When the iPhone 13 was launched in September, it received rave reviews (as did ours), but it appears that sales figures for these smartphones aren’t quite what Apple had anticipated.
According to the Chai report, Apple has told its component suppliers that demand for the iPhone 13 has “weakened,” and there’s no guarantee that either supply or demand will grow next year, as had been expected.
Due to the worldwide chip scarcity that is affecting almost every electronics firm on the planet at the moment, Apple has already reduced iPhone 13 manufacturing numbers from 90 million to 80 million.

If these talks between Apple and its suppliers have occurred, as Bloomberg is one of the most dependable sources, it won’t necessarily indicate how simple it will be to acquire an iPhone 13 in the run-up to Christmas.
The standard iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro should ship in about a week to anywhere in the United States or UK, according to the Apple websites. The shipping time for the basic iPhone 13 was about a week, whereas for the superior model it was about two weeks. It’s not exactly express delivery, but it’s not excessive either.
To summarize, the supply issues that Apple is currently facing appear to have been offset by a decline in demand, at least for the time being. We’ll just have to wait and see how things shape up over the next two years.
Why is the iPhone 13 selling so slowly, despite being faster than the iPhone 12?
In the first quarter of this year, Apple set a new all-time high by selling an all-time high number of smartphones. It appears that demand for Apple phones isn’t as great this time around – so what’s going on?
The ongoing effects of the pandemic and the worldwide chip shortage, which prevents makers from getting devices out the door fast enough, have caused shortages in both the iPhone 12 and 13. Despite long delivery delays, however, the iPhone 12 did well in sales.
Another portion of the answer is due to the arrival of the iPhone 12. It was the first iPhone with 5G, which caused it to be delayed (leading to more pent-up demand), and it arrived at a time when much of the world had been sitting in their homes all year – meaning individuals may have had a little extra time and money on their hands.
The iPhone 13, on the other hand, does not include a major new feature or one that was expected to be unveiled on time. We’re all considerably more busy and distracted now than we were in 2015, so it’s no surprise that the iPhone 13 hasn’t matched sales figures as of yet.
