At launch, there may not be enough iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max models available
The most recent reports assert that Apple will stick to its original schedule and announcement of its new iPhones in September of this year.
Trouble making the displays
According to The Information, Apple is having trouble producing the displays for its forthcoming iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. These issues could lead to limited availability during the anticipated launch in September.
The iPhone 15 Pro: curved edges and smaller bezels
If recent leaks seem genuine, the iPhone 15 Pro models may have curved edges and smaller bezels than the iPhone 14 Pro models. However, the main reason for the manufacturing problems is the shrinkage of the bezel.
New display manufacturing technique
Apple’s vendors used a new display manufacturing technique to achieve smaller bezels. Screens failing reliability tests while being fused with a metal shell has caused issues with LG Display.
Therefore, the cited source claims that Apple is working diligently on changing the LG display design and that if the company’s manufacturing problems persist, it may also consider displays from Samsung.
Apple won’t delay the launch
Apple reportedly won’t delay the release of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max instead of these difficulties. However, there may be fewer units on hand when the product arrives because of manufacturing problems. The iPhone 15 Pro Max appears to be more impacted than the other two models, which could result in shortages following the launch event.
