iPhone 5 Supply Shortage because of In-Cell Touch Panel Issues?

The new iPhone will have not only a larger screen, but also a new display technology. The new In-Cell touch panels are thinner and lighter as they have one layer less. Digitimes reports today about rumors from the display supply chain that talk about low yield rates of in-cell touch panels.

The yield rates are so bad that makers Japan Display, LG Display and Sharp even got already a subsidy offer from Apple in the range of $10-$15.

If matters get worse Apple might have to use the old touchscreen technology for the new iPhone. I just hope there will not be two different iPhone 5 hardware models. One with In-Cell and one with full-lamination. This would cause a lot of confusion for iPhone customers.
