Despite reports stating that Asian suppliers have started mass production of components for the iPad Mini, analyst speculation estimates that the handset might arrive later than expected.

According to Topeka Capital Markets supply chain analyst Brian White, the iPad mini is 4 to 6 weeks behind production schedule due to manufacturing issues faced by suppliers.

“Similar to the iPhone 5, we sensed that suppliers have found the specs around Apple’s 7.85-inch ‘iPad Mini’ to be a challenge and yields have been frustrating,” he explained in a note obtaine by BusinessInsider.



“In our view, this is the reason the ‘iPad Mini’ is 4–6 weeks behind our original launch expectation that we discussed in June… We believe that supply constraints will initially hold back the full sales potential during the first month or so of the launch.”

White expects the iPad mini to debut with a price between $250 and $300.

The analyst also estimates that these production issues will result in low sales, ranging between 5-7 million units in the December quarter.

In addition, a Digitimes report claims that production of the iPad mini display panels at AU Optronics has fared below expectations with just 400,000 panels shipped in Q3.

The site also writes that yield issues are posing problems to chassis manufacturers.

The iPad mini will reportedly come in two body colors, native aluminum and black-anodized aluminum.
