We revealed earlier this month that new MacBook Pro orders, as well as existing ones from February, were being delayed into July. As supply challenges persist, the MacBook Pro and other items, including the iMac, Mac Studio, and Studio Display, will be delayed until August.
Their orders had already been delayed, but Apple informed them that their laptops would not arrive until late June or early July.
We started hearing more about it, and even the basic 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro versions were delayed until mid-July.
MacBook Pro delayed to August for new orders
It’s been a couple of weeks, and the supply problems are still present. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro computers will arrive on July 28. If you update any component, such as the M1 Pro/Max processor, RAM, or storage, the shipment time will be extended to August 8.
Surprisingly, Apple’s direct availability is the worst. Various vendors, including Amazon, Adorama, B&H Photo, and Best Buy, now have stock of various MacBook Pro configurations.
Apple’s Mac Studio and Studio Display and the new MacBook Pro will begin delivering in August. The iMac is available now in standard configurations, but if you improve the RAM or storage, the desktop will be delayed until August.
The 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro is available immediately, while the M1 MacBook Air is available in stock within a week or so. However, upgrading RAM or storage might cause the delivery to be delayed by up to a month.
