Two individuals familiar with Apple’s supply chain have confirmed that the corporation has reduced manufacturing of the iPhone 14 Plus less than two weeks after the device’s launch.

According to one of the people, Apple has instructed at least one Chinese supplier to immediately halt production of components for the iPhone 14 Plus while its procurement team reevaluates demand for the product, which Apple has positioned as a more affordable alternative to its more expensive iPhone Pro models with a large display. According to the source, two further Chinese Apple suppliers who use the components and combine them into bigger modules are also lowering output by 70% and 90%, respectively, since they are the only ones that build the specialised module for iPhones.

According to The Information, Apple has suspended manufacturing of the iPhone 14 Plus while it reevaluates demand. This appears to confirm that the iPhone 14 Plus is off to a slow start.

The current story claims that Apple has asked at least one iPhone assembly partner to immediately stop manufacturing of the iPhone 14 Plus and has asked two component suppliers to reduce output by as much as 90%, all based on information from the supply chain. At least one iPhone supplier is said to have been told to increase component manufacturing for the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max versions, according to the report.

Apple has not issued a statement in response to these reports, but it seems safe to infer that the company does not believe consumers are interested in spending $899 on an iPhone that is not part of the Pro line.

The iPhone 14 Plus is stuck between the iPhone 14 Pro (which costs just $100 more) and the iPhone 14 Pro Max (which costs $200 more). The Information reports that Apple may still introduce an iPhone 15 Plus in 2019 despite the uncertainty surrounding the iPhone 14 Plus.
