Coronavirus continues to make all headlines, no matter what type of news it is that today we will find something related to the Coronavirus. A pandemic that continues to cancel events, and change our lives a bit. Yesterday I was talking about the predictions of some analysts for the launch of the next iPhone 12, and today the news is not so optimistic: Apple would be warning its distributors of an increase in waiting times to get a device replacement. After the jump we give you all the details of this new news related to the Coronavirus.
It has been published by the Bloomberg guys, and these replacements are from devices that are very damaged and therefore need to be replaced by a new repaired iPhone. A time that was quite short but now from Apple they say it can reach 2 – 4 weeks. For them Apple would be sending mails to users who need replacements through distributors to offer them the possibility of receiving them directly at home through Apple. They don’t say why this delay is really, but the truth is that since Bloomberg they have been able to verify that these problems are due to supply delays due to the impact Coronavirus is having in the entire technology market.
And the truth is that technology companies that work for Apple as Foxconn and Pegatron, closed two or more weeks when the global alert was launched but it seems that they are already working again. Companies that are necessary for the Apple assembly line … We will see what happens with all this, in the official Apple Store it seems that they also have shortages of some parts due to these supply problems … And you, have you encountered this problem?
