The recent turmoil at the Foxconn plant in Zhengzhou, China will likely result in a shortfall of an estimated 6 million iPhone 14 Pro units according to the latest Bloomberg report. The figure is based on people familiar with Apple’s assembly operations. The exact number is still to be determined and will depend on how Foxconn handles the situation. Foxconn’s Zhengzhou plant is the primary production facility for the iPhone 14 Pro series models.
Apple already issued an official statement earlier this month which confirmed shipment delays for its iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. Some retailers like Best Buy have already warned that iPhone 14 Pro series units may be short in supply this holiday season. Production capacity for the regular iPhone 14 and 14Plus was also lowered by 3 million units but due to lower consumer demand for those models.
