Before the launch of the new generation of phones from the manufacturer with the bitten apple, we already talked about the possibility that the series iPhone 14 could suffer some type of delay in the distribution chain that would cause a lack of stock in the stores.
Said and done: If you plan to buy an iPhone 14 Pro or an iPhone 14 Pro Max, we are very afraid that the waiting times will be longer than in the rest of the models. And the fault lies with the Foxconn factory in charge of manufacturing these two models.
Mainly because they continue to have very high restrictions due to COVID-19, which has resulted in a notable reduction in their production capacity, for which the stock of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have been compromised.
Apple confirms the delay in the stock of the iPhone 14 Pro
As reported by Apple through a press release that has been collected by several specialized media, we see that the company founded by Steve Jobs has been forced to notify of stock problems with its new premium phones: ” COVID-19 restrictions have temporarily impacted the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max Master Assembly Facility located in Zhengzhou, China, and the facility is currently operating at a significantly reduced capacity, as we have during the COVID pandemic. -19, we are prioritizing the health and safety of workers in our supply chain.
We continue to see strong demand for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. However, we now expect lower iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shipments than we previously anticipated and customers will experience longer wait times to receive their new products.
We are working closely with our supplier to return to normal production levels while ensuring the health and safety of all workers.”
The company has not indicated when they will return to normal production levelsbut previous rumors suggest that Apple plans to move iPhone production to India in order to meet demand.
of this maIn other words, Apple’s goal is to increase production by 150% in that country so that 40-45% of iPhones are produced in India. (currently it is 4%). So the only thing we can do now is wait for production to pick up. And if you want an iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max, you will have to have a little patience.
