Who today has a 14 inch or a 16 inch MacBook Pro ordered from Apple, who will probably receive the notebook between June 27th and July 13th. The MacBook Air is expected to be delivered between June 25th and July 4th, so customers sometimes have to wait more than two months for their order to be delivered.
If you need your MacBook faster, you should order from a dealer who still has stock – the MacBook Air, for example, is still available available for 930 euros on Amazon. The long delivery delays are partly due to the fact that production had to be stopped in China due to COVID-related lockdowns.
According to a report by DigiTimes Quanta Computer is gradually ramping up MacBook production in Shanghai again. The Quanta Computer factories in Shanghai are responsible for more than 60 percent of the total production volume of the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro, the high-end models of the MacBook Pro are even produced exclusively at Quanta Computer.
DigiTimes assumes that Apple will be able to ship a total of five million MacBooks in the second quarter of 2022, one million fewer than originally expected. However, this forecast is based on the assumption that there will be no further lockdowns in Shanghai. In any case, the availability of MacBooks is likely to remain somewhat limited over the next few months.
