Apple cut the production of iPads to increase the supply of iPhones.
According to Nikkei Asia, Apple has cut iPad production by 50 percent to ensure enough parts to produce the iPhone 13.
Thus, the company wants to increase the supply of the iPhone 13, which is bought much more often than the iPad.
Customers will probably have to wait longer for the iPad. For example, the iPad mini will not be delivered until four to five weeks when ordered on Apple’s website.
Earlier, Apple reported not receiving $6 billion in the fourth fiscal quarter due to a chips shortage.
