However, if there is good news, there is also bad news for this win by Apple. The iPhone 12 was revealed to have hit something that the company is fearing: chip shortage. 

Despite Apple having its design of unified ARM-chip for the iPhone 12 known as the A14 Bionic, it is still facing a shortage issue that dooms its distribution. 

This was also revealed in Apple's report, which the company has released earlier via live stream. Apple said that it would continue to ramp up the production of these chips and try to have them delivered in time for assembly and distribution, to offset the chip shortage issues.
