One KeyBanc analyst considered the launch of the Apple iPhone 14 (NASDAQ :), which he believes is “mixed but in line with expectations”.
The carrier’s examinations showed strong demand for iPhone 14 Pro/Max models and weak demand for iPhone 14/Plus models.
Carrier store notes indicate that lower demand is likely attributable to limited upgrade specs against the iPhone 13 series, and promotional activity related to the iPhone 13 Pro/Max. “The combined carrier’s inventory of the iPhone 14 is far less than a single digital identification number, with a lot of inventory counting for the iPhone 14,” he wrote in a note.
If you order a Pro or Max, you will likely have to wait between one to four weeks and three to five weeks in a row. On the other hand, iPhone 14 is available in most stores.
The checks were impartial to Apple suppliers’ coverage of KeyBanc. The analyst reiterated his opinion that Broadcom (NASDAQ :), Qorvo (NASDAQ :), Qualcomm (NASDAQ :), Skyworks Solutions Inc (NASDAQ:) and Cirrus Logic (NASDAQ) as beneficiaries of content and unit growth in the second half of the year.
