Apple bumps up iphone production by 30% for 2021 Q1

On Tuesday, according to a report from Japan’s Nikkei newspaper, Apple Inc plans on boosting the production number of iphones by nearly 30% to up to 96 million units.

According to the report, which cites sources familiar with the matter at hand, Apple has asked suppliers to produce around 95 million to 96 million iPhones, including its flagship iPhone 12 models; a shortage of key parts could however threaten the plan, said sources.

According to the tentative full-year forecast that Apple has shared with suppliers, it plans on producing up to 230 million iPhones in 2021, which includes a mix of old and new models. Apple did not immediately respond to requests for comments.
