The Potential Bad News for iPhone 12


The Potential Bad News for iPhone 12


Don't mean to alarm everyone, don't need to panic or anything. But there might be some bad news for the iPhone 12 lineup if there are some quality control issues like a month before mass production is supposed to start. So, fill you guys in keeping you in the loop things to be cautious about and maybe lower expectations. So that if anything remotely close to what we think is going to happen in September happens then we'll be okay but yeah, today's report is overall bad news. So prepare yourselves, let's begin. So in case, you weren't aware. Apple was looking for not one, not two, but three different display manufacturers for the iPhone 12 lineup, which may sound crazy, but actually might be kind of necessary. If you consider how many people buy iPhones every year compared to other smartphones that the iPhone competes with the very, very popular lineup.
And for the first time, Apple is planning for OLED iPhone variants this year, which is way more than they've done before you considered in 2017. They had one old iPhone the following year they had to and again to Like iPhones last year, but this year they want to double that to four with entry-level iPhones starting at rumoured pricing of $650 $750. For the larger variance, which I always thought was pretty insane if you consider that in years prior, the old led iPhone has always started at $1,000. So finding a way to get those displays a lot of lot cheaper. Then they were currently at because Samsung charges a lot for their screens and the old LED panels were the most expensive single part of the iPhone 1010 s and 11 of course not counting the LCD panels that went into the XR and 11. We're just talking about the O led iPhones this year. But the three display manufacturers Apple is relying on was Samsung which is the primary supplier for all the OLED panels so far, LG which has done a few OLED panels for Apple, none of them really flagship, like pretty much Apple's only been using LG displays. Whenever they do a certified refurbished iPhone or a replacement iPhone to see how things are going with them. They don't put complete faith in them yet, but the third one was BMV, which had a lot of things going for it. Because of the reports and rumours. We heard from supply chains was that Bo he had found a way to make OLED panels a lot cheaper than Samsung, which of course Apple was pleased about. And that was supposed to be kind of the main reason Apple was able to have these cheaper entry-level OLED iPhones at 650 and 750. Because obviously, OLED panels are the expensive part of the iPhone, so you kind of need to get a new display manufacturer to lower the cost without overeating profit. And now we're hearing reports that ble is essentially failing quality control standards for Apple and Samsung. Yes, bizarrely enough, Samsung wanted to start ordering OLED panels for POV, so there might have been a catch to that lower price point that Apple was promised. Initially, they were like, Hey, we can buy OLED displays at much cheaper than Samsung prices. This is good. Now we can have cheaper, better-looking iPhones. But if the standards don't hold up in the displays end up looking more crappy and they're not promising what we initially were telling Apple they could do that is bad news! overall because for one mass production of it iPhone 12 max the 6.1 inches OLED iPhone that's like 750 bucks that were supposed to start next month. So if they're just now trying to get all of their displays together all of the parts ready, I'm sure pretty much every other aspect of the phone is being produced right now in July is just when they start assembling the things. You know and putting them in boxes if they're running into this issue right now. I'm sure someone at Apple's got a big old headache right now. Because they have to figure out how can be we whip up another batch that meets quality control standards or it'd be we can't reach those standards Apple was expecting do they have to go with Samsung? Do they have to go with LG and either way, they're probably going to be more expensive than they originally were thinking. So worst-case scenario, this could mean that the iPhone 12 and 12 max the entry-level iPhones ended up costing more than we initially thought. I mean, maybe like 50 bucks more than we thought so maybe the 5.4 inch iPhone will be 700 bucks. That way they can say the iPhone 12 lineup still starts at 700 bucks just like the iPhone 11. It's just a much smaller iPhone than before. And then two Get the iPhone 12 max with the 6.1 inch OLED display, it'll be like 800 bucks instead of 750. So overall, I still think they would be pretty competitive and knowing that a lot of people make trade-in and monthly options. I don't think this changes my opinion on the iPhone 12. Being a supercycle a lot of people wanting to upgrade this year, and still undercutting a lot of their competitors with features and the fact that it still runs iOS is going to persuade. A lot of people to upgrade compared to Android phones with better specs, but less software support and less ecosystem compatibility, not willing to say any of those previous predictions. I made are inaccurate now but if we hear about these reports, less than a month before mass production is supposed to begin. It means that things could be going pretty poorly behind the scenes. I'm sure Apple is scrambling, and they likely want to reach those price points we heard about leaked a few months ago but probably going to be a lot more difficult. If they're looking at different parts at prices that they were originally promised and now have to be thrown out. Because they're not reaching quality control standards. So definitely not good to hear about. I'm worried about the price points because knowing that they might have to rely On Samsung even more heavily. Then they already are and how Samsung likes to price gouge Apple a little bit. I'm now having kind of a hard time believing that Apple is going to be able to start an OLED iPhone at $650. With 5g modems with an A 14 chip and a form factor that tiny and compact, it just seems like the impossible. But who knows maybe Apple will eat the profit this year and focus more on services. Because they don't want to profit too much of the iPhone. They want to make sure people stay within iOS, and the lower price points will keep that competitive advantage. They have over a lot of premium flagship androids which seem to be going up and up every year. So hoping for the best, but this is the latest report. And I'd like to keep you guys up to date with the iPhone 12 rumours and currently not good. That's the running state of that phone 12 right now, so hopefully, we hear something better soon. It's reported that Bo is whipping up a second batch that might hopefully reach standards, but we all know time is minimal right now. And this could even result in the iPhone getting delayed further than we initially thought.
