IF you're hoping to buy an iPhone or an iPad as a Christmas present then you'd better hurry up, experts have warned.
Reports suggest the devices could take around two weeks to arrive and supply chain issues could affect stock levels.
According to a new Bloomberg report, orders for "the iPhone 13, iPad mini, ninth-generation iPad, Apple Watch Series 7 and MacBook Pro" may not arrive until November or December.
It also claims older devices like the iMac and Mac Pro are facing delays.
Apple customers in the UK are facing delays of over a month to receive the latest iPhones due to a shortage of key components.
If you try and order one of the new iPhone's from Apple's UK website you could be waiting until November 29 for it to arrive.
The same kind of waiting time is revealed on Apple's US website.
Stock is in short supply as part shortages and rising costs hit businesses worldwide.
Apple released four new iPhones on September 24, drawing excited crowds to its stores across the globe.
The iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max start at £779/$799, rising all the way to £1,549/$1,599 for the top model.
It's thought the tech giant may have to cut its iPhone 13 production by up to 10 million devices due to global supply chain issues.
This even led to a White House spokesperson telling Reuters that “there will be things that people can’t get” this Christmas.
