It seems that the production of iPhone 13 phones is finally balancing with the demand of customers, which will also improve the supply process. Also, with the reduction of the expected delivery time, buyers are expected to move towards higher models of this series.
Balance of supply and demand iPhone 13
Samik Chatterjee, Senior Analyst at Jeep Morgan Investment Bank explains The release time of the iPhone 13 Mini, 13, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max is balanced in the 15th week. According to him, now the average delivery time of the mentioned models has reached 3, 3, 5 and 3 days, respectively. This time last week was 2, 2, 5 and 5 days, which is almost the same.
More specifically, in the United States, where 35% of the world’s iPhones are shipped, the delivery time of the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max has been reduced to between 1 and 2 days. Also, the delivery time of iPhone 13 mini and its standard version has reached zero and it will be offered as soon as possible.
On the other hand, in the Chinese market, where about 15% of the world’s iPhones are sold, the delivery time in the 15th week has reached 0, 0, 5, 1 days. In the UK and Germany, delivery time for all models has been reduced to six days, all of which indicates that Apple’s supply chain is catching up with customer demand.
Although the delivery time of iPhones has generally improved, the higher versions still arrive a little later. Chatterjee also adds in his report that the supply-demand balance between Apple is positive for the last quarter of this year. However, the tech giant is expected to reach its desired inventory level in the first quarter of next year.
