Reuters: Apple iPhone 6 production hit by screen snag

According to a Reuters report, the production of Apple's next generation iPhone - the iPhone 6 - has apparently hit a snag involving the manufacturing of the screens for the handset.

With the new iPhone 6 model of the Apple handset reportedly to be available in two screen sizes - a 4.7-inch screen and a 5.5-inch screen -, the hardware suppliers of the company are reportedly scrambling to manufacture screens for the forthcoming device, which will likely be unveiled next month.

As per the Reuters report, the screen snag hitting the iPhone 6 production is apparently a result of the fact that the manufacturing of the screens for the handset has been affected because of a eleventh-hour redesign of a critical component.

The report - citing unidentified sources - has revealed that, in the last couple of months, the production of iPhone 6 screens has been disrupted due to an issue with the backlight that is used for illuminating the iPhone screen.

Though the report also notes alongside that the production of the screens for the iPhone 6 model are now back on track after the disruption, it nonetheless asserts that, as of now, it is not clear whether the disruption will have an adverse impact on the launch date or initial availability of the new iPhone handset.
