September, when we expect the iPhone 14 family to launch, as per Apple’s yearly schedule, is only a couple months away and now it looks like the iPhone 14 Max might not make that date, thanks to supply chain difficulties. Analyst Ross Young reported via a Super Followers tweet, brought to our attention by 9to5mac, that production of the iPhone 14 Max is behind schedule, making it the first 6.7-inch iPhone that isn’t a Pro model to cause some supply chain issues.

In his tweet, available only to Super Followers of his account, Young said that panel shipments are still “way behind” where they should be this close to launch and he also shared that panel shipments for the iPhone 14 Max are still lagging far behind the iPhone 14 Pro Max
