Apple has lifted purchase limits on its phones, tablets and laptops for customers outside China, the media reported.

The company last week imposed a purchase limits across several of its products, reports MacRumors.

The new MacBook Air and Mac mini were limited to five orders per customer, the new iPad Pro was limited to two 11-inch models per customer and two 12.9-inch models per customer, and iPhones were limited to two of each model per customer.

Meanwhile, some purchase limits have yet to be lifted in China.

The restrictions were imposed to better manage the demand-supply ratio following a slowdown in production due to factory shutdowns in China.

According to a Nikkei Asian Review report, Japan Display (JDI) has been in negotiations with “Apple and Sharp to sell its Hakusan liquid crystal display plant” owing to “poor sales of iPhone panels”.

The sale to both Apple and Sharp was reportedly delayed in the wake of new coronavirus pandemic.

“JDI decided to sell LCD production equipment to Apple first and real estate to Sharp later,” the report mentioned.

By offloading Hakusan, JDI would concentrate smartphone LCD panel production at the Mobara plant in Chiba Prefecture.
