iPhone 5S providers are focusing on production ahead of the impending launch.

IHS iSuppli estimates that Japan Display Inc. is currently concentrating all its resources on the iPhone 5S.

“JDI is focusing on [production] volumes for the next iPhone launch. So capacity is consumed by smartphone production right now leaving little room for other [production] applications,” director of mobile and emerging displays at IHS iSuppli Vinita Jakhanwal told CNET.

Japan Display Inc. incorporated small and medium-size display businesses of Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba in April 2012.

The company is the largest iPhone screen supplier, with other vendors including Sharp and LG Display.

This year’s iPhone announcement is expected for September 10.
