Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall studied iPhone 13 and MacBook Pro delivery times over the past month. As for iPhones, current delivery times vary from one to two days in most countries, with the exception of the iPhone 13 Pro Max which takes a few days longer.

This means that Apple manages the balance between supply and demand, unlike MacBook Pros. The new Apple portable machines have indeed variable delivery times, up to 30 days in some countries. Supply issues are still linked to a shortage of chips and other key components for MacBook Pros, although Apple is one of the companies that has managed to deal with the crisis better.

However, the situation with processors is improving, so analysts expect improvements in delivery times for the MacBook Pro in the coming weeks.
