Despite the wave of anticipation that has greeted the release of the iPhone 14 Max, the device is currently about 3 week’s behind schedule due to the impact of lockdowns on Apple’s supply chains in China.
This was revealed by Jeff Pu, a Haitong International Securities analyst. He added that iPhone that is expected to bring a larger, 6.7-inch display size to its non-Pro line of smartphones.
According to Pu, the delay for the iPhone 14 Max has specifically been caused by Pegatron stopping production during Shanghai’s latest lockdown. The device is not expected to enter mass production until late August, likely just weeks before the new iPhone lineup is unveiled at a September Apple event.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max are still on schedule to reach mass production in early August, weeks ahead of the iPhone 14 Max, according to Pu.
