Apple plans to start the production of new iPhone models in June, to prevent shortage of goods at the start of sales. It is reported by DigiTimes, citing sources close to the company’s plans. The sources say that Apple fears associated with a possible shortage of cameras TrueDepth that form the basis of the interface Face ID.
Last year, Apple was forced to delay the release of iPhone X for almost two months because of the shortage of cameras TrueDepth. This time in Cupertino, not wanting to repeat their mistakes, made the decision about the need for early start of production. So Apple expects to release smartphones in sufficient volume to satisfy the expected General demand.
It is believed that in the fall Apple will introduce three smartphones with the design of the iPhone X. Two models will be equipped with OLED displays and the top iron, while the third will receive the LCD-matrix and, probably, last year’s processor and less RAM. This iPhone will be a much cheaper model in 2017 and, no doubt, will provide the company significant sales growth.
