  • Cirrus Logic Production Issues Raise Speculation About Possible New Apple Device

    Cirrus Logic, one of Apple's better known component suppliers, is at the center of swirling speculation about the possibility of Apple working on a yet-to-be released new product. Cirrus, which supplies audio chips for Apple's iOS devices, is believed to be encountering manufacturing problems and other setbacks related to an Apple product.
    Cirrus late Thursday said it had determined an earlier test for a particular function of a new audio product--which analysts assume is for Apple--was insufficient to guarantee that all products met a certain standard. After a more rigorous test was developed, Cirrus found fewer working chips than previously expected, with that yield loss rising as volumes increased.
    It is highly doubtful that the device in question is the iPhone 5, as there is little or no credible evidence to suggest that production may have already begun on the 5th generation handset. Could it be the iPad 2? Possibly. But sources contend that further production delays may inhibit "product launch." The second-generation tablet, as we know, is already here, and there's no reason whatsoever to suspect that the iPad 3 is in production.

    Do where does this leave us? Perhaps Apple is readying an iPod refresh of some sort. Or, as the case may be, Apple could be developing a new "new audio product" the likes of which we presently cannot envision. Either way, Cirrus Logic is telling us that something is in the works. It just isn't clear yet if that "something" is anything to really get excited about.

      iTase. It would incorporate tasing with you're favorite music. Relax and protect "yo-self". I think I just invented the next add on to the iDevice. Talk-n-tase.... Text-n-..... You get the point.

      We most likely have no idea what it is. Apple won't tell us, and unless something big leaks, we won't know 'til its release.

      This is assuming it's actually a new product.

      Trust me...we're all sure Steve Jobs still oversees EVERYTHING. That's not going to change anytime soon. I don't care what you hear. And did you say REPLACE iPhone? There is nothing ANYTIME SOON that is going to replace the iPhone...by apple or anyone else...except a NEW VERSION iPhone. But that won't be here until fall.

      —And finally, about the wristwast deal...that was something that "synced" with your iPhone that displays what is going on on your iPhone itself. (for lack of a better destiption by myself anyway...)

      Happy speculating.
      Until Jobs is dead (probably not even then) the iPhone WILL NOT have a physical keyboard. And why do so many not realize for the most part "Applized" as you so affectionately call it just means OVERPRICED, (unless like the iphone it can be subsidized) pretty and underpowered with a decent, well made UI. (with very few exceptions) and before I get flamed by fanboys I'm typing on one of the few exceptions...iPhone 4.
