While there were previous reports indicating that volume production for new iPhone devices has commenced, yield rates at the two main ODMS, Foxconn Electronics and Pegatron, have not yet reached levels that warrant mass production.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently published a report that supported claims that Apple will debut the OLED iPhone in September, but the device will face "severe supply shortages" for some time. Kuo believes that production ramp-up on the OLED model will not begin until October to November.
Last week, claims were made that the software-side of things is not going well either. Some rumors say that there are problems with the front-facing camera's 3D sensor and could see the feature unavailable at launch. A purported wireless charging accessory for the iPhone is also thought to be coming later than planned.
