While there were previous reports indicating that volume production for new iPhone devices has commenced, yield rates at the two main ODMs, Foxconn Electronics and Pegatron, have not yet reached levels that warrant mass production, the report said.
Mass production of the new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models is also reportedly delayed but should get underway in August. That's about 1-2 months later than normal.
Foxconn is producing about 95% of orders for the OLED iPhone and small number of orders for the updated 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models. Pegatron is said to be making 65% of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7s and a small number of the OLED iPhone. The 5.5-inch iPhone will be mainly produced by Wistron.
We've been hearing numerous reports that suggest Apple is struggling to get its new phones ready for the fall launch. The company is allegedly having issues with integrating Touch ID capabilities in the iPhone 8. There's also been claims of a 'sense of panic' at Apple over software related issues.
