If you have saved enough money to buy the iPhone 5, the latest version of Apple’s smartphone, place your pre-order as soon as you can since the supply of the smartphone will be restricted.
Reports suggest that the demand will outgrow the supply. iPhone 5 introduces some never seen features in the market with its release. The smartphone will host a four inch display according to the specifications released online.
Japan’s display manufacturer Sharp is accommodating the needs of Apple and Samsung. Samsung’s win in the recent legal battles in Japan will increase the pressure on the display giant.
It is speculated that Sharp is already behind in the production schedule issued by Apple. With just weeks left for the release this condition might create problems for the sales of iPhone 5 post its unveiling.
The new four inch screen is expected to be thinner than the previous versions due to the use of in-cell panel technology. Sharp has been facing problems in increasing the production of the screens.
The initial sales after the release of previous versions of iPhone have been over 1 million. Apple will hope to repeat its performance.
iPhone 5 is a collection of components manufactured by various blue chip companies. The shortage of some of the components might create problems for the company.
According to Statista/Gartner Google’s OS covers over 60% of the market while Apple’s iOS account for 20%. The status quo of the surroundings will pressure Apple to produce more number of iPhones in a shorter time frame.
