Sometimes changes in the production line can reveal the sales trends of different iPhone models. The Philip Elmer-DeWitt site today reports on a document sent by Morgan Stanley to investors, in which it states that production of the iPhone 12 mini has been reduced in favor of the iPhone 12 Pro
Concretely, Apple would have requested that 2 million less units of the iPhone 12 mini be manufactured, to make 2 million more than the iPhone 12 Pro. If this is true, it indicates that demand for iPhone 12 Pro is higher than expected in Cupertino.
Big iPhones triumph, but in general all iPhones triumph
We can also add that the orders for the iPhone 12 mini are smaller, because for something he had to choose to stop production of this particular model. Many have appreciated the existence of a small iPhone 12, but it seems that the success is monopolized by the models with the bigger screen
The report also emphasizes the suspicions that we have seen for weeks in various media: Apple may have had a record quarter. We won’t know how many units of each iPhone model have been sold, but in terms of total revenue, the figure is expected to be very high. We will know them at the end of the month.
