This isn’t good news for Apple. According to the ever-questionable DigiTimes, the next iPhone is having some complications when it comes to producing the device, and therefore will be in short supply when the launch comes around. The report claims that the next iPhone will ship under 15 million units upon its release, which is expected fall on September 21st.
There are many parts coming into question here. Earlier this year, it was expected that the in-cell technology displays would cause a shortage of the new iPhones, and new reports are adding on saying that a redesigned connecter on the phone is getting caught up in material shortages.
DigiTimes has been all over the place in terms of accuracy, so, as with most Apple rumors, take this with your average helping of salt. I for one hope this isn’t true, as I will be among the many who plan to preorder the device, which is looking to beat last year’s record of 4 million iPhone 4S’ sold in its first weekend.
What do you think? Are you planning to buy the next iPhone? Does this change your mind? Let us know in the comments.
