As if these weren’t enough, there is another, serious, speculation about a significant decrease in the sale of iPhone 15 in China.

iPhone to lose 20 Million in sales?

Apart from that, another factor that can be responsible for this huge loss is the competition from rival company Huawei. It is a big name in China and it has introduced a new smartphone Mate 60 Pro which is capable of ultrafast data connectivity and satellite calling. This new smartphone can give tough competition to the new iPhone 15.
Apple can possibly face a loss of 10 million iPhone shipments in 2024 because of the new Huawei phone, as per analysts. If we combine both factors of the iPhone ban at government places and Huawei, Apple can possibly lose 15-20 Million shipments.
There are other rumors about the features of the iPhone 15. It is speculated to get a 48MP primary rear camera, Dynamic Island, USB-C charging port, and the A16 Bionic chipset. It is very likely that both the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max can have a significant price hike during the Apple event. The iPhone 15 Pro price is expected to get a $100 hike and be available starting at $1099. On the other hand, the iPhone 15 Pro Max can start at $1299, marking a massive $200 hike. However, it should always be kept in mind that all these may not necessarily come true. Only time will tell what will happen after the Apple Event on 12 September.
