Sina Digital News ON the morning of February 13, foreign media reported that many users of custom-configured iMac, iMac Pro and MacBook Pro delivery in the US Apple online store is expected to be longer than usual.

The reason for the longer delivery times has not been confirmed, but it is likely related to the outbreak, which forced many Apple suppliers to temporarily close factories and suspend production. Initial production appeared to be limited when some factories began to resume operations.

Now, delivery times for the new Mac Pro have also been affected. For example, in many European countries, the current delivery time of customized models is after March 10. Orders for the new Mac Pro in the Americas are assembled in the United States, but European orders are assembled in China.

Despite assembling the new Mac Pro in Texas, U.S. deliveries have also been delayed to Feb. 24-26, likely because some components are still coming from suppliers in China that have temporarily shut down.

The current situation of the epidemic is still unstable, and it is unknown whether it will affect other Apple product releases. Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo last month also looked ahead to new products that Apple will release in the first half of 2020, including the new MacBook Pro and Air, iPad Pro with triple rear cameras, Tile anti-lost tracker, high-end wireless earphones, and small wireless charging.
