Reuters reported that Apple Inc may once again face supply problems at iPhone launch time, as its manufacturing partners struggle to produce enough screens for the iPhone 6, following a hasty redesign of a key component. Japan Display Inc, Sharp Corp and South Korea’s LG Display Co were selected by Apple to make the screens for the iPhone 6, which is expected to be launched on 9 September. Citing sources within the supply chain, Reuters said it was not clear whether the launch would have to be delayed or Apple would settle for reduced volume, as it did for the 2012 launch of the iPhone 5 and the 2013 launch of the iPad Mini Retina Display. Pressure from cheaper competitors has led Cupertino to opt for an iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens. The large-screen models are a significant step up from the 4-inch variants available in the current-generation 5c and 5s handsets.
