Apple has stopped placing component orders for Macs and suppliers haven't received word as to when orders will resume, according to DigiTimes.

The sources revealed that Apple's Mac orders to the supply chain dropped to almost nothing after the Lunar New Year holidays. Apple had high hopes for its Mac product lines and placed aggressive orders at the end of 2012; however, the company is now badly affected by the decision.
