The world is still dealing with a massive chip shortage that impacts various industries, including consumer electronics and automotive. It might be car makers that complained the most about the inability to manufacture more vehicles because of the shortage, but several electronic device makers feel the same pressure. Samsung confirmed a few weeks ago that the silicon shortage would impact its smartphone business, saying that it’s taking steps to mitigate the issue. The Galaxy Note 21 cancelation was reportedly on the table, although Samsung might have discontinued the Note line even without a components crisis.
At the time, reports said that Apple’s operations remain largely unaffected thanks to the iPhone maker’s proven ability to manage the complex supply chain and plan its moves accordingly to ensure enough parts supply for its core products. But a new report claims that two Apple products are now directly impacted by the chip shortage, including the iPad and MacBook.
