Apple finally able to meet iPhone 13's demand while the supply for MacBook Pro models still lags behind
According to Rod Hall, an analyst for Goldman Sachs, Apple is finally able to meet the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro’s demand. In the U.S., the order delivery times for the iPhone 13 and the 13 Pro have shrunken down to one-to-two days. For the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the situation has improved since launch but the delivery times remain close to four days.
Contrary to iPhones, Apple’s new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros are increasingly hard to find. In the U.S., the order delivery times for the 14-inch MacBook Pro have jumped by a week to a total of 23 days. The delivery times for the 16-inch MacBook Pro model have remained unchanged. Interestingly, MacBook Pros with an M1 Max have become easier to find than M1 Pro models owing to improved supply.
Globally, all MacBook Pro models have delivery times of 20 days or more.
Long story short, the global supply shortages are easing, resulting in an improved supply of electronics. If things keep progressing as they are, we will reportedly see the supply chain constraints lift to a major extent by early 2023.
