Last week, well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a report stating that Yu Jingguang, one of Apple’s iPhone lens suppliers, had quality problems during a small batch test of the 1/2.6” 7P wide-angle lens of the 5.4-inch/6.1-inch iPhone 12. Will cause the iPhone 12 lens shipment time to be delayed.
On August 12, according to overseas media disclosures, the manufacturer Yujingguang denied the analyst Guo Mingchi’s report and stated that the production and testing of the 1/2.6” 7P wide-angle lens for the 5.4-inch/6.1-inch iPhone 12 are in normal progress, and It will not affect Apple’s procurement needs.
Judging from Yujingguang’s response, it is not clear whether the Apple lens is abnormal during the test, but it is certain that it will not affect Apple’s purchases. Moreover, Apple has more than one lens supplier. Even if Yujingguang has some problems, Apple can also purchase another order from Largan from another supplier.
This fall, Apple will release 4 different specifications of iPhone 12, including 5.4-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12/6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. And Apple plans to release it in two batches, and is expected to release two 6.1-inch products first.
