The constant shortage of chips facing the technology industry is affecting the production of the iPhone 13, according to a new report Bloomberg.
Apple 2021 is expected to reduce production of the “iPhone 13” by as much as 10 million units due to shortages.
In the last three months of the year, Apple had planned to produce 90 million “iPhone 13” models, but Apple’s manufacturing partners were informed that the total amount would be lower because Broadcom and Texas Instruments could not ship enough components.
Apple’s “iPhone 13” stocks are already limited, and further shortages during the holidays will further push delivery deadlines.
According to the iFixit breakdown, the PiPhone 13 models use a Broadcom AFEM-8215 front module and a Broadcom BCM59365 wireless power receiver, along with an on-screen power management IC, a series driver, an LED flash driver and a Texas Instruments dual repeater.
Apple has been facing a shortage of chips for months, and devices like the MacBook Pro, iPhone 11, iPhone 12, iMac, MacBook Air, iPad Pro and others saw longer than usual delivery estimates when purchased at the Apple Store.
Back in September, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple would halve its MacBook shipments due to a lack of components, which may not bode well for upcoming MacBook Pro machines due to be unveiled on October 18th. it is associated with a lack of integrated power management circuits, a problem similar to the one that iPhone models now seem to face.
The continued shortage of chips is expected to last until 2022, and although Apple is facing supply problems due to the problem, it is one of the least affected companies in 2021. Other technology companies are also dealing with the lack of higher price components.
