It was already foreseeable weeks ago: Anyone who wanted to put an iPhone 14 Pro (Max) under the Christmas tree would not be particularly lucky. But now the delivery prospects are improving and it is at least enough for a small New Year’s surprise.
Already at the beginning of November Apple warned potential customers regarding significant delivery difficulties iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max – the demand is too great, the production quantity too low. This was mainly due to the COVID lockdown, the largest iPhone factory in China. After further easing, the problem seems to be gradually solved and the Wait times are improving (Source: iMore).
Delivery situation of the iPhone 14 Pro (Max) is improving
It’s still too late to deliver on time for the festival, but with a bit of luck, new orders should arrive at the turn of the year or the beginning of the new year. Provided: Customers order in Apple online store. But the delivery problems should also improve in free trade.
Equally gratifying, the emergency call via satellite now works with the iPhone 14 Also in Germany:
We looked at Apple and did some spot checks. The result was always the same. If you still order an iPhone 14 Pro or an iPhone 14 Pro Max directly from Apple today, you can with one Delivery between December 29, 2022 and January 9, 2023 calculate. In some cases, there are even stock items in the local Apple stores. Ergo: Customers only have to wait a maximum of between 1.5 and 3 weeks. Previously it was often said to exercise patience for a whole month.
Can Apple make up lost ground?
Good and forgiving news for buyers and for Apple. However, it remains questionable whether all potential customers who have decided against a purchase due to the delivery problems will now change their minds. Well-known Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo was there earlier this month rather skeptical and predicted that the many customers their Purchase request will probably not make up for it. Accordingly, Apple could not completely make up for the missed sales opportunities. The new year will show whether the expert is correct in this regard.
