If Apple holds true to form they'll be announcing the next generation of iPhone in a matter of days, and the rumoured two phones should be on sale by the end of September. But we're now hearing it might be hard to get your hands on one.
Reuters reports that Apple's exacting standards saw an initial backlight component being rejected for not being bright enough. In striving to keep the device as slim as possible only a single layer of backlighting material was used and the result wasn't up to scratch, forcing a redesign and a lack of progress during June and July 2014.
The issue has been resolved but we don't yet know how the delay will effect the numbers of finished devices that Apple will have ready at launch. Or whether they'll have to push the release date a little later to ensure they can meet demand.
Launch days are historically massive business for Apple, with the 5Sand 5Cselling over 9 million units in their first weekend, and fans aren't known for their patience. Deciding on a later launch date before an annoucement would be the best way to deal with any potential issue.
Expect word on the two variants of iPhone 6 on the 9th of September 2014.
