The same goes for the reasons for such a decision of the manufacturer: Currently, the Foxconn factory, the main supplier of Apple products, has already passed the strictest covid restrictions and is back to business as usual.
At the same time, they are talking about the onset of a production crisis, possibly caused by a shortage of personnel. It is noted that this trend will seriously affect Apple’s market share, because the sale of Pro models is extremely important for the manufacturer. The production gap is expected to be around 6 million units.
Morgan Stanley data also emerged last month, indicating that the waiting time for shipments of the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max has increased from 2-4 weeks to 4-5 weeks. Moreover, demand is still high and there is even a slight shortage.
