Digitimes is reporting that the rumored iPad mini and the 13″ Retina Macbook are being plagued by production delays.
The news comes from a sourced traced back to a Far Eastern supply chain, which suggests that Foxconn and Pegatron are struggling to meet their yield targets for the display and the chassis of the iPad mini.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard these rumors about the iPad mini. However, the 13″ Retina Macbook hasn’t been associated with such rumors, and so for the next Mac, this is a new development.
Cult of Mac suggests that this is a plausible development, because Apple’s products are becoming increasingly more complex, so it should follow that perhaps production times could suffer as a result.
What do you think? Would you be prepared to wait potentially longer for a device as its complexity increases? Or should Apple also be looking at ways to develop the manufacturing process of their devices in partnership with Foxconn and the like in order to make them more efficient?
