Do you remember last weeks story from Reuters about how production issues could delay the launch of the iPhone 6″ ? Forget about it, says at least one Wall Street analyst, according to AppleInsider.
J.P. Morgans Rod Hall told inventors on Monday that This sounds like a typical late-in-the-game supply chain story that turns out to have no impact on launch dates or devices sales.” He continued We believe that initial supply could be slowed somewhat if there is any truth to this but we doubt that iPhone unit volumes in the fall are likely to be impacted.”
On Sunday, I noted that Reuters was probably right andApplewashaving production issues with the next iPhone. However, I said that those issues were almost certainly resolvedwithout necessitating a launch delay.
It’s good to see that I’m not the only one voice this opinion.
As AppleInsidercorrectly highlighted “as for the track record forReuters, the news publication also claimedlast yearthat Apple’s iPad mini with Retina display may not arrive until 2014 due to alleged supply constraints. Of course, that report ended up being erroneous, as the high-resolution iPad mini launched last year without issue.”
The iPhone 6 is expected to be announced on Tuesday, Sept. 9.
