As we expect the official launch of the long-awaited iPhone 14 in the next few months, the popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed today that the mobile brand is increasingly focusing its wide-camera 7P lens orders on a single supplier.
According to the popular Apple leaker’s most recent supply chain data, component maker Sunny Optical is gaining a larger proportion of Apple’s orders. The 7P lens could somewhat increase image quality even though the less costly iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max do not get the 48 MP primary camera upgrade like the Pro models.
Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Sunny Optical, one of Apple’s suppliers, has doubled order capacity and controls a shipment share of between 50 and 60 percent for the more expensive models.
The same supplier’s shipment share for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max is between 55 and 65 percent. Sunny Optical will be able to negotiate with Apple as its production capacity rises, allowing it to provide the tech giant with more orders and, as a result, grow its market share.
However, as per the report, the primary iPhone lens, also known as the wide-angle lens, has the biggest profit margin of all the lenses, therefore Sunny Optical will benefit from keeping up with production growth. It appears that Sunny Optical, which also happens to be Apple’s supplier of iPhone lenses, has outperformed Largan in terms of capability.
Depending on how this supplier develops, Sunny Optical might end up serving as the primary source of ToF lenses for the iPhone 15 by 2023. Orders placed with Sunny Optical will have a financial impact on that company’s competitors because Yujingguang is the primary supplier of current ToF lenses to Apple.
In all, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are anticipated to have 12MP rear cameras, and the notch is anticipated to be the same size as the iPhone 13 family. With Apple reportedly including a 48MP sensor in both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, therefore anticipate significant optical advancements from the next Pro line.
