Everything seems to indicate that the iPhone 15 Pro Max is selling like hot cakes. Production is not keeping up, and waiting times are getting longer, but not for long, according to this expert.
Apple is counting heavily on the success of the iPhone 15 to make up for the sluggish sales of the iPhone 14. It must be said that between worker strikes in China, a shortage of materials and a general decline in purchasing power, the year 2022 was sluggish for the firm and for smartphone manufacturers in general. But everything now seems to be back to normal in Cupertino.

In line with analyst forecasts, the iPhone 15s have won over the public, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the most successful model. In fact, it is such a hit that it has already disappeared from the shelves. The available devices have found buyers. While it is still possible to pre-order it, you will have to wait a long time to get your hands on it. In France, the wait to have a “basic” iPhone 15 Pro delivered is 3 to 4 weeksand depending on the configuration chosen, it is sometimes necessary to add a month to this period.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max is already no longer available, delays are getting longer
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, “the biggest supply bottleneck is the famous periscope camera sensor of the iPhone 15 Pro Max manufactured by LG Innotek. The latter offers a 5x optical zoom, and remains exclusive to Apple’s most powerful smartphone. According to Mr. Ming-Chi, Apple has decided to order the opening of several other lens manufacturing lines to meet demand, which should help fill iPhone 15 Pro Max stocks in the near future.
The iPhone 15s have barely been released when media attention is already turning to the iPhone 16, which will only be released in a year. In 2024, in addition to this periscopic lens, Apple smartphones will have the Wi-Fi 7 and a better ultra-wide-angle sensor. Furthermore, as these new components are more imposing, the iPhone 16 Pro should be even larger than now.
