Global delivery bottlenecks – Now the shortage of chips is also affecting Apple’s iPhones
– Now the chip shortage is also affecting Apple’s iPhones
According to a report, the US technology group cannot produce 10 million smartphones due to delivery bottlenecks.
According to a media report, the US technology group Apple has to lower its production target for the iPhone 13 due to the global shortage of chips. Apple wanted to produce 90 million devices by the end of the year, but now has to be satisfied with 80 million, as the financial news agency Bloomberg reported on Tuesday. The suppliers Broadcom and Texas Instruments could not supply enough semiconductors.
Apple introduced its new generation of iPhone just last month, including the iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Wedbush analyst Dan Ives said that demand for the new models was particularly high in China and the United States. “If the demand remains so high, then Apple will be missing five million iPhones 13 for the Christmas season.”
When the quarterly figures were presented in July, CEO Tim Cook warned that the global delivery problems would have an even greater impact in the current quarter.
