Report: Apple could face production problems trying to make the Apple iPhone 6 screen thinner
The problem is that by using just one BEC, Apple is depending on one film to do the work of two. This could lead to a lower production yield for the handset. Meanwhile, OMRON and Radiant are expected to receive orders for some of the backlight assemblies that will be pulled from Miebea. Because LCD's do not produce light on their own, a source of light needs to be added. Additionally, these sources say that Apple is still using in-cell technology in the production of the screen, contrary to previous reports. We could see a curved screen on the iPhone 6, if a rumor we passed along to you earlier today, is legitimate.,
In line with earlier rumors, the supply chain sources say that the iPhone 6 will start to undergo mass production next month, with the phone expected to be released in September.
Thanks for the tip!
