Some custom-configured MacBook Pro M2 models delayed until August Listen to this article

Apple started accepting orders for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip this morning, and like many other Macs, this new machine is facing some shipping delays.

Some custom configurations of the MacBook Pro M2 with upgraded unified memory have been backordered and will not be available for delivery until August. Delivery dates for all 13-inch MacBook Pro models with select 24GB Unified Memory upgrades in the United States are August 3-10.

Stock MacBook Pro models are available for delivery on launch day, which is Friday, June 24, but other memory and SSD upgrades push deliveries until at least July.

It’s not surprising to see shipping delays for the 13-inch MacBook Pro as Apple struggles with Mac supply shortages for most of the year. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, even standard configurations, don’t reach customers until mid-August in some cases.

Apple has said that these supply issues can be attributed to the ongoing component shortage and manufacturing issues due to the global pandemic.

During an April earnings call, Apple CFO Luca Maestri said Apple expects continued supply issues to impact product sales in the fiscal third quarter of 2022. Apple struggled to keep up with demand in the second quarter and expects these problems to get worse later in the year.

The supply restrictions are expected to cost Apple between $4 billion and $8 billion and will affect many of Apple’s product categories.

Apple hasn’t announced a release date for the MacBook Air 2M2 yet, but given the Mac delays we’ve seen throughout 2022, supply shortages are to be expected.
