Apple’s iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus will launch on the 25th of September and now according to a recent report the 6S Plus may be in short supply at launch.
The news comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who recently issued a not to investors saying that the device is facing supply shortages due to backlight supply modules from one of Apple’s suppliers.
We believe Minebea’s (JP) backlight module production issues in supplying iPhone 6S Plus (6S Plus) is one of the main factors in the model’s supply shortage. To tackle this issue, we believe Apple (US) has been increasingly transferring high-ASP 6S Plus backlight module orders to Radiant (6176 TT, NT$106.5, OP), boosting its sales momentum.
Apple is showing shipping on new orders of the iPhone 6S Plus at three to four weeks, this could either be due to the rumored supply chain issues or it could be because of high demand for the handset.
