iPhone 15 Pro Max Shipments Delayed Globally Due To Strong Demand

1 minute, 30 seconds Read

Apple launched the iPhone 15 series last week. The entire lineup comprising of the standard, plus, pro, and pro max variants are up for pre-orders in many countries around the world. Apple will start shipping the pre-booked units from September 22. Both the non-pro and pro models pack significant upgrades compared to their predecessors. It seems that the iPhone 15 series has received a great response from customers. However, this has resulted in an unfortunate development. The high demand has led to delayed shipments of orders. 

iPhone 15 series pre-order shipments delayed

Apple started taking the pre-orders for the iPhone 15 series just yesterday. Within a short span, the high demand for the latest-generation flagship phones has led to many buyers reporting a delay in the shipment of their orders. The estimated shipment dates have slipped to as far as mid-November as per Apple’s website for the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Mark Gurman reports that the delivery times are increasingly getting delayed for the iPhone 15 Pro Max. It is delayed by up to 8 weeks in India, 6-7 weeks in China and Canada, and 7-8 weeks in the UK. The delayed orders are applicable for both home and in-store pickup deliveries. Apart from the Pro models, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are also getting delayed by up to 2 weeks in some markets. 

Apple’s Pro iPhone variants are exclusively manufactured in China. Hence, it does not have any other avenue to ramp up production. This could also lead to a further delay if the demand for iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max continues to surge. Additionally, the latest offering’s titanium frame and A17 Pro based on a 3nm process is already challenging to manufacture. The regular non-pro iPhone models are made in India and Vietnam too, hence mitigating their supply issues.
