Apple 12.9-Inch iPad Production Reportedly Delayed Due To High iPhone 6 Demand

Apple 12.9-Inch iPad Production Reportedly Delayed Due To High iPhone 6 Demand(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Apple’s larger iPad is reportedly being delayed as suppliers continue to focus their attention on the high demand for the new iPhone 6s.

“The top priority for the supply chain is to meet the overwhelming demand for the larger screen iPhones. The output of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus remains unsatisfactory,” said a supplier source. “It would be challenging for display makers to split resources and spend a few months to ramp up production for a new larger screen iPad now.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, sources familiar with the matter claim that the tech giant was planning to ramp up production of the 12.9-inch iPad in December, but will now postpone it until early next year.

On October 16th Apple is holding a media event where many speculated the new larger iPad and iPad Mini would make their debut.
