Apple iPhone 6s Plus is a facing supply constraints because of issues with the display production, says a report on 9to5Mac
The report quotes a note from research and analysis firm KGI Securities saying that the issue is “due to supply problems with the 6s Plus’ backlight hardware.” The note adds that Apple will have 1.5 and 2.5 million 6s Plus units for the September 25 shipment date.
Yesterday Apple issued a statement saying that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus pre-orders are set to break all records.
“Customer response to iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been extremely positive, and pre-orders this weekend were very strong around the world,” Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller said in a statement.
Apple began taking preorders on Saturday for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, which will begin shipping September 25.
US telecos have also started revealing their own plans for the new iPhones. Apple is also offering its own financing scheme for an unlocked iPhone 6s, which gives a customer the liberty to switch between carriers, rather than be tied down by a contract with one carrier in the US.
The Apple upgrade programme in the US starts at $32.41 per month for the iPhone 6s 16GB and $36.58 per month for the 16GB iPhone 6s Plus.
Apple’s scheme includes AppleCare+, a warranty program that provides two years of hardware protection, instead of the standard one year, as well as coverage for two incidents in cases of accidental damage.
Apple has not announced dates of the India launch of the new iPhone 6s. The unlocked version of the iPhone 6s is priced at $649 in the US which is around Rs 43119 for the 16GB version when converted. Of course with taxes, etc the price of the iPhone 6s will be muc more when launched in India.
