Apple Share price is dropping. Here’s the reason why?

Apple’s share price dropped on Tuesday. The reason was that Apple Inc. is likely to cut its projected iPhone 13 production target of 90 million for 2021 because chip shortages hit its flagship product production, according to experts in the field.

According to Bloomberg, Apple expected to produce 90 million iPhones in the last three months of the year.

But as its suppliers, Broadcom Inc. and Texas Instruments Inc. are struggling their way to deliver components.

So the company is telling the manufacturers that they might see low production than the expected production amount.

Major chipmakers are warning Apple and other technology companies that this crisis can last till next year or maybe beyond.

This news made investors sell their shares as they are expecting to go share price more below.

Apple share price slipped to $141.04 lowest for the day in late trading after Bloomberg reported on the news.
