Getting your hands on an iPhone 13 this fall might turn into a competition, but Apple is taking steps to proactively remedy the potential situation.
Apple announced this week that it expects a massive demand for its latest iPhone and while that could make it difficult to get your hands on one, the company is trying to minimize supply issues before the phone even launches.
A recent report revealed that Apple ordered more than one million A15 Bionic chips for iPhone 13 production. It remains to be seen if that full order will work out due to the global chip shortage that is plaguing the technology and automotive industries.
The company also announced that it is trying to boost production of the new iPhone by at least 20% more than the production numbers of the iPhone 12 last year. Apple aims to produce 90 million units of the iPhone 13 this year, while 75 million iPhone 12 models were produced last year.
And while the company seems to be getting ahead of the anticipated demand for the new smartphone, will the company’s efforts be enough? Or will getting your hands on an iPhone 13 this fall become a nightmare?
