Foxconn CEO says shortages will last until at least the second quarter of 2015. Foxconn handles manufacturing for Apple and other tech heavyweights. The impact of the shortages isn’t expected to be large, but it’s still a notable miss for Foxconn. Samsung has warned of a “serious imbalance” in the semiconductor industry earlier this month. Sony and Microsoft have cited part shortages as major factors in the near-impossible-to-buy status of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
