New Apple MacBooks and iPads could get delayed due to chip shortages



Apple MacBooks and iPads are apparently set to become the latest victim of component shortages (sparked by the global pandemic) which are hitting home pretty much across the whole tech industry (albeit being particularly keenly felt in some areas, like graphics cards).

According to a Nikkei Asia report, when it comes to MacBooks, the assembly lines have had a spanner thrown in the works in one of the vital stages of the production process where components are mounted on printed circuit boards. That step is being delayed thanks to chip shortages, with Nikkei Asia going into more specifics than the usual sort of claims we see (although that said, we should obviously not take any rumor at, or even near, face value).
