MacBook Pro 2021: order it on the Apple Store, receive it in early August!

If there is one Apple product that has been closely watched by analysts and investors for the past few months, it is the latest generation of MacBook Pros. With the Chinese government’s “zero Covid” policy and the shortage of certain components, Apple is having difficulty producing the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, which is causing delivery times never seen before on the online Apple Store!

A lot of patience

If you’re planning on buying one of the latest 14-inch or 16-inch MacBook Pros, you’re going to have to be patient, as delivery and pick-up times at Apple Stores have become uncontrollable. Whether in the United States, France or the rest of the world, MacBook Pros with a notch display amazing delivery times.
Here is the current situation on the Apple Online Store FR:

  • 14-inch MacBook Pro (all configurations): delivery between July 21 and August 4, 2022.
    Withdrawal from Apple Store: Thursday, August 4, 2022.
  • 16-inch MacBook Pro (all configurations): delivery between July 21 and August 4, 2022.
    Withdrawal from Apple Store: Thursday, August 4, 2022.

The only MacBook Pro that manages to get away with delays reasonable, it is the 13 inch model with the M1 chip. The model marketed at €1,449 announces delivery and collection from the Apple Store for next Thursdaythe €1,679 model shows delivery for the June 2 with a possible withdrawal for tomorrow. As you will have understood, demand is clearly lower for this model of MacBook Pro!

Less than a month ago, a Digitimes report told us that the supplier Quanta in China gradually resumed its usual production rate, however there have been so many orders backlogged that Apple is trying to catch up.

The problem that arises today is that the Californian giant has chosen a rather surprising strategy for the latest MacBook Pro 2021: that of betting everything on Quanta which is currently the sole assembler of 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros. Why this approach? Probably because other partners failed to meet production quality requirements.

Since the beginning of May, Apple has changed its mode of transport from China to Europe and the United States. The company now favors the air Transport rather than shipping, it costs a lot more, but orders get to their destination faster. Given the current situation on the French and American online Apple Store, it is a logical decision.
