The iPhone 14 Pro series out-of-stock problem intensifies as the waiting period exceeds 40 days

Earlier this month, Apple issued a statement stating that the assembly plant in Zhengzhou, China, was affected by epidemic prevention restrictions, resulting in a significant reduction in production capacity of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. At that time, Apple estimated that the shipments of the above two iPhones would be lower than previous expectations, and consumers who ordered new models would have to wait for a long time. The latest information shows that the current orders will not be shipped until January next year.

Investment bank UBS research found that supply chain problems have further intensified. Currently, customers need to wait at least 41 days to order iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max on the official website of Apple in the United States. Consumers are currently unable to order the iPhone 14 Pro series as Christmas gifts, and UBS analysts also reminded investors not to have any positive expectations for Apple’s iPhone sales in the peak shopping season at the end of this year, which may even be lower than the original 83 million expected figures.

In mid-November, the iPhone 14 Pro series was ordered through the official website of Apple in Hong Kong, and the delivery speed was about a week faster than that of the official website in the United States; now it has synchronized with the United States, and Hong Kong customers also need to wait for more than 40 days. Zhengzhou announced a new round of epidemic prevention and control measures yesterday, restricting residents in high-risk areas from going out, and Foxconn’s iPhone production line may be further affected.
