On Friday, June 17, the company started taking orders for the new model. However, as has been the case with a large number of other Apple products released in recent months, the product is showing longer than expected shipping estimates. In fact, some configurations are now showing an estimate of mid-August. This is due to supply chain issues around the world.
Deliveries are scheduled to begin in mid-August on some configurations (such as the 24GB unified memory upgrade).
Even though the stock models were available to order on the first day of availability, Apple is having trouble keeping up with demand and managing its supply of new machines in the midst of a global shortage of chips and labour. Even though the stock models were available to order, they are beginning to slip in some markets.
The shipment estimates for the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro in the United States are currently set for the middle of August. The Mac Studio is also experiencing delays, which can last up to three months from the time a customer places an order for the product.
The corporation has already addressed the issues, informing journalists that the coronavirus pandemic, especially in China, is to blame for the delays in production. In the past, the corporation stated that it expected supply challenges to continue into the next decade. A $4 to $8 billion loss in sales and an increase in production expenses are expected for Apple as a result of the problems.
