The fact is that in February, due to bad weather, Samsung suspended the work of its large chip manufacturing plant in Texas. The same company creates chips for Qualcomm and chips for Samsung OLED displays. Namely, these displays are used on the iPhone. Analysts believe that this situation may affect the production of these devices.
Journalists even suggested that this could affect the release dates for new iPhones in 2021 because last year, due to the closure of factories during the pandemic, the release of iPhones was postponed for more than a month. However, it is too early to draw such conclusions.
