Desperate iPhone fans are paying thousands more than retail price to snag the latest handset.
Anyone hoping to buy the top-of-the-line iPhone 14 Pro Max directly from Apple will have to wait until the end of next month for it to arrive.
Those who can’t wait are now paying big bucks for an iPhone on eBay.
An impatient buyer paid almost £3,000 more than Apple’s asking price for the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Many more are in the £2,000+ range as sellers capitalize on demand.
The bottlenecks also seem to be felt by mobile phone providers.
The four major UK networks EE, O2, Three and Vodafone are also giving expected delivery dates towards the end of October.
But stocks for the slightly smaller iPhone 14 Pro are still very readily available at the moment.
The problem seems to be the same across the pond in the US as well.
All of this is happening just before the iPhone 14 Plus even hits shelves.
