Apple's iPhone 13 series has been hit in the past by chip suppliers, to the point that Tim Cook says it cost the company $ 6 billion in lost sales for the fourth quarter of 2021. Now new report says Apple will not be able to deliver iPhone 13 Pro, or some iPad models, to customers across Asia.

According to Nikkei Asia, it is already too late for customers in the Philippines to order the iPhone 13 Pro for delivery before Christmas. This condition also applies to buyers in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Malaysia, as the average waiting time there is reportedly about four weeks.

It is now estimated that consumers are waiting eight weeks for the 256 GB iPad Space Gray and Wi-Fi, which means that delivery is expected on January 14, 2022.

Nikkei Asia says the iPad delays are due to Apple prioritizing iPhones, with 50% fewer iPads built in September and October than planned.
