Apple product analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has just said that some iPhone 14 rear camera lenses have a “crack lens coating” error.
This expert also said that, to prevent the problem from affecting iPhone 14 shipments expected to be released this fall, Apple has signed a contract with Largan, another lens supplier based in Vietnam. in Taiwan.
“My latest testing shows that the rear camera lenses of iPhone 14 manufactured by Genius have had glass coating quality issues,” Kuo said in a July 27 Twitter post, and the results Apple has “transferred about 10 million lens orders from Genius to Largan to avoid affecting product quality”.
In a second post later, Kuo stated that the lens coating cracking problem “can be resolved within 1-2 months”, so that “if Genius cannot deal with the problem, Largan will continue to receive get more orders”.
Another challenge with the production of the iPhone 14 also emerged last week when some panel and memory suppliers for this product fell into component shortages. However, Kuo’s analysis shows that this issue does not have much impact on “Apple House” output, as it has brought in other suppliers to fill the gap.
Apple is said to be very confident that the next-generation iPhone will surpass sales of its predecessor iPhone 13. Some supply chain clues have revealed that Samsung is trying to meet the number of orders up to 80 million screens in the third quarter for the iPhone 14 product line, including versions: Normal, Max, Pro and Pro Max.
