iPhone 15 Pro orders: Worldwide Apple users appear to have been pleased with the iPhone 15 Series. Today, the firm began taking pre-orders for the iPhone 15 Series, and there is already a significant desire for the new iPhones. Beginning on September 22, Apple will begin shipping its products.
The huge demand for the iPhone 15 Pro has caused Apple to postpone the shipments for up to two months. Customers who pre-booked the iPhone 15 Pro from all around the world are claiming a delivery delay of at least 6 to 8 weeks.
iPhone 15 Pro Orders are delayed globally by up to 8 weeks
Since Apple opened pre-orders for the iPhone 15 Series, not a single day has passed. The demand for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max looks to have exceeded Apple’s expectations in this brief period.
Due to the widespread reports of orders for the iPhone 15 Pro not being delivered on time, Apple fans have taken the internet by storm. The delivery dates for this year’s pre-ordered Pro model iPhones reach as far as November.
According to Mark Gurman, orders for the iPhone 15 Pro Max have experienced delays of up to 8 weeks in India, China, the UK, and Canada. Both in-store and home delivery of the new iPhones are subject to the delay.
Even ordinary orders for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are experiencing delays of up to two weeks in some areas. It appears that Apple’s improvements to the iPhone 15 Series have drawn many consumers to the new model. Although the price of the iPhone 15 Pro is 60% higher in India, the higher-end model is still in strong demand there.
Delivery times growing for 15 Pro Max:
– 8 week delays in India
– 6-7 week delays in China
– 7-8 week delays in the UK
– 6-7 week delays in Canada https://t.co/dkMRpp6Wtw

iPhone 15 Pro Manufacturing for Apple is challenging because of the titanium frame and the 3nm processor
In the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max, Apple employed a titanium frame. The iPhone’s metallic frame is colored by the firm through anodization. However because it needs a very regulated environment, anodizing titanium is very challenging.
According to Counterpoint Research, Apple currently produces all of its Pro models in China. Because of this, the firm is unable to increase the production of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone Pro Max from any other source. However, Apple has plants in Vietnam and India that help to increase production for standard models when demand starts to increase.
The iPhone 15 Pro’s chip posed yet another manufacturing challenge. Based on a 3nm architecture, the A17 Pro in the iPhone 15 Pro. For the manufacturing of this chip, only TSMC is trusted by Apple. Yet, due to its complexity, TSMC can only produce 3nm processors with a 55% yield.
Moreover, Apple has purchased all of TSMC’s 3nm manufacturing production slots through December 2023. Apple cannot produce the A17 Pro any quicker as a result. The shipment of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max orders will therefore be delayed for a while.
