The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max versions are still in high demand, according to Apple.
According to Apple, the business that makes the iPhone, the Covid outbreak at one of the firm’s production sites in China has had a substantial impact on iPhone production, according to the filing statement from Apple.
Apple’s announcement, “Covid-19 restrictions have temporarily hampered the main iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max assembly facilities located in Zhengzhou, China.” The plant is currently working at a capacity that is much below normal.
With considerable shipment delays anticipated in the upcoming months, this is awful news that couldn’t have come at a worse time for customers seeking to get the newest iPhone model in time for Christmas.
Apple Store says, shipping wait times for Pro models are now 4-5 weeks, but they might increase significantly if there are protracted Covid outages.
While buyers would have to wait longer to obtain their new items, “we now expect iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shipments to be lower than we previously expected.”
