Earlier this month, Apple issued an open press release to its customers that acknowledged both iPhone 14 Pro models would face severe supply constraints in light of the COVID-19 restrictions on one of the supply chains. As a result, customers would see even longer shipping delays for those models.
If you take a look at the U.S. online store now, you’ll see that estimated shipping times have been pushed to six weeks, with estimated delivery dates as soon as December 27, which is two days past the gift-opening season.
Just as Playstation 5’s have been hard to come by nowadays, if customers were to order their iPhone 14 Pro today, they might not receive them in time for Christmas. Our suggestion for you is to order electronics that would face longer shipping times sooner rather than later. The wait might as well be worth it for you. Otherwise, you should wait for Black Friday or Cyber Monday for even better deals.
If you can’t wait that long, the good news is that there are several iPhone models for you to consider as alternatives. For example, last year’s iPhone 13 Pro is still a great buy for those who still want the most out of their iPhone, and you might have a better chance at finding one at authorized resellers.
