A new report has emerged from Bloomberg claiming that Apple will be looking to ramp up its iPhone production for upcoming 2021 models. Based on details from supply chain partners, Cupertino will look to have iPhones ready at 20% off last year’s launch of a total of 90 million units during the initial period.
Despite the global chip shortage, Apple’s supply chain remains unaffected and major partners such as TSMC have already planned their orders in advance. It is rumored that the next iPhone launch date will happen in September.
Matthew Kanterman, a Bloomberg analyst, said:
(Apple is building on the strong momentum from the release of the iPhone 12 in 2020 and may continue to take advantage of 5G smartphone upgrades and the generally improved smartphone market to follow that up with another strong release.
However, the projected growth in the initial production slope is skewed due to the fact that the iPhone 12 was released later than usual in 2020, while the next iPhone is expected to return to the normal release window in late September). see below ..

The most prominent specifications of the upcoming iPhones
In terms of specifications, Bloomberg expects that at least one of the new iPhones (most likely Pro models) will feature an LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) display. These displays can instantly adjust the refresh rate providing improved battery life.
The new iPhones will also feature redesigned slimmer notches as expected in previous leaks.
As for the cameras, Apple will introduce a gradual upgrade of the video department with optical zoom. The chipsets that will succeed last year A14 should offer a similar hexa-core architecture
