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.
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.

I'm thinking that apple is Either thinking about making a wrist watch iPod or iPhone similar to what was mentioned the other day by modmyi. Most likely it is something that will most likely replace iPhone.. Honestly I feel like it's going to be a new leap onto the future... But are we sure that this idea was overseen by Steve jobs?

The only thing they'd do is add more features to it but not replace with with something.

Now that I think about it it could possibly just be apple getting ready to make the iPhone 5 and or a new iPod because it has been quite some time since the last iPod

i thought that apple had give wolfson electronics the contract for the audio chip, like they once held instead of cirrus, for the iphone 5 etciDevice-less, for once. flirting with Andy Roid atm, looking to rekindle romance if the right handset comes along

Cirrus Logic Corp headquarters is right down the street from me. I'll just stroll in and ask em what's up

Sounds like a plan. You can use your one call on me.

The clues are all over the place guys. It's an Apple hand held gaming device. Similar to the PSP's and DS's of the time. But rest assure it will be Applized (a whole lot better). Maybe that's where the slide out on the iPhone 5 comes from. A Playstation Phone type of control pad.

I hope not but you never know.

It's a waffle maker. No?

they'd never spend the time and money on R&D for a handheld gaming device when the iphone/ipod touch does the same thing.
