Apple is facing production woes for its MacBook Pros, with delivery dates being pushed back into June, according to a report from Bloomberg. As a result of China's zero-tolerance policy for COVID-19 outbreaks, more than 30 Taiwanese companies, including major laptop manufacturer Quanta, have suspended production in China, the news outlet reported.
For Apple's highest-end, delivery times are estimated as late as June 16, while deliveries of lower-end configurations of the 14-inch MacBook Pro are set back until the end of May, Bloomberg said. The majority of other Apple laptop models like the and MacBook Air haven't been impacted and still offer same-day delivery or delivery within a few days of ordering, the report said. So far, no delays in shipments have been reported.
The latest MacBook Pros, which range in price from $999 to $6,000 or more, are powered by Apple's expanded M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max chips.
Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on production delays.
