Apple MacBook Pro shipments are also being delayed ‘due to Chinese locks

Despite moving locks and manufacturing upgrades, Apple Quanta manufacturer’s ability to manufacture MacBook Pro models at its Shanghai location is severely restricted, according to DigiTimes. Quanta has been able to restore roughly 30 percent of its production capacity in its Shanghai location after the locks closed last month, according to a Taiwan-based chain website. Quanta is Apple’s only assembly of 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros, which is widely manufactured at Shanghai’s ODM facility. Quanta vice-chairman CC Leung said on April 30 that the company’s Shanghai-based company has recovered around 30% of its capacity and plans to increase its capacity further to 50%.

The report said that many downstream assemblies may have restarted their production lines, but many also faced inadequate supply of cars for the same reason. Apple customers have been facing long delivery times of inconvenience for several weeks due to limited production capacity caused by locks and malfunctions. On Apple’s online store in the US, all pre-configured purchase options for the current 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro offer a delivery charge of July 29 – July 14.

The same dates apply to Mac Studio (20-Core / 48-Core CPU / GPU), although the 10-Core / 24-Core CPU / GPU configuration has a few better charges with May 17 – May 24 delivery window. Looking for the MacBook Air, 24-inch iMac, and Mac mini is not currently affected by the restrictions, while the Mac Pro is based on configuration options, but some run in May. According to DigiTimes, Apple has shifted its fleet from water to air to shorten transit schedules in the face of disruptive logistics in China, but a limited number of transfers have shifted to air transport, which is currently causing shortages.

Apple said last month that locksmiths in China and a shortage of minerals will continue to make it difficult to market enough to satisfy a strong customer demand as the year progresses, and this will affect prices. Apple’s May quarterly quarter. That begs the question: Why did Apple put all their eggs in one basket when it was Macbook Pro? What happens to diversification? Maybe the question of volume. When you sell 200 million iPhones a year, of course you want more manufacturers.

But the 14-inch MacBook Pro? They sell a total of 25 million Macs a year, and of these, 14 are not the most popular. Maybe something like 1-3 million a year. IOW, percent of iPhone volume.
