Apple is being forced to adjust its production targets for the new iPhone 13 due to the continued shortage of computer chips for devices, Bloomberg has reported, citing sources, Qazet.az reports citing Sputnik.
According to the report, Apple planned to produce 90 million new iPhone models by the end of the year, but Broadcom and Texas Instruments will not be able to supply the required number of parts. As a result, Apple may have to reduce its iPhone 13 production targets this year by 10 million units.
As noted by Bloomberg, Apple is one of the main buyers of chips in the world, but despite its significant purchasing power, it faces the same problems as other electronics manufacturers. Meanwhile, major chipmakers have warned that demand will continue to outpace supply next year, and possibly even later, according to the agency.
