About 12 weeks after the arrival on the market, the demand for Apple’s iPhone 13 range is still very high in the face of an offer that is not being able to keep up with it indeed, compared to previous surveys, delivery times are increasing as we approach the Christmas holidays. According to what was reported by the investment bank JP Morgan in a note to investors, delivery times for the iPhone 13 range have increased for all models, on the Pro and Pro Max versions in particular.
Over the past week, the 11th availability of iPhone, delivery times for iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max had averaged 2 days for non-Pro models and 16 days for Pros. In this week, the 12th, for the non-Pro it takes 5 days that rise to 18 for the Pro models.
In Italy we are about 16 days of waiting for the Pro models while iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are available immediately for collection in the store but it takes three days in case of shipment.
With regard to all the regions monitored by JP Morgan, the United States is the only one that has not seen a change in delivery times that has been recorded mainly in China, the United Kingdom and Germany. For the Chinese, waiting times have gone from 0 to 7 days for non-Pro models and from 22 to 24 days for Pro models.
At the end of November, China observed a remarkable recovery in iPhone demand driven in part by a general increase in international smartphone shipments from an average of 6.1 million to 10.8 million.
According to JP Morgan, this overall lengthening of delivery times “indicates that demand continues to remain high and robust, while improving supply helps keep delivery times under control.” JPM also expects the combination of “strong demand” and reduced inventory to provide Apple with higher-than-expected revenue in future quarterly results.
