iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shipments will be delayed in the foreseeable future, Apple states in his latest press release. Apple’s largest manufacturer Foxconn is struggling with a Covid-19 outbreak at its factory in Zengzhou, China. Although the factory is not closed, it produces significantly smaller quantities of ordered iPhones.
At the same time, the demand for the new Pro models from Apple remains quite high, these two circumstances – reduced production and consistently high demand – will mean that customers will have to wait longer for ordered devices.
Currently, the delivery times for a popular iPhone 14 Pro in space black with 128 GB of storage are three weeks, the same applies to the Max model. So if you want to have the new device by Christmas, you’ll have to make a decision and order it soon.
Rare statement on delivery bottlenecks
Apple’s press release is unusual in that the manufacturer has remained silent in recent years, although the deliveries of the new iPhones 13 in 2021 and early 2022 and des iPhone 12 in 2020 just as delayed.
Almost simultaneously with the bad news, Apple good news announced: As every year, the retailer is extending the return period for products purchased between November 4, 2022 and December 25, 2022 to January 8, 2023. These extended return periods are intended to allow customers to choose the wrong Christmas gifts without rushing after the Holidays can exchange. Excluded from this regulation are products that were purchased through financing from the mobile phone provider.
