Apple Stock News: Popularity of iPhone 14 Plus Surpasses That of iPhone 13 Mini
Apple Stock News: According to MacRumors, the iPhone 14 Plus, which effectively replaced the iPhone 13 tiny in Apple’s flagship lineup, seems to be selling more units than the smaller model. Shipments of the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus are 59% greater than they were for the 5.4-inch iPhone 13 small over the same period year-over-year when comparing iPhone panel shipment statistics from June 2022 through April 2023 (allocating a two-month prediction). While looking like it’s doing much better than the iPhone 13 mini, the iPhone 14 Plus is still far behind the iPhone 14 Pro Max. With a 2% rise in panel shipments year over year as of April, the iPhone 14 series appears to be slightly more popular overall than the prior series.
iPhone 15 MFi Requirements
According to MacRumors, when utilized with MFi-certified USB-C chargers, such as its own 20W Power Adapter, Apple’s next iPhone 15 series will offer quicker charging rates. In order to comply with European legislation that call for electronic products to have non-proprietary, common charging methods, Apple will switch the iPhone this year from Lightning to USB-C. Apple is anticipated to only allow MFi-certified cables and chargers to take advantage of certain USB-C benefits, including as quicker charging and data rates. 230–240 million units of Apple’s USB-C 20W Power Adapter are anticipated to be shipped in 2023, representing a significant 30–40% YoY rise.
Mumbai’s First Apple Store Will Open
According to MacRumors, after repeated delays, Apple will finally open its flagship India retail location in Mumbai next month. A second location will soon open in New Delhi. The 22000-square-foot Mumbai store will be a retail icon like the Apple stores in Los Angeles, New York, Beijing, and Singapore. It will be situated in the Jio World Drive mall. In the Select CityWalk mall in New Delhi, the second, smaller store, which will be 10,000 to 12,000 square feet, is anticipated to open in April or June. Due to the increasing demand for Apple products over the past few years, India has gained importance within Apple. Apple has the opportunity to gain ground in India, the second-largest smartphone market in the world, even if the majority of its citizens use Android devices.
