Tom merritt talk about the upcoming shortage of everything that side the lots of ripples in the supply chain shipping concerns orders various components a lack of workers and of course the dreaded virus honestly. It's less like ripples and more like when you throw a rock into a pond than throw another rock than the ripples from both of those rocks kind of collide more oxen upon today among them a power shortage in china apple. Insider highlights are reuters report. That says a number of companies including some apple supply chain have had the halt production to comply with power consumption regulations. Those regulations deliver sort of one two punch tied to reducing emissions and tightened coal supplies. What does this mean for apple. According to the report not all apple suppliers in china have yet been affected and some of those which have have instead limited their operations for other companies. Instead however manufacturers of iphone components ranging from motherboards speakers have been forced to hold work for several days makes one wonder how slow the watch will be running among many many other things to wonder while foxconn has been affected. The apple insider piece indicates that that particular partner is shifting the head two other companies for which it works. Secret so-and-so say foxconn seen only a very small impact that seemingly been confined the non apple production to with the company adjusting staff shifts to move work to october another piece on the reuters report from apple.

Highlighting expectations from t.f. International analysts mingji quo that had the analyst calling for a reduction in macbook shipments for the first half of next year. He sees apples. Orders dropping by fifteen percent for a few reasons one component shortages to structural demand change in the post kobe nineteen era and three product transition between legacy and new models post couvert nineteen era say. Macrumors reads that as decline in working from home demand though first half of next year. We'll mark two years since the start of the great hunker down is it that people won't be working from home or that they will have already upgraded angels on the head of a pin. I know the piece also expresses concern over individual purchasing power falling due to inflation again. It is unclear whether that's mingji quos read or macrumors. Lewis does expect. The new mac book air based on updated apple silicon hit production early in the second half of next year. Does that really mean a year. And a half without a new mac book macrumors thinks not according to the site apple is still expected.
