iMac Shipping Delay: Is the 21.5 Inch Apple iMac Facing Production Issues?

Page 1 of 2

iMac Shipping Delay: Over the past couple of weeks, we have discussed shipping time issues surrounding many Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) products including the 27 inch iMac. While this issue was effecting those in the United States, it seems like production problems with the tech giant have gone overseas.

According to the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) UK website, shipping times for the 21.5 inch iMac have slipped to two to three weeks. While this may not sound like a big deal, it signifies once again that the company is having difficulties with production.

The following is a brief excerpt from AppleInsider, explaining the longer shipping time:

“New orders of Apple’s 21.5-inch desktop iMac are now advertised to ship in 2 to 3 weeks to U.K. customers, suggesting production problems remain for the all-in-one desktop.”

“Previously, new orders were scheduled to ship in 7 to 10 business days before the estimates slipped on Monday. However, Apple’s U.S. store continues to advertise shipping times of 7 to 10 days.”

“The larger 27-inch iMac is still advertised to ship in 3 to 4 weeks in both Apple’s U.S. and U.K. stores.”

As you can see, it is not just the 21.5 inch iMac that is running behind at the present time. The 27 inch model is having the same difficulties, as noted above.

“The new all-in-one desktop is said to have been met with production issues when it launched late last year. Those apparent problems have continued into 2013, as availability remains limited.”

For those who pay close attention to production and shipping times, this should not be that big of a surprise. As reported in the same AppleInsider article, analyst Ming-chi Kuo of KGI Securities warned of this a few months ago:
