In China, the coronavirus epidemic appears to be almost completely vanquished, to the point that all factories have resumed normal operations. For Apple, this translates into greater availability of iPhones and AirPods after the difficulties of the past few weeks.
As confirmed by Loop Ventures, Apple has resolved all issues with the supply of two fundamental products for its business. All of this can also be seen on Apple’s online store, where delivery times have dropped significantly in recent days.
In the 16 countries monitored, iPhone delivery times increased from 7 days on March 4 to just 2 days today. Even for the AirPods, the delays increased from an average of 10 days to only 7 days.
We believe that most of the shorter delivery times are due to the restart of production in China, and only to a lesser extent a lower demand from users worldwide. , writes Gene Munster, analyst at Loop Ventures.
Delivery time improvements are based on tracking the 64GB iPhone 11, 64GB iPhone 11 Pro, AirPods Pro and AirPod 2 in 13 countries.
