The production of few of the best-selling Apple devices such as Macbooks and iPads are facing global component shortage.

According to a Nikkei report, Apple’s Macbook and iPad production is being delayed due to component shortage.

According to the report, the delays are being caused due to shortage of chips, which in turn will be delaying some key steps of production of Macbooks.

iPad assembly, on the other hand, is facing delays due to the shortage of displays and display components. The report further claims that due to the component shortage, Apple has pushed back a portion of component orders for the two devices from the first half of this year to the second half. The report cited sources who were briefed on the matter.

According to the report, Apple’s production plans for iPhones have not been affected by the supply shortage, however, the supply of some components for the devices is “quite tight”.

The component shortage has impacted the production of Macbooks and iPads but the products are available to the buyer. According to the Nikkei report, the shortage of components remains a supply chain issue for Apple, but has not yet impacted any product availability for consumers.

Apple’s major supplier Foxconn has also warned of the chip shortage affecting supply chains to clients, with businesses and consumers across the globe facing the brunt of an unprecedented shortage in semiconductor microchips.
