The delayed announcement and staggered release may have been a result of the pandemic, but Apple isn't out of the woods just yet, with news that shortages for the flagship are on the way this holiday season. So if you want to get yourself a new iPhone, you need to order sooner rather than later.

Bloomberg reports that suppliers are seeing an increased demand as manufacturers stockpile components to ensure they don't run dry. 5G devices are particularly problematic as the additional power consumptions calls for more chips than would otherwise be required in 4G devices.
Bloomberg's sources have suggested that suppliers are likely to prioritise Apple and its iPhone 12 handsets over other customers, but demand is still high enough that the tech giant isn't out of the woods yet.
So if you were looking forward to nabbing yourself the new iPhone 12 Mini, or the ultra premium Pro Max, it's worth pre-ordering as soon as possible so that you don't miss out.
