(Bloomberg) — Apple Inc.’s iPhone 14 Pro models are taking longer to deliver than ever as the company’s key assembly plant in China’s Zhengzhou weathers Covid lockdowns and worker unrest.

Customers buying Apple’s most premium devices in the U.S. this year can now expect to wait as long as 37 days, according to Counterpoint Research, which monitors delivery times every year. That’s far higher than the predecessor iPhone 13 Pro family and longer than the initial launch of the current generation. Delivery days are “increasing significantly” for iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models across all markets, Counterpoint analysts said.
