Apple suppliers Foxconn and Pegatron will share orders for the Cupertino tech giant’s mini “iPhone 13” later in 2021, according to a new report citing supply chain sources.
According to sources quoted by DigiTimes On Tuesday, Pegatron won orders for Apple’s next 5.4-inch iPhone upgrade. It will also handle a “portion of orders” for another 6.1-inch iPhone 13 model.
Orders for the smaller iPhone are reportedly down dramatically compared to previous years due to lower-than-expected iPhone 12 mini sales.
Although Pegatron will take over the production of other iPhone models this year, Foxconn will continue to be the main assembler of the “iPhone 13” models. DigiTimes It also reports that Luxshare will become an iPhone production partner in 2021.
The report that Pegatron is accepting iPhone production orders comes months after Apple suspended its association with the Taiwanese company over alleged labor violations. Apple put Pegatron on probation as a result.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the “iPhone 13 Pro” models will feature “impressive” updates such as a new ultra-wide camera lens and wider use of optical image stabilization. However, the so-called “iPhone 13 mini” is rumored to be Apple’s latest 5.4-inch model as it will move to larger phones in 2022.
