Supply Constraints May Lead to a Delay in the Release of the Retina iPad Mini
Following a previous report from market research firm IHS iSuppli, sources from within Apple’s supply chain are stating that the Cupertino California company will most likely be unable to roll out a next-gen iteration of the iPad mini with a high resolution Retina display this month. Reuters is now reporting that sources are expecting Apple to wait until early next year for a full-fledged launch or make the iPad mini with Retina display available only in very limited quantities this year. The following was mentioned by the report regarding the supply constraints:
The reason behind the delays in manufacturing the retina display screens for the iPad Mini were unclear. One source at a supplier said there were delays in Apple's certification of panel producers, which were given strict power-saving requirements.
LG Display Co Ltd, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd's display unit and Sharp Corp all vied to manufacture the panels, supply chain sources said.
KGU Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo chimed in on the situation stating that he feels the Retina iPad mini is likely to make an appearance before the end of the year. Either way, we’ll have to wait and see. As of right now, Apple is expected to launch its redesigned iPad and a Retina iPad mini in the near future, with Reuters claiming that the unveiling is planned for some time this month.
