Apple has reportedly placed large volume orders for its new MacBook Pro models indicating high expectations for the holiday quarter, reports DigiTimes.
The orders have filled up some of its suppliers' capacities, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers. However, most of the suppliers are unwilling to expand capacities on concerns that Apple may stop taking its ordered shipments suddenly like it did in the fourth quarter of 2012.
The site notes that Apple announced 4.57 million Mac units sold last quarter, up 21% sequentially. It's thought that recent updates to the MacBook Air and iMac are responsible for the growth.
