iPhone customers already know that they’re facing longer wait times for iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models due to supply chain issues. Unfortunately, the delays appear to be getting longer.
MacRumors reports that Apple’s online store in the United States is showing estimated shipping times of six weeks or so, with deliveries for all iPhone 14 Pro models now only available after Christmas Day (December 27).
Analysts have said that they expect iPhone 14 supplies to be constrained, following lockdowns at the main Foxconn factory in China where the devices are assembled.
Foxconn is now expected to ship 79 million units in the current quarter, down from the previous 85 million handsets estimate, due to the COVID-19 restrictions imposed on the factory in Zhengzhou in recent weeks.
