iPad Pro: shortage of mini-LED screens causes delivery delays of several months
The iPad Pro 2021 will finally arrive later than expected. A few days before its official launch, a report indicates that Apple is suffering the full brunt of the shortage of components, especially at the level of the tablet’s mini-LED screen. Some pre-ordered users will have to wait until July to receive it.
We’ve known it for a few weeks now, Apple is not spared by the shortage of components that affects the entire tech industry. Whether it is for its smartphones or its PCs, it is all its production that suffers a slowdown. The iPad Pro is no exception, and many will need to wait several weeks before you can get it.
While the firm’s new tablet will be officially available on May 21, pre-orders are already open. But not everything goes as planned for buyers who were hoping to receive it as soon as it launches. Indeed, some are not entitled to delivery only in June, or even next July. A delay that would be caused by the screen of the iPad Pro.
Apple – demand for iPad Pro mini LED seems strong, production of M1 chips increases
The iPad Pro is out of stock even before its release
Bloomberg reports this, claiming that the new model’s characteristic mini-LEDs are causing the production problems. As we told you last month, Apple has to deal with the shortage of screens, which forces the manufacturer to extend delivery times. Its suppliers themselves find it difficult to source the components necessary for the mass production of these screens, and the situation does not seem to have improved with time.
However, this only concerns the 12.9-inch model. The 11-inch model, meanwhile, is equipped with a standard screen and is therefore not affected by the shortage. This will not prevent Apple from posting a hole in its treasury in 2012. During its recent financial report, the executives of the company indicated to envisage a shortfall of $ 4 billion because of the current context. The launch of the iMac 2021 should not escape this, too.
