You may want to preorder the iPhone 7 way in advance, as a new report claims the upcoming iPhone's launch may be hindered by short supply.
Apple is reportedly undergoing a shortage of materials following a batch of faulty components, an industry source told Japan's Nikkei Asian Review.
The source adds that if Apple sticks to its typical fall release window, initial demand for the newest iPhone might potentially go unmet.
This isn't the first time an iPhone has been confronted with launch issues.
Both of those devices wound up with slight hiccups fulfilling preorders on Day One, but thankfully never got close to "Nintendo Wii in 2006" levels of scarcity/chaos. So, unless you're the absolute earliest of early adopters, you probably shouldn't fret over whether you'll have a shiny new iPhone in time for this holiday.
