Apple may have to switch suppliers again because of persistent “quality problems” with some of the rear camera lenses on the iPhone 14.

Ming-Chi Kuo said that some camera lenses supplied by Genius “have coating quality problems (film cracks).” Apple has shifted orders for about 10 million lenses from Genius to Largan, another lens company, to avoid major delays in iPhone 14 production shipments.

Despite some setbacks, Ming-Chi Kuo believes Largan is well positioned to fill the supply gap. Based on his experience, Genius can take up to two months to resolve coating cracks on his lenses. If it takes longer, Largan should take the lead and continue to be the main lens supplier for the iPhone 14 series.

It should be noted that Apple orders components for new products months before their official launch, so there’s plenty of time to deal with such issues.

On the other hand, Ming-Chi Kuo also said that Apple has expanded the list of component suppliers for the iPhone 14 Pro models and that the integrated circuit SG Micro (Shengbang Microelectronics) has received the company’s quality certification. This shows that Apple also has a “Plan B” to avoid major delays in shipments of the iPhone 14 series.

Apple is expected to launch four new iPhone 14 models this year. Among them, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be the only models with faster A16 chip and new “pill + punch” screen design. Rumor has it that this year’s iPhone Pro models will feature a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera capable of 8K video recording.
