Apple, which has been experiencing problems with the production of the iPhone X last year, is also having trouble with the production of the 6.1-inch LCD screen this year. According to the claim, the affordable iPhone model will be on the market a month after OLED display models.
Apple has introduced a different model to all smartphones that it has introduced with the iPhone X for the past year. This caused the Cupertino-based company to live up to supply problems, launching the iPhone X about a month and a half later. It looks like the company will have a similar problem this year. The strange point is that; Apple is experiencing production problems in this affordable model, not the premium model.
According to analyst Katy Huberty of Morgan Stanley, Apple has no problems with the production of 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED display models. The same is not true for the 6.1-inch LCD screen. According to Huberty, the light leakage problem on the LED back panel of the LCD display model will cause the 6.1-inch model to be offered to the market a month after the OLED display models.
Katy Huberty is not the first to say that Apple is experiencing a light leak problem in the production of the 6.1-inch LCD screen. Another report that emerged in early June claimed that Apple had a similar light leak problem. Apparently, Apple users who are waiting an extra month to get the premium model for the past year will also wait an extra month to get the affordable model this year.
Apple’s procurement problems are more important than other smartphone makers. Because Apple is introducing smartphones only once a year, and this promotion takes place before the Christmas holiday when iPhone sales cease to exist. The problem with Apple’s iPhone supply is that consumers are turning to other brands, which directly affects iPhone sales.
