According to a new paywalled DigiTimes report, Apple's component shortages are beginning to ease as production increases. That, in turn, also means that Apple is able to have iPhone 13 handsets built more speedily.

Apple's iPhone 13 is the best iPhone yet, but it's also one of the more difficult ones to get hold of. Seemingly high demand, coupled with production issues related to an ongoing global shortage of parts, has left shelves bare. It isn't a problem that has only afflicted iPhones, either. The new Apple Watch Series 7 is also suffered from production delays, while the latest iPad and Mac refreshes haven't been immune, either.
