IPhone Not Ready On Time!

Yesterday we told you how those in the know think the new Iphone is going to be a big disappointment now we are being told that it could  now be delayed? Key screen supplier hits 'manufacturing difficulties' just weeks before handset is due to be unveiled

One of the firms believed to be making the screen for Apple's new iPhone is struggling with manufacturing problems, it has emerged.

The gadget, expected to be revealed at an event on 12th September in San Francisco, is believed to have a larger, thinner screen that uses less power, boosting the handset's battery life.

Some reports claim it could give a boost of up to 40%.

Apple CEO Tim Cook is expected to unveil the new iPhone on September 12th. It is expected to have a larger screen - but today it emerged one of the key suppliers is behind schedule on making them


The next iPhone is expected to use in-cell LCD panels, a new technology that makes the smartphone's screen thinner by integrating touch sensors into the LCD, eliminating the need for a separate touch-screen layer.

However, in-cell panels are believed to be technologically more difficult to mass produce compared to conventional LCD panels.

It is believed the Japanese display maker is struggling with high costs that have cut into its margins on the screens.

“So what do you think? Can you believe everything you read in the papers” asks Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.
