Next-generation iPhones will be short in supply, No new iPad mini this year [Report]

A KGI Securities analyst throws punches in the air about Apple's next-generation of products.

Fresh from the rumor mill is a prediction made by analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo, corroborating previous rumors about Apple's next-generation products.

First on Kuo's predictions is the iPhone 5S which, according to the KGI Securities analyst, will be short in supply. The reason for this, Kuo believes, has something to do with supply issues, particularly, the struggle to manufacture new components. The said new components were not detailed, but we could be looking at the rumored fingerprint sensor everyone's talking about.

Kuo also predicts that there will be a low-cost iPhone that will have a plastic body. Just a few days ago, we wrote about a plastic iPhone that got compared to an iPhone 5. Many believe it to be the rumored low-cost iPhone 5, although we prefer to take it with a grain of salt. Both iPhones are expeted to launch in September, so production should be at full throttle, given the case.

Kuo, meanwhile, has a different view about Apple's next-gen iPad. Kuo says that there will be a redesigned iPad, a fifth-generation iPad that is, with a thinner and lighter design. The bummer is Kuo's prediction that there won't be a new iPad mini, at least this year. However, Apple is said to be launching two new iPad minis next year - an iPad mini with a Retina display and a low-cost iPad mini touting an A5 processor.

Furthermore, Kuo is expecting Apple to release newly-updated Intel Haswell-based Macbook Airs. We'll see about Kuo's predictions soon.
