What you need to know
- Apple CFO Luca Maestri says supply constraints will impact the iPhone and iPad in the September quarter.
- Tim Cook declined to speculate if the issue could extend into the December quarter.
Apple says that the supply constraints the technology industry is experiencing could primarily affect the iPhone and iPad in the September quarter.
While talking about what Apple expects for its September quarter during the Q3 earnings call, Apple CFO Luca Maestri revealed that the company expects supply constraints to worsen and have a potentially material impact on iPhone and iPad production.
When asked if the supply constraints will extend into the December quarter, Apple CEO Tim Cook declined to speculate that far ahead.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 13 lineup in September so, hopefully, the supply constraints the company currently expects do not create an issue for all of those anticipating customers of the new phones.
Earlier today, Apple hosted its Q3 earnings call and announced a June quarter revenue record of $81.4 billion, an increase of nearly $22 billion or 36 percent from a just year ago. If you want to learn more about what was said during the earnings call, check out the call transcript.
