Apple has successfully overcome production challenges to ensure a steady supply of the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s telephoto camera system, according to recent reports. Supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed that the main obstacle for the device has been the tetraprism camera module, which boasts an impressive 5x optical zoom capacity.
To address this bottleneck, Apple has reportedly upgraded the specifications of the tetraprism lens provided by Largan Precision, a renowned supplier of optical lenses. This move aims to compensate for the supply issue and ensure a smooth production flow. In addition, Largan Precision has expanded its production lines specifically for the tetraprism lens in order to meet the high demand for the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
However, despite these efforts, shipping estimates for the much-anticipated device vary. Some configurations are expected to reach customers within 3-4 weeks, while others may face a longer waiting period of 6-7 weeks. This delay can be attributed to the significant demand for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, as Kuo states that it has already exceeded that of its predecessor, the iPhone 14 Pro Max, during the same period last year.
One contributing factor to the shipping delays is the delayed mass production of the iPhone 15 Pro Max compared to other models in the series. This delay has led to an increased wait time for those eager to get their hands on the latest flagship device from Apple.
For those interested in purchasing the iPhone 15 Pro Max, it is worth noting that the starting price in the U.S. is $1,199 for the model with 256GB of storage. However, it is important to keep in mind that all iPhone 15 models are now available for order and are set to be officially launched this Friday.
With Apple successfully addressing the production challenges for the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s telephoto camera system and taking steps to meet the high demand, customers can now look forward to enjoying the highly anticipated features of this flagship device.
