According to a new report from the far east, production of the next-gen iPhone has been slowed by battery problems.
Chinese tech news site Sina.com first reported the story, which was subsequently picked up by Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, who says the problem relates to the inability of many iPhone 6 batteries to meet Apple’s standards.
What that means specifically, however, is anyone’s guess.
White does admit that this production problem likely won’t impact the fall release of the next-gen iPhone
“If there is a battery challenge, we trust that Apple will be able to figure it out in time for a September launch,” White says.
White’s belief stands in stark contrast to the majority of industry analysts who think the 6th generation iPhone will be released in October at the earliest.
