Apple Reportedly Takes iPad Parts To Fill In For iPhone 12 Pro Component Shortage

According to Nikkei Asia Review, iPhone 12 Pro demand is so high that Apple is facing a shortage of LiDAR components and power chips

According to Nikkei Asia Review, iPhone 12 Pro demand is so high that Apple is facing a shortage of LiDAR components and power chips. The former is vital for the phone as they are responsible for functions relating to depth-sensing.

To make up for the shortage, Apple is using iPad parts – a move that has affected around 2 million units in overall iPad production.

According to Bloomberg, the shortage issue isn’t unique to LiDAR components but also power chips, which is in charge of power management for 5G and camera functions on the iPhone 12 Pro.

Both 5G and the camera are power-hungry and with no power chips onboard, the phone will be rendered useless. Apple is reportedly making a plan for manufacturers to make up to 20 million iPhone SE, XR, and 11 to meet the demands of the holiday season.

Bloomberg's report also points out that iPhone SE, XR, and 11 made after October will not come with earphones or chargers. Explaining the decision, an executive of the company said it was a matter of priorities. iPhone 11 is still high in demand but the same isn’t true for the Pro and Pro Max models.

Shifting attention away from iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max will make it easier for Apple to focus on iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max.

Hardships with manufacturing are to be expected as the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t left us and it still cripples Apple factories in China. This has made production and manufacturing lagging behind.

To make matter worse, the tension between Washington and Beijing has shown no signs of easing. On top of that, the Cupertino tech giant also faces fierce competition from Huawei – its Chinese rival.

However, adversity isn’t something new to Apple as well as Tim Cook. They might as well conquer and thrive on it.
