Global chip shortages to hit iPhone 12 production

09 February 2021
The rest of the OEMs will likely get affected too.

Sort by:

I wish this went into more detail about how their supply was hit. Don't they have like 80% (random guess) of TSMC's N5 capacity?
Is demand just outstripping supply again? Is it the substrate shortage? Is it the T2 chips?
Is there some conspiracy about all of TSMC's manufacturing slowing to a crawl and paying clients hush money?

It has bit over 2200mAh.
That is almost 25% more than iphones 6/6s/7/8/SE.
All them sold way more.

Lift the ban imposed on SMIC and there would be no problem. Oh, yes, it would mean that China again saves the world. That can't happen!
