Time Capsule stock sees delays, sell-outs worldwide

Could be linked to hard drive shortages

Apple's Time Capsule routers are seeing delays or shortages in different parts of the world, notes 9to5Mac. The company's online stores in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, and France are sometimes seeing delivery times of one to three weeks for 3TB models, or one- to two-week delays for 2TB routers. Third-party vendors Amazon and Best Buy are out of 3TB models, and some Australian Apple Stores may be completely out of stock.

The issue may be connected to last year's flooding in Thailand, which has disrupted the hard drive industry, creating shortages and higher prices. Computer and peripheral manufacturers have in turn suffered production problems, including Apple. In December the company pushed delivery times for custom 2TB iMacs up to as much as five to seven weeks.
