The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, for example, continue to list weeks or even as long as a month for delivery dates. The Apple Watch Series 7, going on sale this Friday, is also experiencing delays in shipments, with some high-end models leading into early December. A report last week said that Apple’s suppliers are “scrambling” to keep up with production due to new energy regulations in China impacting efficiency.
