Apple launched the iPhone 12 series later than in previous years as a result of the global pandemic. The American tech giant is said to be facing supply chain issues for the new iPhones. Hence, the company is reported to have ordered more than 20 million units of older and cheaper iPhones.
According to a report by Nikkei Asia, Apple has asked its suppliers to prepare for more than 20 million iPhone XR, iPhone 11, and iPhone SE 2020 units from October till the end of the year. Because the company expects sales growth in the holiday season but it does not enough stock of the newer iPhone 12 series.
The figures for iPhone XR are unknown but since the company is reported to have ordered only more than 20 million total units, the orders for XR should be much lower than the other two phones.
Having said that, Apple has discontinued iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max with the launch of newer iPhones a few weeks back. Therefore, customers opting for the Pro models have no choice but to go with iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
