Apple’s production of MacBooks and iPads is facing delays on account of a global component shortage.
According to a report by the Nikkei, a shortage of chips has led to delays in key steps in the productions of Macbooks. Additionally, iPad assembly was also postponed as a result of a shortage of displays and display components, the report stated.
The shortage of components remains a supply chain issue for Apple, but has not yet impacted any product availability for consumers, Nikkei added.
Foxconn, Apple’s key supplier, has also warned of the chip shortage adversely affecting supply chains to clients.
