Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), an authoritative consultancy in the global display field, said in a report today that production of Apple’s new 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max this year is behind schedule.

He said that based on supply chain data throughout August, Apple’s iPhone 14 Max still lags behind the iPhone 14 Pro Max in panel volume, and is “far behind.”
He went on to say that this year Apple has more than triple the supply of the iPhone 14 Pro Max as the iPhone 14 Max.
Apple’s iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max will allegedly share the same 6.7-inch screen, although the panel itself will be different (the iPhone 14 Max doesn’t support Apple’s adaptive refresh rate technology), only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone The 14 Pro Max will enjoy ProMotion; in addition, the iPhone 14 Max will continue to use the unrecognizable “bangs” screen, but the iPhone 14 Pro Max will use the “Pro limited” “exclamation mark” punch-hole design.
IT House reported that the Nikkei Asian Review said in May that the production plan for the iPhone 14 Max had been delayed due to supply chain restrictions. But then Ming-Chi Kuo reported that while production of the iPhone 14 Max was behind schedule, the situation was “still under control.”
According to Ross Young’s report, the supply chain situation seems to have deteriorated after May. Of course, it may also be that Apple deliberately chose to prioritize Pro Max orders.
After all, in a two-month period, a lot of things can change drastically. If the iPhone 14 Max panel supply is as poor as Ross Young said, it means that the device may be delayed or severely limited (early launch).
Judging from the currently known information, the new iPhone 14 Max this year features a large screen and long battery life. Once released, it is expected to become the hottest model, although it may be more expensive than the “non-Pro” price in everyone’s mind. Much higher.
