Production of the new iPhone 13 series does not meet demand. The lack of a critical component has been waiting a long time for many versions of the phone.

However, high demand reportedly adds delays.

Lack of iPhone 13 camera module

Unnamed sources said Nikkei Asia, “Assemblers can still produce new iPhones, but there is a shortage on offer [in] that the stock of camera modules is dwindling. ”It reportedly refers to the components needed for optical image stabilization with sensor shift found in all four iPhone 13 models.

The Covid-19 pandemic exacerbates the problem for manufacturing facilities in Vietnam. But Nikkei Asia reports: “The situation could improve in mid-October, as production at one of the key plants for the production of iPhone camera modules in South Vietnam has gradually resumed in recent days after several months of outages and downtime.”

And high demand

Insufficient components are not the only reason why iPhone 13 customers have to wait. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also reports high demand for the new device, stating that it is selling faster than the iPhone 12 was immediately after launch.

Demand in China on launch day earlier in September was enough to bury the official Apple site. Chinese state media state that over 5 million units have been ordered in advance in that country.

Long wait on iPhone 13

The time between ordering many iPhone 13 models and the delivery date stretches for weeks. Devices ordered now may not arrive until November.

Order the base model iPhone 13 Pro Max on Apple’s website on Sept. 29, with an estimated arrival period from Nov. 1 to 8. The same is expected for the smaller iPhone 13 Pro. Order the 6.1-inch iPhone 13 and it arrives between October 20 and 25.

But the stock of the tiny iPhone 13 mini is not so limited, despite the lack of components. Cult Maca checked in several cities and this version is available for same day delivery. Otherwise, it is expected from October 12 to 15. This is probably an indicator of weak demand for this version. It is interested that Apple will reportedly not make a new 5.4-inch model after this one.
