Following the divulging of Apple’s iPhone 4 in the earlier part of the month, the device’s Retina Display screen created the maximum buzz.
The screen, which is also used in iPad, boasts of the in-plane switching technology and reports claim that the technology is made by the LG Display.
In the midst of the wide wait for the iPhone 4, the experts fear supply hiccups in the display.
“Low yields on the IPS LCD panel from LG Display have dramatically impacted the production volumes for iPhone 4. Our supply chain checks indicate that our earlier monthly shipment estimate of 4 million units have been reset by about half”, said Ashok Kumar, Managing Director and Senior Technology Analyst at Rodman & Renshaw, in a research note.
It is feared that in the coming months, the supply issues would pose a serious threat to the iPhone 4.
According to him, in the month of September, there is a possibility that the demand would be chased by the supply of the device.
The hiccups in the display supply are not considered welcome news, since a robust demand of iPhone 4 is anticipated by the analysts.
It is believed that in the wake of the crunch, the users of iPhone and iPhone 3GS may switch to iOS 4.
