Apple Plans to Boost iPhone 13 Production to Reach 90 Million Units Before 2022

Apple plans to boost its iPhone 13 production in order to reach 90 million units before the end of 2021. Ahead of Apple's expected launch for the company's next-generation iPhone this coming fall, a new report is claiming that the company is anticipating a full heavy demand for the brand new handset line.
Apple Plans to Produce 90 Million New Handsets in 2021The company has asked manufacturers to get ready to produce as much as 90 million new handsets this 2021. Citing sources that are familiar with Apple's plans, Bloomberg notes that Apple is expecting an increase in demand for its upcoming phones.
The report notes that Apple's order suggests that the company is now expecting a massive increase in demand as the world starts to emerge from its strict COVID-19 restrictions. With the demand for electronics increasing when the coronavirus came out, a new market demand could emerge with the world emerging from its COVID-19 restrictions as well.
Apple Numbers Suggest 75 Million iPhones Sold within Launch to End of the Year AppleInsider notes that according to the current market estimates, Apple already ships about 75 million iPhones between launch up to the end of the year. If the report really is accurate, the increase in orders would be accountable for a whopping 20% uptick year-over-year.
Aside from shipping volumes themselves, the report also rehashes a solid number of Apple iPhone 13 hardware rumors that were aired a few months ago by Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, and a few other industry insiders.
The report notes that this year's new iPhone lineup, given the code name D16, D17, D63, as well as D64, will be borrowing a design that was introduced with the Apple iPhone 12 in 2020. Apple Leaks have also been giving buyers a potential peak at what the new features the iPhone 13 could include.
Apple New IGZO and LTPO TechnologyThis is albeit with a few other features as well. Apple is also planning to introduce its very first low-temperature polycrystalline oxide or LTPO iPhone display on maybe at least one of its models. This would then enable variable refresh rates that are capable of spanning the spectrum.
The high-efficiency indium gallium zinc oxide or IGZO technology is now expected to accompany the newer LTPO hardware. Apple, as of the moment, uses the LTPO solution in its Apple Watch in order to help facilitate the wearables' new always-on screen.
Apple Display UpgradesOther previous rumblings also pegged Apple to be leveraging the LTPO tech in two of its iPhones for 2021. Both of them could support Apple's visually-upgraded 120Hz ProMotion feature. Leaks suggest that the Apple iPhone 13 release date could be on September 2021.
As of the moment, there are already quite a number of expectations for the upcoming Apple iPhone 13 from camera capabilities to other features. As to whether or not they are official, the confirmation has to come from Apple itself. If the company is planning to sell 90 million new iPhones before the year ends, buyers can expect a wider availability of the model which these manufacturers are producing.
