According to a new report by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo [via GforGames], production issues could cause the delay of the release of both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones.
Kuo claims the reasons for the delay have to do with the production of in-cell touch panels and low-yield casing problems.
This marks the first time the analyst believes the release of the 4.7-inch model could suffer a delay.
However, reports have suggested that the phablet iPhone model will have a harder time than its smaller sibling in overcoming these problems, so its launch could be pushed towards the end of the fourth quarter or early-2015.
Last week a report by MacRumors cited a senior Store Leader who claimed that October 14th will be an “immense” day for Apple, sparking rumors that the company could launch the device on that date.
