Now we know why the iPhone 6’s release date might get pushed back to October

iPhone 6 Rumors Release Date

Depending on whom you ask, Apple will launch the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 either in September or October, with the 5.5-inch version expected to arrive a few months later, although most reports seem to favor September as the most likely launch month for the handset. KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo has learned more details about Apple’s iPhone 6 production, Liberty Times reports, revealing the company is facing yield issues with certain components, including in-cell touch panels and metal chassis.

FROM EARLIER: New report claims the iPhone 6 may release much later than we expected

Kuo, who has accurately provided information on unreleased Apple devices in the past, says the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is the most affected iPhone 6 product by these production problems, and the smartphone’s launch might be pushed back to the fourth quarter of the year, or even later, for early next year.

The Taiwanese publication further says that shares for several Apple suppliers have recently dropped, which may be perceived as one other sign things aren’t going exactly as planned with iPhone 6 production.

However, the analyst did not reveal when the new iPhone 6 will be launched. A MacRumors report last week said the iPhone 6 could be released on October 14th, which is apparently an important date for the company.

According to various reports, Apple is getting ready for its biggest iPhone launch in its history, having ordered up to 80 million iPhone 6 units from its suppliers for 2014.
