New reports claim that Apple's upcoming smartphone iPhone 14 is allegedly having quality control problems concerning a cracked rear camera lens, as the tech giant prepares to launch its next-generation iPhones.

The tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the rear iPhone 14 camera lens is affected by quality issues that are causing it to fail.

'There's one more issue with quality that I would like to address. My latest survey indicates that one of Genius's iPhone 14 rear lenses has likely suffered from a coating-crack problem. 

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

The analyst, however, commented that the impact on iPhone 14 shipments can almost be ignored since Taiwanese firm Largan can fill the supply gap effectively. 'Using past experience, it is expected that the coating cracks will be resolved within 1-2 months. 

Nonetheless, if Genius is not able to resolve the issue, Largan will continue to receive orders from other companies,' he added.

Apparently, Kuo has stated that certain iPhone 14 components, such as display panels, are having supply chain issues, but despite this, Kuo believes that these issues will not have a profound effect on the production of the iPhone 14 models, which will go on sale in September.

As part of the lineup, there will be 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.

There is a possibility that Apple will stop manufacturing the iPhone mini with a screen size of 5.4 inches this year, however. Several reports have indicated that the new iPhone 14 will cost $100 more than the current iPhone 13.
