Those interested in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shouldn’t hesitate too long at the moment, because Apple has now announced that it expects to have major problems with the delivery of various devices from its own range at Christmas. The reason for this is the corona virus, because due to an outbreak in the iPhone main plant in Zhengzhou, China, this plant is currently working on the back burner.
Sometimes there are dramatic images around the plant because, according to media reports, there is an enormous lack of hygiene and qualitative living conditions for the workers. China’s not exactly squeamish handling of corona outbreaks has already attracted some attention in recent years.
Significantly reduced capacities endanger Apple’s Christmas deliveries
Due to the work in the Chinese lockdown mode, Apple sees the risk that customers will be confronted with bottlenecks in the Christmas business and will find partially empty or limited sales shelves. Above all, the assembly of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models is currently at risk. However, Apple is currently seeing a high demand for these two top devices and is therefore a little worried that not all needs can be covered, especially over the Christmas period.
Anyone who is interested in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max should get their hands on it now rather than tomorrow. In the run-up to Christmas, demand is likely to increase and the shelves are likely to become emptier.
Apple itself has said in a note to its investors that while the supply issues are annoying, the health and safety of local employees is a priority. However, this can at least be viewed with skepticism, given the images and videos some of which have been released by workers from the plant.
