According to Apple Balla, a burn-in issue of the Retina display has forced Apple to change the schedule of launching the iPad Mini.
A Korean based news website called ETNews informs that the panel’s IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide), manufactured by Sharp, is responsible for the issue.
Apple decides not to use the panel as it doesn’t meet the condition of Apple’s technical policy.
Due to the last-minute issue, Apple has to talk to its major competitor, Samsung, to construct new Retina displays. However, both the companies haven’t found to make any deal.
An anonymous “industry guru” states, “If the burn in problem is not solved, Apple will be in a fix.” He also says, “If Apple relaxes the technological standards for the burn-in, consumers’ perception of Apple may deteriorate, and if not, it will have to change its supply chain and delay the launch of the new product.”
Apple is looking forward to resolving the problem as fast as they can.
