Recorded at Apple’s official authorized dealer systems in Vietnam, the iPhone 14 Pro duo is receiving the most attention, especially the purple iPhone 14 Pro Max version (Deep Purple).

Mr. Tuan Anh (District 3, Ho Chi Minh City), one of the subscribers to receive information about iPhone 14 Pro Max, shared that he quickly pre-ordered the product after the Apple event. “Last year, I ordered an iPhone 13 Pro Max to give to my wife, but I had to wait a long time, 2-3 weeks later than the scheduled appointment, to receive the device due to scarcity. Therefore, this year I actively ordered the product earlier, but I still don’t know if I will meet the same situation as last year.“
According to FPT Shop and F Studio systems, the number of registered customers interested in iPhone 14 has exceeded 52,000, Mobile World is 50,000, 24hStore is 35,000, CellphoneS is more than 25,000. The number of subscribers to receive product information is more than the iPhone 13 generation at the same time last year.
However, contrary to the worries of customers, the agents showed an optimistic attitude. Many commentators believe that the Vietnamese market’s priority and selling iPhone 14 earlier helps the source of goods to be more stable than in previous years.

This unit predicts that the new iPhone will continue to grow in sales compared to the previous generation, the number may be in the range of 30-50%, depending on the price announced this year. It is predicted that iPhone 14 Pro Max is still the most well-received product, likely to account for about two-thirds of the first deposit.
“The volume of goods in phase 1 will still be lower than the demand of customers in phase 1, it is expected that the amount of goods will be more stable in 1-2 weeks.

According to a representative of CellphoneS, iPhone 14 Pro Max is still the most interested model with 80% of registrations. iPhone 14 Pro accounts for 15%, iPhone 14 Plus 2% and iPhone 14 only 3%.
