Introducing the new iPhone 13 family in Sept, Apple has major issues with phone delivery. How is the delay in the models resolved?
According to a new DigiTimes report that has emerged, Apple has begun to give weight to the iPhone 13 Series by reducing the current chip order for older generation iPhone models.
iPhone 13 chip orders increased
Apple continues to sell iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 11 and iPhone SE 2020 models. Although previous versions have been discontinued, there are still issues with the delivery of the iPhone 13. Delivery times of 3-4 weeks are especially common in the US, Canada and the UK.
Plus, these delays aren’t just for: iPhone 13 models. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini seem to have 1-2 weeks, and the iPhone 11 up to 5 weeks. Since Apple did not anticipate the demand for the iPhone 13 Series so strong that it had to make a choice in production by TSMC.
Since TSMC will start production with 3nm technology in the second half of 2022, Apple is stuck in processor production. Because in order to switch to the production of new technology, they have to increase their production capacity, as Apple did.
The chip of the iPhones with the A16 processor, which we will see next year, is expected to be produced by TSMC with the 4nm architecture.
