With Apple’s release of the iPhone 14 this year, it’s on many people’s Christmas lists. I mean, who wouldn’t want the latest and greatest phone to replace the current model?
If you were planning to buy yourself or someone else one of these phones before the end of the year, you may want to reconsider. Due to COVID-19 restrictions in China, these The major factories responsible for making mobile phones are operating at much lower capacity than usual. This means that phones are being manufactured less and harder to come by.
Unfortunately I had to upgrade my phone and the iPhone 14 was what I was most interested in. I was so excited to finally get my hands on the upgrade.
I went to Best Buy to see the different models in person to see which one I wanted to use. He told me that I needed to act quickly. Apparently, there were only a few iPhone 14 and 14 Plus in stock, but if you wanted a color you didn’t see in stores, or wanted the 14 Pro or 14 Pro Max, you had to order and wait until mid-January. . It’s going to be about the same timeframe as ordering directly from Apple.
I knew they didn’t have the phone I wanted in store, so I called my carrier to see what they currently had in stock here at Lubbock. I got a reply saying, but the order didn’t come until the end of January.
Frustrated and not wanting to wait more than a month to get the phone I needed, I looked online. Luckily, I was able to order the desired model through my carrier. Hopefully it should arrive in about a week.
So if you’ve been waiting this long to receive a new phone as a Christmas present, you probably won’t make it in time. But if you’re a hunter like me and you’re lucky, you might catch it just in time.
