iPhone 11 Models Seeing Shortages in NYC

The supply of iPhone 11 models in New York City is dwindling, according to a report from the New York Post. The constrained supply is likely due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19.

Wireless retailers, in particular, are either out of stock or are facing low numbers of ‌iPhone‌ 11 and ‌iPhone‌ 11 Pro models. According to the report, many retail employees believe the cause of the shortage is due to "low stock and infrequent shipments, with little guidance as to when things might get back to normal."

According to an AT&T employee, ‌iPhone‌ inventory is low because carriers are storing the devices in warehouses instead of in retail stores. This could be an effort to control the supply chain in case of any major device shortages. The employee added, however, that customers could arrange a two-day delivery on devices requested in store.

The effects of COVID-19 are being felt across the globe. Amid coronavirus concerns this week, SXSW 2020 has been canceled and Apple has encouraged its employees in Silicon Valley to work from home.

There have been posts that say Apple is too dependent on China. It seems much of the the world is dependent on China.

I think governments and businesses are right now rethinking their business strategy and dependence on China. Just don’t expect an overnight change, but we can certainly see things turning around by the end of the decade or next 15 years. Ultimately, this diversity will be important since it removes all countries reliance on China, provide economic resilience, equality and opportunities globally. Too much eggs in one basket is what led us here. The negative impacts outside of this virus is seen everyday by the Chinese buying up apartments in coastal cities as ‘plan b’ strategies in first world countries and not even living in them making it harder for locals to even live where they work. Now with this epidemic spreading across the world, what are they gonna do? It’s not like you can run away from the virus if everything falls apart in your country due to virus itself causing your government to fall apart.

I was talking to some friends today about this and in some ways, the economic slow down from the virus is likely needed to happen to put things into perspective. (I don’t like it because it’s hurting my investments). But maybe this will mean things will lead to a society where everyone is not just thinking about themselves for a change and not trying to squeeze your pocket so hard.

Here in school, my order of badges to reward students who use our online learning platform has been delayed because the supplier sources them from China. [emoji12]

This just goes to show how much of our supply chain is so heavily dependent on China.

Who buys an iPhone mid-cycle? It’s not even a holiday or whatever
People whose contract or subsidy is up and are eligible for an upgrade? People whose phone just died? Not everyone has to have the latest model.

But of course. Everything is Apple’s fault. [emoji6]

Why should it?

People seem to forget that investing in China was what allowed Apple to grow to be so large in the first place, for the simple reason that no other country seems to have the capability to churn out 200+ million iPhones every year.

Once in a while, you get a hiccup like this, which should eventually blow over, but by and large, Apple can simply absorb the loss and still come out ahead overall.
