Apple iPhones will face the same issue that other android companies gonna face. Following automakers, it appears that smartphone companies will be the next in line to experience the effects of a growing worldwide scarcity of chips.
In a statement released Tuesday, Apple stated that it anticipates supply restrictions that might influence sales of the iPhone and the iPad in the upcoming quarter.
“The bulk of restrictions we’re experiencing are of the kind that I believe others are encountering, which I would categorize as an industry shortage,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said during a conference call with analysts on Tuesday.
Apple CFO Luca Maestri stated that the firm anticipates the impact of the worldwide chip shortage on its future releases to be “worse than what we experienced during the June quarter,” despite the fact that the business did not provide a precise estimate of how terrible the impact will be.
Though it is unclear whether or not Apple’s warning that supply constraints will harm the firm in the September quarter would have any influence on the iPhone 13, the company’s caution should be taken seriously.
Apple’s new iPhone will not be released until a certain date has been announced.
However, it is possible that it will happen in September. Similarly to the iPhone 12’s debut last year, the iPhone 13’s launch event may only be available in virtual reality.
This year, we may anticipate four new iPhones, including the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Mini, the iPhone 13 Pro, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The iPhone 13 is expected to be the most expensive of the four. Despite the fact that Apple has already revealed a flood of new goods this year, the company’s autumn event might see the introduction of the next iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7, AirPods 3, iPad mini 6, and upgrades to the MacBook Pro with more powerful processors.
Apple announced a record June quarter on Tuesday, due to an increase in iPhone sales of over 50% year over year to $39.6 billion, which helped the company achieve the milestone.
The popularity of Apple’s iPhone 12 range demonstrates that the company’s flagship device has maintained its appeal even after 14 years. Steve Jobs, one of Apple’s co-founders, presented the first iPhone in 2007.
Hence, global shortage will affect Apple iPhones too
