Earlier, there were reports that said that Apple could face supply chain issues with the iPhone 14 series due to the geopolitical turmoil between China and Taiwan. But as per Kuo, all is well and on schedule and the Apple iPhone 14 launch should not get delayed.
Apple has been strategically preparing for situations such as these as it has already got more supply chain partners on board for the iPhone 14 series. The company’s roster of supply chain partners speaks for the bulwark Apple is trying to create to protect its business from the waves of political instability, something that’s been noted by Kuo also. The tech giant, Kuo said in July, is well-prepared in case it faces short term shortages and supply gaps.
The tech analyst has made a string of Apple-related claims recently. He said that Apple will unveil its first ever mixed reality headset in January 2023 and that the launch could dispel the fears the investors have about the commercial success of mixed reality. The device is yet to hit the markets but Kuo added that after the first generation AR/MR headset which would test the waters, Apple has plans for a more affordable version by 2025. Plus, there is an AR-only headset in the making too which might be announced around 2024. In another claim, he said that Apple is going to switch all of its AirPods models to USB-C charging in 2023 by launching USB-C charging cases for them.
