As we know the Wall Street Journal has reported that iPhone 5 demand has dropped among iPhone lovers and Apple has slashed LCD panel orders for iPhone 5 due to weak demand. Now BusinessInsider is claiming that iPhone 5 demand has not dropped and weak demand is the reason behind the iPhone 5 LCD panel order cut. Now you must be thinking about the actual reason behind the order cut. According to BusinessInsider, Shaw Wu at Sterne Agee has claimed that Apple has slashed LCD panel orders for iPhone 5 due to much improved yield.
According to Shaw Wu, iPhone 5 demand is still very high. Lower component builds and supplier shifts are the two main reasons due to which Apple has slashed LCD panel orders for iPhone 5. He has confirmed that weak demand is not the reason for iPhone LCD panel order cut. Apple had unveiled iPhone 5 on 12th of September, then they had started taking pre-order on September 14th. It was the most successful iPhone launch in Apple’s history. Apple had started selling iPhone 5 on 21st of September. It features A6 chip, iOS 6, 4-inch display, 1GB RAM, 8 MP iSight camera, 1.2 MP FaceTime camera, Siri and 9-pin dock connector. It is expected that iPhone 5S will be launched in June. Jeffries analyst Peter Misek has already reported that iPhone 5S production will start in March.
If you are a big fan of iPhone 5, then you can buy it from Apple online store. You have to pay $199 to buy 16GB iPhone 5, $299 to buy 32GB iPhone 5 and you have to pay $399 to buy 64GB iPhone 5 with a two-year contract. Still no word from Apple regarding the launch date of iPhone 5S. Peter Misek had predicted that the next generation iPhone will feature NFC, IGZO screen, new super HD camera, improved battery, 128GB storage and it will be launched in six to eight colors.
