Basically, the deficit affected small, peripheral, components. It is noted that the deficit affects primarily the production of the iPhone 13 line. In smartphones of the older version – iPhone 13 Pro Max – there are about 2 thousand small components.
And if some parts are missing, despite the fact that 99% of the rest can be ready, it is impossible to assemble the device.
In addition to Apple, tech giants such as Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, Sony Group and Nintendo, as well as home appliance manufacturers Dyson and LG, faced a shortage of components.
