Yield Rates and OLED Supply May Result in Limited Availability of iPhone 8 at Launch

Posted by · 3337 views · Translate
Industry sources are again predicting that low yield rates and OLED supply may result in limited availability of the iPhone 8 at launch, reports DigiTimes.

The latest speculation comes even though chipset suppliers have begun delivering related parts to the iPhone supply in the second quarter, and iPhone assemblers Foxconn Electronics, Pegatron and Wistron have been stepping up efforts to recruit more workers for their assembly lines in China, said the sources.

Additionally, sources say that judging from the current supply of OLED panels, it will be difficult for Apple to ship up to 50-60 million OLED-based new iPhones in 2017. Apple is sourcing its OLED panels from Samsung but it appears as though only 3-4 million OLED based iPhones will be ready to ship before the iPhone 8's unveiling in September.
