iPhone 13 production fell 20% in September-October

Production of Apple Inc’s flagship iPhone 13 smartphones fell 20% short of previous plans in September and October, Reuters said the Nikkei reported.

After launching the iPhone 13 range and new iPads in September, a major threat looms over Apple as it scrambles to keep up with the global chip shortage and supply chain disruptions.

In October, for the first time in more than a decade, iPhone and iPad assembly was halted for several days due to supply chain constraints and restrictions on the use of power in China.

Through September and October, the reallocation of the shared components squeezed iPad assembly even more, leading to about 50% less production volume than planned, while the production forecast for older generations of iPhones also dropped around 25%.
