Amid the ongoing global chip shortage, Apple has decided to cut iPad production in half and use a limited number of components for the iPhone 13 models.

According to Nikkei Asia’s report, Apple has “sharply” reduced iPad production to provide enough components for the iPhone 13 series, which it hopes will increase the supply of smartphones that are in greater demand than tablets.

In September-October, iPad production decreased by 50% compared to planned, affecting older iPhone models, the report said. Most of its components will be used in the production of the iPhone 13 series, which has been introduced in recent months. Analysts say the global chip shortage will continue until 2022.

Let’s just say that the lack of supply in Apple products is associated with the consequences of the pandemic and the global semiconductor crisis caused by disrupted supply chains due to COVID-19. During the discussion of the latest financial reports, company CEO Tim Cook announced that the company had lost $ 6 billion in revenue due to these problems.
