iPhone 13 Pro shipments estimates slip to late October, iPad mini delayed even more
Apple launched its latest smartphones and tablets last week, and as usual, the demand for pre-orders is so great that deliveries for some variants of the iPhone 13 are slipping into the late days of October. If you decide to pre-order iPhone 13 Pro now, you will receive it in a month’s time, with October 22 being the earliest date.
Future owners of the new iPad mini are feeling even worse – Apple will start shipping some of the slate as late as November 5, and opting for the free engraving service will delay arrival by an extra 10 days.
Both iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max get slow delivery, regardless of color choice, memory options or transport services. By comparison, the dates for the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 are far more acceptable – 11. -13. October, which is less than three weeks. The situation with the iPhone 12 is even better – a phone can be reserved for pickup as early as Monday.
The situation is so bad not only in the US but consumers in other important markets like France, Germany and UK are also getting an iPhone 13 Pro no earlier than October 22nd.
