It was reported by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that the rear camera lens of the iPhone 14 is experiencing quality issues due to manufacturing process issues.

Apple is preparing to launch its next-generation iPhones soon, and according to a new report from Bloomberg, the upcoming iPhone 14 is allegedly facing quality control issues due to cracks in the rear camera lens as tech giant prepares to launch its next-generation iPhones.

I would like to bring your attention to one more quality issue. It seems that one of Genius's iPhone 14 rear lenses is likely to have been affected by coating-crack quality issues, as I found out in my latest survey.

'Apple had transferred about 10 million lens orders from Genius to Largan to avoid any disruptions to iPhone 14 shipments,' the analyst wrote on Twitter.

On the other hand, Kuo did point out that the impact on iPhone 14 shipments could almost be overlooked as Taiwan-based Largan would be more than capable of filling the supply gap.

It is expected that the issue with the cracked coating will be resolved within one to two months based on the company's experience.

However, if Genius is unable to resolve the issue promptly, Largan will continue to receive orders,' he said.

Some iPhone 14 components, such as display panels, are experiencing supply chain issues, but Kuo said the issues will not affect mass production of the iPhone 14 models, which will be announced later this year.

It is expected that the phone lineup will include the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. The 5.4-inch iPhone mini might, however, be discontinued this year by the tech giant.
