Apple keeps up with demand and the iPhone 12 Pro delay their deliveries to December.
The Demand for the iPhone 12 Pro has surprised Apple And it’s causing shipments to continue to lag despite the device’s been on the market for several weeks now. We already told you a few days ago, the iPhone 12 Pro is being sold more than the normal iPhone 12, and it is something that nobody, not even Apple itself, counted on.
According to new reports that are coming in, Apple was totally taken by surprise by the very high demand levels of the iPhone 12 Pro, the more expensive of the two that are for sale.
And it seems that one of the reasons for these long lead times is the shortage of one or two specific components of the Pro models and they are related to power management chips.
The iPhone 12 Pro continue to extend their deliveries
Bloomberg has reported that Apple is struggling to get enough power management chips. Despite having multiple suppliers, the company cannot keep up due to high demand, which means that delivery periods do not stabilize.
«Apple Inc. is grappling with a shortage of vital chips that manage power consumption in iPhones and other devices, complicating its ability to meet the holiday demand for the latest version of its flagship device.«.
But that component is not all, as reported Nikkei, LiDAR components are also scarce And Apple is tackling the problem by repurposing parts of the iPad Pro.
«Demand for the iPhone 12 Pro has been much higher than Apple anticipated. To make matters worse, the company has been hit by supply constraints for some components, such as power chips and LiDAR components used for depth imaging functions. In response, Apple has reassigned some components intended for iPads to the iPhone 12 Pro«.
