If the latest rumors are to be believed, Apple will begin initial production of the unannounced iPhone 14 this month. This will be a so-called trail production, so mass production has not yet begun. But if all seems to be going well, the Cupertino-based company will start that next month.
Sources report this to the website IThome. This news might just be true. It happens more often that Apple starts production in the summer. Because then there is a good chance that many people can buy an iPhone 14 model in the fall. The presentation date is not yet known.
iPhone 14 in production
Several analysts are diametrically opposed when it comes to the future of the new iPhone. For example, Wall Street analysts are reporting that the new series is going to do quite well. But on the other hand, there are those who say that the sales success is going to depend on the disposable income of consumers.

Indeed, worldwide economies suffer from inflation, which means that money becomes worth less. Consumers buy less of the same money. On the other hand, wages are rising here and there. But that increase is not big enough to fully compensate for the gap in value in the coming period.
Apple is confident
Among other things, this has already caused the global smartphone market to take a hit. The market did not grow as expected, but actually shrank. Almost every manufacturer, including Apple, is affected by this. In addition, the cheaper smartphones also immediately score better, compared to expensive, high-end models.
Apple is confident in any case, reports IThome. The company shared positive and high expectations with manufacturing partners, who may soon have many orders to handle. The keynote for the iPhone 14 is possibly scheduled for September. The iPhone maker will likely announce that at a later date.
