Apple recently launched its new iPad Pro models in the market in two screen sizes — 11-inch and 12.9-inch, both powered by the Apple Silicon M1 chipset. The 12.9-inch model also features a Mini-LED display.
The variant with the bigger screen is set to launch in the second half of this year but the orders place today on the company’s own online store in the United States are estimated to deliver as late as mid-July — about two months later, reports MacRumors.
However, this is not the case for the 11-inch model as some configurations of the tablet are available for delivery by the end of this month.
The reason behind delayed shipments of the Apple iPad Pro 2021 with a 12.9-inch display seems to the suppliers of the panel reportedly facing yield issues for the production. On top of that, the industry is also facing a global chip shortage and it seems that the issues could last into next year.
It’s likely that the iPad Pro is facing these issues given that the device was launched in April this year and the shipment estimates are for July this year, underscoring the supply chain and production issues faced by the company.
The same is the case with the new iMac 2021 as many configurations are showing shipments for mid-to-late June in the United States while the four-pack of Apple AirTag will be arriving in mid-June.
