The global chip crisis has crippled the production of many consumer electronics. With auto-makers almost shutting down their business temporarily, it seems that now Apple has also come under the effect of the crisis.
According to sources, the Cupertino giant reported a delay in the production of the MacBooks and iPads due to the crisis.
Previously, it was reported that Apple had yet to face any severe issues due to the chip crisis, but now it seems that the crisis has finally caught up to the Cupertino giant. According to sources, the iPad assembly is also suffering due to the shortage of displays and display components. Owing to the component shortage, Apple has reportedly pushed back a portion of component orders for the two devices from the first half of this year to the second half.
But, reports also suggest that iPhone production is yet to be affected by the shortage of components. However, though iPhones production is safe, MacBooks and iPods have been severely affected.
But, the shortage of components remains a supply chain issue for Apple but has not yet impacted any product available for consumers. Foxconn, the major supplier of Apple, has warned of the chip shortage affecting supply chains to clients, with businesses and consumers across the globe facing the brunt of an unprecedented shortage in semiconductor microchips.
