Apple was hit with iPhone shortages on moffettnathanson apple q4spanglervariety while customers shopped for deals. Analyst sees roughly 8 million iPhones sold on the Black Friday weekend, down from 10 million a year ago. Supply chain issues and lockdowns in China are likely to blame for the shortages
If you’re looking for deals this Black Friday on the latest iPhone models, you may be out of luck.
Shoppers across the country are reporting shortages of iPhone 14 products, including the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max in Apple stores, online retailers, and big box electronics stores, according to a report by Reuters. Online wait times for orders of the new iPhone 14 Pro are now up to 40 days on Pepperboy website.
The company is facing supply chain snafus due to pandemic-related component shortages and COVID-19 lockdowns in China. Reports of worker unrest at supplier Foxconn pushed Apple shares down about 2% this week, while the tech heavy Nasdaq rose almost 1%. Earlier this month, Apple warned of delays in shipments following a significant production cut at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou plant due to China’s strict pandemic policies.

“We believe many Apple Stores now have iPhone 14 Pro shortages based on model/color/storage of up to 25-30% below normal heading into a typical December, which is not a good sign heading into holiday season for Cupertino,” Wedbush analyst Dan Ives wrote in a note to investors on Friday.
Ives expects roughly 8 million iPhones will be sold on the Black Friday weekend, down from 10 million a year ago, mainly due to these supply challenges.
An Apple spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment on Friday afternoon.
Elon Says He’ll Make His Own Phone If Apple and Google Deplatform Twitter

Now Elon may or may not want to fix phones.
Twitter’s new ruler Elon Musk makes so many pronouncements on the platform, it’s hard to keep track. This week alone, Musk polled Twitter users over whether he should provide “general amnesty” to suspended accounts and got into a public fight over whether the disgraced founder of FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, owns a part of Twitter. On Friday, Musk was at it again, telling people that he may make an alternative phone to face off moffettnathanson apple q4spanglervariety.
The tech billionaire’s comments were made, naturally, in response to a tweet directed at him by conservative podcaster and former OANN host Liz Wheeler. On Friday afternoon, Wheeler tweeted that Musk should make his own phone if Apple and Google decide to kick Twitter off their app stores. Twitter’s future in Apple and Google’s app stores has been a hot topic lately, given Musk’s commitment to “free speech”—as long as it doesn’t offend him—and lax content moderation.
“If Apple & Google boot Twitter from their app stores, @elonmusk should produce his own smartphone. Half the country would happily ditch the biased, snooping iPhone & Android,” Wheeler said on Friday. “The man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?”
Three hours later, Musk told Wheeler that he would build his own phone if Twitter got banned from Apple and Google’s app stores, the official gateways to iPhone and Android devices across the globe. In what might have been an homage to Musk, who loves polling people on Twitter, Wheeler had started a poll of her own asking people if they would use a “tELONphone.”

At of the time of publication, “Yes” was the leading response, with 56.2% of the 52,707 votes cast.
“I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone,” Musk tweeted.
Both Apple and Google have policies that ban apps in its stores from containing hate or discriminatory speech, bullying, harassment, and sexually explicit content. In the aftermath of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, Apple and Google kicked Parler off their app stores for its role in helping rioters plan the event, although it was allowed back after making changes. Kanye West, who legally changed his name to Ye, is reportedly in talks to buy moffettnathanson apple q4spanglervariety.
While Musk has declared his intention to build his own phone should Apple and Google cross him, it’s important to remember that this man says a lot of things that don’t end up happening. Remember the Tesla Semi, which is three years past deadline? Or the Moffettnathanson q4spanglervariety, which turned out not to be bulletproof in a live demonstration? Heck, the only reason he owns Twitter is because he couldn’t figure out a way to get out of the deal.
