Apple might face supply shortage for iPhone 6 after the launch
As we all know Apple has been facing problems with the manufacturing of both their iPhone 6 models including the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 and the 5.7 inch iPhone 6. According to the supply chain sources Apple is yet again facing problems with the production of the 4.7 inch iPhone 6. It’s not a simple matter as the problems is with the design of the iPhone 6 itself.
According to the sources Apple started having this problem in the month of July and the reason is because of the last minute design changes in the iPhone 6. Apple wanted their iPhone 6 to be the thinnest this year and to achieve that Apple had to reduce a layer of backlighting film on their iPhone 6. By doing that Apple did achieve a thinner iPhone 6 but because of using just one layer of backlighting film the brightness on the screen of the iPhone 6 was not up to Apple’s standards, because of which Apple had to redesign their iPhone 6 and had to revert back to using two layers of backlighting film instead of one.
A design change weeks before the launch of iPhone 6 can lead to delays in the manufacturing of the iPhone 6 and manufacturers might not be able to provide Apple with contracted quantity of iPhone 6 units on its launch. This is the first time in the history of Apple that it has tried to revamp the design of their iPhone and has increased the screen size from 3.5 inches to 4.7 inches which is a huge improvement compared to the previous generations of iPhone.
Apple fans who are anxiously waiting for the launch of iPhone 6 might have to wait a little longer than usual to get their hands on the iPhone 6 like they did last time with iPhone 5 when the demand was high and the production was low.
