New shipments quench iPhone thirst in Vietnam

Apple has shipped more iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max phones to Vietnam, easing a supply shortage that lasted about a month. Local distributors said they received mid-week shipments of the iPhone 14, the latest model many Vietnamese consumers have been waiting for.

Phung Phiong, a spokesman for Mobile Vietnam, said the last shipment was enough to deliver to customers who pre-ordered the phone more than a month after its release.

The next batch of iPhone 14 models is expected to arrive in Vietnam in early January 2023, during the peak shopping season due to Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday.

Nguyen Tha Kha, director of mobile telecommunications at FPT Shop, said it would be difficult to predict the price of new supplies amid constant fluctuations in exchange rates and the supply chain.

Retail prices for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are in the range of VND 28.9-32.5 million ($1,165-$1,310). Retailers said sales of the two models accounted for 90% of total iPhone 14 sales.

On November 7, Apple announced on its website that despite strong demand for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models, their supply will be lower than expected. It said customers would experience longer wait times to receive their new products.

The US tech giant said Covid-19 restrictions temporarily affected its main phone assembly plant in the Chinese city of Zhengzhou, leading to supply shortages.
