The iPhone 12: a success despite its late release. Apple’s new line of smartphones (four models in all) is expected to be 80 million copies produced by the end of the year, Taiwanese site DigiTimes said.
An aging installed base
According to him, the prices of the iPhone 12 and its “mini” version should indeed encourage customers to renew their iPhone. Some analysts recently calculated that the installed fleet is aging with devices over three years old on average.
These forecasts correspond with information that appeared last July. Sources confirmed that TSMC was about to deliver 80 million A14 Bionic chips (engraved in 5 nm) to Apple to equip its iPhone 12.
