The availability of a number of Apple products has been hit by the coronavirus outbreak, Bloomberg News reported. Products affected include the iPad Pro, AirPods Pro, and customized Macs.

The iPad Pro tablet is seeing limited availability at stores in major cities in the U.S., Australia and Europe, according to a review of Apple’s website on Monday. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro with 512 gigabytes of storage and no cellular connectivity is sold out at all Apple stores in the Los Angeles area. That model and other versions are sold out at many stores in New York City as well… AirPods Pro earbuds and built-to-order Mac computers are also continuing to show shipping delays, and some Apple Watch Series 3 and Series 5 models are listed as unavailable to buy online. The Watch Series 3 and in-demand AirPods Pro had been constrained even before the coronavirus. The latest iPhones and Apple’s non-Pro iPads are still widely available in the U.S., though some locations in Europe and Australia are showing the iPhone 11 as unavailable.

    Charlotte:

    It will be interesting to see if Apple, later this month at their event, provide any guidance on product availability, notably for the anticipated rollout of new iPad’s Pro, the (new?) AirPods, the anticipated iPhones and the like.

    Even if no new hardware products are announced, a status report on product availability for the current line of products would be useful.

    Managing expectations is always a good move for containing morale amongst the troops and mitigating crankiness and rebellion.
