This includes the United States and Canada, Europe, Asia and Japan, and there is a cap on the number of units that can be purchased for all newly announced iPad Pro and MacBook Air, Mac mini and all models of iPhone. For example, the new MacBook Air and Mac mini have five devices per customer, and the new iPad Pro has two devices at 11 inches and 12.9 inches combined. IPhone 11 iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 11, iPhone XR, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus are also limited to two per model.
According to MacRumors in the US, the maximum number of units that can be purchased in the Asian region is specified as shown below.
There is no description on the product page in the official online store for Japan, but when you check the contents of the bag, you will be prompted to reduce the total number of purchases with a note as shown below, you can not check out until the conditions are cleared .
It is common for Apple to place purchase restrictions on online stores for Asian countries to prevent resale to gray markets such as AirPods Pro, but this is unusually expanding worldwide. With the pandemic of the new coronavirus infection, we may be trying to balance supply and demand.
