(Reuters) -Apple Inc is expected to cut down production of the iPhone 13 serie by as many as 10 million units due to the global chip shortage, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.
Shares of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), which had projected to produce 90 million units of the new iPhone models by the end of this year, fell 1% to $140.08 in after-hours trading.
The company told its manufacturers that the number of units would be lower because the tech giant’s chip suppliers including Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) Inc and Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN) are struggling to deliver components, the Bloomberg report said. (https://
Apple, Broadcom and Texas Instruments did not immediately respond to Reuters’ requests for comment.
The global chip shortage, including shortage of components and raw materials like substrates, has surmounted immense pressure on industries from automobiles to electronics, leading many automakers to even temporarily suspend production.
