Apple expects that the market for these two product categories will be in short supply.
Although Apple set a new revenue record in the second fiscal quarter of 2021, there is also bad news for fans of the brand. Due to the large order volume, Apple may tolerate the global chip shortage better than other companies, but the company has also been affected by the crisis.
Apple CEO Tim Cook himself once said that the inventory shortage is mainly for the iPad and Mac Will be affected (Not iPhone and Apple Watch).
Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri said the inventory shortage could cost Apple $3.4 billion (in terms of third-quarter revenue). Experts suggest that it is difficult to get the latest iPad Pro tablet computer in the second half of 2021, but the inventory of the new color iMac will also be very tight. The latter can be ordered at any time without an official contact date, but depending on the leak, the delivery time may start on May 21.
