Sharp, one of the three companies responsible for manufacturing the iPhone screen, has encountered “manufacturing difficulties” and lacks a timetable for the shipment of the displays. This could turn out to be a big issue for Apple as Sharp is one of only three display manufacturers that Apple has contracted. The other two are LG Display and Japan Display, and it seems they might need to make up for Sharp’s slow manufacturing start.
Meanwhile, another day brings us another leaked picture of the alleged iPhone 5, this time side to side with the its older siblings.
It’s taller, the camera is at the center, but otherwise they look almost perfectly identical. We know, though that the back is where the difference should be. Apple is unveiling the new iPhone on September 12th, the date we’re all waiting forward to to put all these rumors to rest.
