According to U.S. media reports, the entire technology industry is facing a shortage of new products began to affect Apple's iPhone 13 series.
Apple's share price has also been hit by reports that it expects to cut up to 10 million iPhone 13s.
The news caused some analysts to worry about the performance of the iPhone 13 and Apple's ability to keep up with demand, sending Apple's stock down, but now the company's suppliers are fighting back.
Apple's new iPhone parts supplier says it hasn't cut orders so far this year, according to a response from apple upstream suppliers.
As things stand, however, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max now have to wait weeks or even up to a month for delivery dates to be placed. The Apple Watch Series 7, which went on sale on Friday, also ran into delays, with some high-end models not expected to ship until early December.
Apple's suppliers are "scrambling" to keep up with production because of problems with energy supplies that are affecting productivity, a report said last week.
