Apple in November warned consumers that it expects iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shipments to be lower than had been expected due to temporary COVID-19 restrictions at the Zhengzhou, China Foxconn factory where the handsets are assembled.
“We continue to see strong demand for iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. However, we now expect lower iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shipments than we previously anticipated, and customers will experience longer wait times to receive their new products,” the company had said. “We are working closely with our supplier to return to normal production levels.”
In the recent past, both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max were estimated to begin shipping in three to four weeks, according to Apple’s online store. However, supplies of the popular devices began to improve at the end of the holiday shopping season.
As mentioned by MacRumors, Apple’s online store in the United States currently shows all configurations of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max as in stock and ready to be shipped to customers within 24 hours.
