An article published by Bloomberg reveals the problems that Apple has had in its production of the new iPhone 13 due to the shortage of components.
Due to this drawback, the company has had to cut production of the device, reducing the number of phones by 10 million units.
Originally, the technology company was expected to produce 90 million of this new iPhone in the last three months of 2021. With the reduction, some models will take time to be available to certain buyers.
Several users have already evidenced these delays. Thus, if you purchase a phone today (October 13) at the Apple store, the device can be delivered during the week of November 12. That is, almost a month later.
Apple’s problem is mainly due to the inconvenience that Texas Instruments and Broadcom have had in supplying their components.
The former offer parts that are used in the displays, specifically in the new OLED panels of the Pro models, while Broadcom has been collaborating with Apple for several years and supplying certain wireless components.
Everything indicates that the shortage problem will continue over time, as semiconductor production times increased to an average of 21.7 weeks in September.
According to Bloomberg, the chip shortage not only affects the iPhone 13s, but has also caused inconvenience to produce enough Apple Watch Series 7 and other products.
So far, neither Broadcom nor Texas Instruments have commented on the inconvenience of sourcing components, while Apple has also not addressed the reduction in production of the iPhone 13.
