Apple is Already Facing Supply Chain Disruptions with the iPhone7

Posted by Nadeesha Thewarapperuma

     This isn't the first time Apple has been unable to cope with the rising demand for their newest product. Back in April 2015 - when the iWatch first came out - Apple was already facing some supply chain issues. The pre-order time frame was just fourteen days, and as the orders kept piling up, the delivery date kept being pushed further and further back.

     Pre-orders for the iPhone7 now have an estimated delivery date of late October, even if the phone is due out on September 16. Pre-orders for the more popular colors - like the new jet black iPhone7 - have been pushed back to November. 

     Industry analysts believe supply chain disruptions are the root cause behind the delays. The essentials that make up the iPhone, including the screen, the case, and the electronic components that all go into it are in short supply.

An Electronic Component Shortage will mean a Back Ordered Apple iWatch

     As part of September's 'Wish We Could Say More' event, Apple announced the iWatch is in the works and that a release date would soon be announced. Fast forward a couple of months, and now we know that the watch is slated to be released on 04/24/2015 with pre-orders due to open up on the 10th.

     To drive-up hype surrounding the Watch, Apple has been careful to release limited information about the new product. At this point, we know very little about the electronic components and hardware that make up the model.

     There are major drawbacks which accompany the launch of a new product line. With a pre-order period of only 14 days, it won't be easy to gauge consumer demand for the Apple iWatch, but based on the demand for counterfeit watches, International Business Times (IB Times) has already predicted that demand will be high. IB Times has seen counterfeits pop-up on Taobao - a site similar to Ebay - and all selling for well below the retail price of $349 and cheekily named AiWatch, UWatch or DWatch. Some are reportedly retailing for around $30, matching the Apple Watch's appearance and design but lacking in functionality.
