American tech giant Apple could face the production issues of their devices due to the global chip shortage.

As per reports, tech giant contract manufacturer Foxconn has said that the shipments for the devices may be decreased by 10 percent due to the on-going global shortage of chipsets.

The company also added that Apple is “cautiously optimistic” about the outlook for the rest of the year.

For those who didn’t know that Foxconn is responsible for assembling iPhone models for Apple. In the statement, the company has not mentioned Apple but it is the company’s biggest client. The company has stated that it “has a rather limited impact on orders received a long time ago.”

Earlier, the UK-based 17-year-old girl Amie Hall’s iPhone charger catches fire at night.

However, the girl quickly alerted her mom downstairs and they were able to extinguish the fire without needing the help of firefighters.

The American tech giant is currently investigating the cause of the fire and has strained that all iPhone users should ensure they obey safe charging standards.

It is advised that users should not charge their iPhones in wet places. These could lead to the charger overheating or moistures could cause sparks. The company also advised regular checks for damaged accessories.
