Last week, what Apple fans have been waiting for for almost a year happened: the US manufacturer presented its latest generation of smartphones. Shortly thereafter, advance sales of the four iPhone 14 models started and on September 16, this year’s spectacle was to culminate in the delivery of the devices. But now Apple seems to be struggling with delivery problems or a product shortage. The result is the same in both cases: significantly delayed deliveries. Although “clearly” almost doesn’t do justice to the situation.
Pre-orderers have to be patient
If you were one of the first to order one of the iPhone 14 variants, you may be able to count on prompt delivery. As is well known, first come, first served. For all other Apple enthusiasts, it’s time to wait. How long? The apple company does not reveal that. Some pre-orders are currently simply showing the status “Delivery date pending”.
On the German website, the manufacturer is a little more specific. Anyone who is currently ordering the iPhone 14 directly from Apple can expect delivery on September 20 – regardless of the memory or color variant chosen. That is the good news. Buyers of the iPhone 14 Plus, on the other hand, will have to wait until October 7th, while the iPhone 14 Pro will only be delivered between October 19th and 26th. There seem to be even greater delivery problems with the iPhone 14 Pro Max. If you order the cell phone now, you will have to wait until November 4 without a new iPhone in the worst case. And even in the best-case scenario, the smartphone won’t be delivered until October 26, according to Apple’s website.
It is currently unclear whether other providers could deliver Apple smartphones faster. So indicates about Freenetthe iPhone 14 Pro Max would be available in three to four weeks – and thus before the official Apple period. At Cyberport, however, it says so, the mobile phone will only be available from November 10th. However, not even the retailers themselves should know how valid the information is at the moment.
