Apple and iPhone mini replacement off to a rocky start . Of course, the iPhone 14 Pro Max sells very well.
Apple did not renew the iPhone mini line due to low demand during its two versions ( iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini ) and chose to offer the iPhone 14 Plus , a phone with a larger screen (6.7”), but without requiring the $1,099 that the iPhone Pro Max models cost , with this same panel size.
For $899, the iPhone 14 Plus looks like an interesting option. However, Apple customers do not think the same, at least for the moment.
The renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo conducted an analysis on Medium of the start of the pre-sale of the iPhone 14 and there is bad news for the iPhone 14 Plus .
What can we get from the start of the pre-sale of the iPhone 14?
As he reports, the demand for the new iPhone 14 went from good to poor. The most requested model has been the iPhone 14 Pro Max , while the iPhone 14 Plus was the least requested.
Users who did not get to the pre-sale first will have to wait more than four weeks to receive an iPhone 14 Pro Max or iPhone 14 Pro . This means that the demand has been great.
Instead, it is still possible to receive the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus on their official launch day.
As for the iPhone 14 Plus , Ming-Chi Kuo notes a “significantly longer than expected” demand.
The big iPhone could be a victim of Apple’s strategy. While the iPhone 14 Pro Max , iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 officially arrive on September 16, the iPhone 14 Plus will only arrive on October 7.
