Delivery estimates for Apple’s iPhone 13 funding remains high but has stabilized after tapering slightly a week ago, which analysts say shows good demand for the current generation of devices.
In its eighth week of monitoring the iPhone 13 series, a note from JP Morgan analyst Sam Chatterjee seen by AppleInsider notes that delivery times for iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max have stabilized on average in multiple monitored regions.
According to the note, the delays for the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 are 12 days and 13 days respectively, while both the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max have delivery times of 32 days. The periods remain static from the same ratio a week earlier.
Times are said to be still “high compared to iPhone 12 series, “with robust lead times indicating” health demand for the iPhone 13 series. “This despite the lack of visibility into iPhone supply, although it also represents” limited indications of any new supply chain disruptions. “
For the US, delivery times are slightly better than average, at 11 days for the iPhone 13 and mini, 28 days for the Pro models, although this is the same as observed a week earlier. Same-day pickup continues to be available for non-Pro models, while Pros are still largely unavailable for that option.
The situation is identical in terms of delivery times, although the Pro Max has seen improvements from 30 days to 28 days, equal to the United States, with in-store pickup with the same limitations. However, while quite similar, the United States is by far the larger market of the two, accounting for 35% of iPhone shipments while Germany accounts for 5%.
The UK also takes up only 5% of shipments, but with slightly better shipping times for the 25-day Pro models. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 remain at 11 days, and again they are the only two models available for same-day in-store pickup.
China is the worst of the four regions monitored, with iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 at 15 days and 19 days. The Pro models are still unchanged for 45 days, as is the in-store pickup situation, as non-Pro models can still be picked up from stores, but not the Pro versions.
The iPhone 13 lineup is estimated to continue to be “well ahead on all models” of the iPhone 12 generation, writes Chatterjee. However, this can be “driven by supply constraints”.
While serving as an indicator of the balance between consumer demand and supply chain manufacturing, it doesn’t give a real picture of just how popular the iPhone 13 range actually is. The only entity that truly knows that value is Apple itself. .
