Apple won’t have enough iPhone 5’s at launch – EVERYONE PANIC!
According to industry sources, due to a manufacturing defect at a plant belonging to Apple’s subcontractor Wintek, there might be less iPhone 5 units shipped to the USA than it was originally planned.
According to DigiTimes, air bubbles in iPhone 5’s LCD display covering was the actual defect that Apple had to deal with.
The company planned to ship 25-26 million units of the iPhone 5 in the fourth quarter of 2011, while WinTek had to provide around 25% of the LCD sensor units. Obviously this won’t be happening now, so depending on demand Apple might not have enough units available for everyone.
Apple’s iPhone 5 is expected to be launched in October 2011.
