Cheaper iPhone Display Already Causing Headaches for Apple Suppliers
Apple’s most affordable 2018 iPhone also proves the most difficult to build, if a recent analyst note is accurate.
The company’s new iPhone trio reportedly includes a cheaper model coming with a 6.1-inch LCD panel, while the other two, likely to be a successor to the iPhone X and a Plus-sized sibling, are expected to feature an OLED screen.
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty says Apple suppliers have experienced particular struggles with the 6.1-inch LCD panel, experiencing a mass-production delay of approximately 1 month. By the looks of things, a so-called LED backlight leakage is the culprit and Apple has already managed to fix it together with partners.
