The iPhone 14 Plus does not receive the grand feedback among the other extensively advanced iPhones. Apple launched five smartphone models in 2022, which according to several tech geeks, is not a smart move by the multi-national company. Apple reportedly has asked a supplier company from China to halt the production of an element of the iPhone 14 Plus shortly after the launch, according to The Information. The company might want to estimate the demands before resuming the production of the smartphone. Two more companies that are known for iPhone component assembling also have stopped manufacturing up to 70% to 90% allegedly. As per another report, Apple has instructed the supplier companies to elevate the 14 Pro and Pro Max Production. While authorities remain silent without any comment on the statement. The iPhone modules are assembled in excessive secrecy by their supplier companies. Hence, we don’t have the complete picture so far of whether the company plans to resume iPhone 14 Plus production or not.

According to Bloomberg, demand for the new models did not lift to the mark as anticipated. However, Apple has endless zealous users who do not resist paying for pro-level smartphones, but the entry-level smartphones, unfortunately, failed to gain popularity among tech enthusiasts.
