According to the report (machine translation):
In the second quarter of 2022, Apple is rumored to expand its iPhone 13 production plan. About 10 million units of the high-end models of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are expected to be produced, and the supply chain of Apple is expected to benefit as a result.

The report suggests that Apple’s supply chain, which has been struggling to meet demand due to COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions in China, is on the upswing. Many of Apple’s suppliers have been forced to temporarily or completely stop production, putting the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and other consumer electronics at risk of being out of stock or unavailable at any given time.
The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, which will be unveiled in September 2021, will only offer minor improvements over the iPhone 12 Pro from the previous year. The current high-end iPhones have a ProMotion display, improved low-light camera capabilities, a smaller notch, and faster processing. Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro received a new Alpine Green color as part of the company’s spring refresh.
This Thursday, Apple will release its Q2 2022 earnings report, which will include information on the company’s performance this quarter, the launch of the new Mac Studio, Studio Display, and 5G-enabled iPhone SE and iPad Air, and how the company is coping with supply chain constraints.
