Although Apple largely managed to maintain its production during the Covid-19 pandemic, global chip shortages are beginning to affect the company. According to a new report, Apple is facing a delay in the production of MacBook and iPad devices due to the lack of components.
According to a Nikkei report, part of the company’s orders has now been postponed to the second half of 2021, which puts Apple in an awkward position when it comes to MacBook and iPad product lines.

This coincides with information that emerged earlier in the week, suggesting that a number of industries are facing problems with a shortage of display driver chips, which are necessary for the LCD screen to function. This has consequences for the production of cars, consumer electronics, and now tablets.
It is suggested that the iPhone could be next on the list of devices that will face production problems. Sources claim that stocks of components are scarce, which could affect production in the coming months.
