The pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 13 lineup seem to be doing better than the iPhone 12 lineup according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

In his latest investor note, Kuo claims that the pre-order demand for the iPhone 13 Pro models is significantly higher than the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. His claims are based on the proportion of shipments and average delivery time for the different models. Overall, Kuo thinks the pre-order demand for the iPhone 13 lineup is better than the iPhone 12 models.

The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max made up 45 to 50% of the shipments with 3 to 5 weeks of delivery time. In comparison, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max made up 35 to 40% of shipments, and have 3 to 4 weeks of delivery time last year.

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini appear to decline this year compared to their predecessors. The newer models made up 50 to 55% of shipments with average delivery time of 1 to 2 weeks while the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini had higher shipment proportion of 60 to 65% last year.

Unlike the supply constraints which plagued the iPhone 12 lineup last year, Kuo estimates that stock supplies for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will stabilise by mid-November. In addition, he predicts iPhone shipments to increase 16% year-over-year in 2021 thanks to strong 5G demand and the U.S ban on Huawei.
