Apple will Ship New Mac Pro in February 2014

Apple's all new Mac Pro is a much awaited device for Macintosh power users. And Apple ends their wait by launching the 'most powerful' Mac Pro yesterday for sale. Apple's CEO Tim Cook on Wednesday tweeted: “We have begun manufacturing the Mac Pro in Austin.  It’s the most powerful Mac ever. Orders start tomorrow.”

Most of the Apple devices are made in China. This is actually the first US assembled Mac desktop that is manufacturing in Austin, Texas. And Cook called it the "most powerful Mac ever" manufactured. Apple's online starts taking orders for new Mac Pro yesterday with shipping estimate of December 30th first. Just hours after the Mac Pro launch, Apple slips the shipping estimate from December 30th, 2013 to February 2014.

This year again with new Mac Pro release, Apple repeats the last year's iMac holiday shortage. It looks like that Austin is in trouble. Apple is not expecting high demand of its expensive cylindrical-shaped workstations. And that can be the reason behind increase in shipping estimates. Another reason for the shipping delays could be the low volume of Mac Pro production

An Apple spokesman told Forbes yesterday, “Demand for the all new Mac Pro is great and it will take time before supply catches up with demand.” 

But the situation is even worse as some users in Apple's home state California even reported a March 5 shipment date for customized Mac Pro version. 9to5Mac reports, "we’re also hearing from customers with shipping quotes all the way in March." 

"Most of Apple's products do end up being supply constrained early in the product cycle, especially in cases where the external design has changed along with the internals," said ArsTechnica

Whatever is the reason behind shipping delays, Apple customers are disappointed who want to buy the new Mac Pro. And they are waiting it from June 2013, when Apple first announced the new Mac Pro. We can just hope that Apple will improve its shipping estimates as soon as possible by refining its manufacturing process at Austin.
