It seems that the company Quanta Computers, the main hardware manufacturer for Apple, continues to feel the consequences of the restrictions due to Covid-19 in China since they have not managed to recover previous levels, which is being noticed in the availability of MacBook Pros. 14 and 16 inches.
While little by little the countries and their economy try to recover pre-pandemic levels, there are some that cannot fully start due to the new outbreaks of Covid-19 that are emerging. Specific, China is one of the countries that is suffering the most and being one of the main exporters of products in the world, this It also has consequences on the rest of the planet.
Among the many companies that are suffering from this slow recovery of the Chinese economy, Apple is having trouble meeting the demand of all its users, specifically for the 14-inch and 16-inch versions of the MacBook Pro.
According to Taiwan media DigiTimesQuanta is the main manufacturer of Apple Macbooks and as they explain in their post “On April 30, Quanta’s vice president, CC Leung, indicated that the Shanghai plant has recovered around 30% of its capacity and that it plans to increase the percentage to 50% gradually.”
Meaning that even though sanitary measures have calmed down, production is still recovering, so there is a long way to go to reach the manufacturing levels of before.
This can be seen in a very clear way just by entering the Apple website and going to the MacBook Pro section. While you could receive a 13-inch MacBook Pro in just 2 hours if you pick it up in store, at try both the 14-inch and 16-inch versions estimated delivery is between June 29 and July 13and it may take more than two months to arrive if you order it today.
