Apple iPhone 6 Currently Facing Production Issues, Says Reports

Apparently, going by what the reports have to say, suppliers for Apple are currently struggling to provide enough number of screens for the new iPhone 6 smartphone. The chain has been disrupted by the need to redesign a key component ahead of it final launch.

Sources have revealed that it's unclear if the issue could delay the launch of the handset or limit the number of phones initially available to consumers at launch. As you may know, Apple is already prepping larger-screen iPhones for the shopping season at the end of the year.

"But the issue highlights the risks and challenges that suppliers face to meet Apple's tough specifications, and comes on the heels of a separate screen technology problem, since resolved, in making thinner screens for the larger iPhone 6 model," a Reuters report states.

In fact, a couple of sources have claimed that the display panel production has suffered a major setback "after the backlight that helps illuminate the screen had to be revised." This has put the overall screen assembly on hold for part of June and July.

"One said Apple, aiming for the thinnest phone possible, initially wanted to cut back to a single layer of backlight film, instead of the standard two layers, for the 4.7-inch screen, which went into mass production ahead of the 5.5-inch version," the report adds.

The Apple iPhone 6 is currently set to be announced at Apple's upcoming September 9 event. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
