Apple has reportedly seen improvements in the production of its Late 2012 iMac models and will begin to see sales pick up in the coming months, according to sources in China.
BrightWire, a business-to-business resource for portfolio managers, is reporting
that Apple’s Taiwanese component suppliers are seeing improved yield rates of the new all-in-one computers. As such, “sales of the device may be boosted in 1Q 2013.”
Shipments are expected to remain stable through 1Q 2013, “as new products will usually see orders peak within the first four months after they are launched,” the sources noted.
The information reportedly comes through the China Times, a Taiwan-based newspaper covering domestic and international news.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has already confirmed to investors that the slow adoption rate of his company’s new iMac models was attributed to suppliers' limited production capacity.
