Anyone who wants to buy a new iPhone right now is going to have to wait a little while for it to arrive, but according to a new report things light be looking up. In fact, as we edge closer to Christmas we’re told that iPhone 13 availability is likely to improve.

That’s according to a report by DigiTimes which claims that Apple’s suppliers are beginning to come to terms with the parts shortages that have caused chaos of late.

According to Apple supply chain partners, the gap between demand and supply of iPhone 13 handsets is “gradually narrowing” as the manufacturing of circuit boards begins to increase.

All of Apple’s product lines have suffered in some way since the semiconductor shortage began and Apple released four new iPhones in the midst of that problem. Now, things look set to improve and it couldn’t come at a better time.

With iPhones, iPads, and even new AirPods likely to be big sellers this Christmas, being able to get them in time is a vital part of the gift buying equation. If DigiTimes is correct, we can expect things to improve within weeks.

Apple is already getting ready for its holiday season, telling customers to place orders as soon as possible to avoid the potential for disappointment. It’s also extended its return policy into January 8 to allow for gifts to be returned and exchanged.
