Apple's MacBook Pro supplier's Shanghai factory has resumed production

After the lifting of the lockdown in Shanghai, Apple supplier Quanta is gradually resuming MacBook production at its Chinese factories.

According to supply chain sources, order pull at the production facility is slowly getting stronger, which is expected to increase MacBook Pro production and shorten the lead time for orders.

Due to Apple's supply problems, some users who ordered MacBook Pros in March and April experienced delivery delays. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Quanta is the sole supplier of MacBook Pros, and its delivery time has increased by three to five weeks since the closure of Shanghai. Currently, some MacBook Pro configurations won't ship until late June to early July.

Although MacBook Pro production is gradually resuming, supply issues are expected to affect product sales in the third quarter of 2022. Apple said last week that lockdowns and chip shortages in China will continue to impact production capacity, which will ultimately impact Apple's third-quarter revenue.
