Why iPhone 7 “black onyx” is so hard to get?
The most popular color choice among buyers of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus expected was “black onyx”, which is now almost never get it. But it’s not that Apple is unable to cope with the demand for the new smartphones: delayed deliveries due to unexpected difficulties in manufacturing.
The glossy finish is much more difficult to produce than matte, so 30-40% of new iPhone not tested the quality of Apple and are sent for further processing, according to analysts from KGI Securities. The applied anodizing process consists of nine stages plus polished. Manufacturers admit the many errors, so until the shelves get only 60-70% of the iPhone.
With this, experts believe, is also linked to a higher demand for the iPhone 7 Plus compared to the usual “seven”: buyers want to imagine a version in the color “black onyx” and wait, when she will be back in stock. iPhone 7 Plus buy largely due to the new dual camera.
Therefore, we can hardly expect that Apple will keep up with demand for the iPhone 7 in the near future. While the company will not be able to eliminate errors in manufacturing, smartphones will have to wait for 1-2 months. Well, or to pre-order and get the iPhone 7 tomorrow, for example here.
