Some reports have also suggested that as in the third quarter of each year the iPhone market is quite down as the majority of the customers prefer Apple’s latest release and generally wait during that particular period for the arrival of the new model and therefore Apple will most possibly target this particular timeframe to acquire supplies of chips.

An Analyst from CFRA Angelo Zino stated that “I think it largely reflects the timing of new product releases, specifically related to new iPhone launches in September.”

“New phone cycles typically start off supply-constrained given the high demand needs ahead of the holiday selling season.”
