Apple has been behind other companies when it comes to the size of the iPhone screen, but that is going to change soon according to all of the rumors floating around. Unfortunately, it seems like the model featuring a 5.5 inch screen might be running into problems.
Reuters is now reporting that mass production of a 4.7 inch iPhone is going to be starting in May, but supply chain issues are holding up the start of the 5.5 inch model. The larger screens use in-cell technology that is going to cost more in resources to produce, meaning they will be put on the back burner until Apple has the ability to keep up with the demand.
This is coming on the heels of another report saying that the iPad Pro is going to be delayed as well due to problems with the supply chain. If the reports are to be believed, there have been a lot of delays this year for Apple all along the different product lines.
The screens are going to be produced by LG and are expected to be released in the 4.7 inch model in September, with the 5.5 inch model following a few months afterward. What kind of official release date we will see can’t be known at the moment, since Apple hasn’t released any announcement yet, but it is expected to be coming in the next couple of months.
