iPhone 4 Shortages to be Caused By Display Delays

Manufacturing is an intense process that requires cooperation amongst a variety of vendors. Preparing to launch a new product isn’t simply a matter of ramping up production, due to the limited availability of product in our ever increasing demand for electronic devices. With the industry under enormous pressure to support multiple clients like Hewlett Packard, Dell, and of course Apple, the answer isn’t simply, “You should have prepared for this.” It’s an incredibly complicated issue.

Because the iPhone 4 is in such huge demand, customers outcry against Apple’s foreboding delays. Of the issues Apple faces between customer relent and manufacturing woes, The Mac Observer sources the problem in obtaining plane switching displays. While the issue is expected to be resolved by this holiday season, Apple’s initial demand for the new iPhone 4 may be met with later shipping dates as they wait to receive the necessary components.
