Delivery estimates for Apple’s iPhone 13 collection remain high, but have leveled off after narrowing slightly a week ago, which analysts believe demonstrates healthy demand for the current generation of devices.

In its eighth week of follow-up to the iPhone 13 series, a note from JP Morgan analyst Sam Chatterjee viewed by AppleInsider note that delivery times for the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max have stabilized on average across multiple tracked regions.

According to the note, the delays for the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 are 12 and 13 days respectively, while both the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max have delivery times of 32 days. The periods remain static from the same report one week before.

Times are said to remain “high relative to iPhone 12 series”, and robust delivery times point to “health demand for iPhone 13 series”. This is despite the lack of visibility into the iPhone supply, although it also explains “limited indications of further disruptions in the supply chain.”

For the United States, delivery times are slightly better than average, at 11 days for the iPhone 13 and mini, 28 days for the Pro models, although it is the same as the one observed a week earlier. Same day pickup remains available for non-Pro models, while Pro models remain largely unavailable for that option.

The situation is identical in terms of delivery times, although the Pro Max experienced improvements from 30 days to 28 days, matching those in the United States, with in-store pickup with the same limitations. However, while it is quite similar, the United States is by far the larger market of the two, accounting for 35% of iPhone shipments, while Germany accounts for 5%.

The UK also takes up just 5% of shipments, but with slightly better shipping times for Pro models at 25 days. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 stay for 11 days, and again they’re the only two models available for same-day store pickup.

China is the worst of the four regions being tracked, with the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 at 15 and 19 days. Pro models remain unchanged from 45 days, as is the store pickup situation, as non-Pro models can still be picked up from stores, but Pro versions cannot.

The iPhone 13 range is estimated to remain “way ahead on all models” than the iPhone 12 generation, Chatterjee writes. However, this may be “driven by supply constraints”.

While it serves as an indicator of the balance between consumer demand and supply chain production, it does not provide a true picture of how popular the iPhone 13 range really is. The only entity that really knows that value is itself. Manzana.
