Apple doesn’t have enough chips for iPhone 13 series

Christmas is right around the corner. Everyone has already started scrambling for gifts in time for the holiday season. However, if you’re looking at an iPhone 13, you might want to keep your options open for other alternatives. According to a report, Apple is having trouble getting enough chips for iPhone 13 production.

As reported by Bloomberg, Apple might slash its iPhone 13 production for 2021 by as much as 10 million units. The company had previously envisioned 90 million units by the end of the year. As such, the slashed production numbers can create a visible dent in the availability of the iPhone 13 series all over the world.

Currently, Apple is still working to fill in the current backlog of preorders which started from its launch back in September. The company still has time to produce enough units for the current slate of orders, but it might have a harder time accommodating new orders.

Of course, this shouldn’t be a surprise. The global chip shortage has ravaged the tech industry since the pandemic started last year. Several tech companies are still struggling to meet the demand for new devices amid dwindling chip supplies.

Especially since the iPhone 13’s launch, Apple remains one of the biggest buyers for chipset components. The company isn’t even done for the year. Apple is set to host another event on October 18.
