We did hear earlier reports of the iPhone 5’s production slowing down because of its aluminum unibody chassis issues, but you can be sure that all the component manufacturers of Apple devices (mostly based in China, the factory of the world, where else?) are working their socks off to deliver a slew of Apple’s new products on time. Some of the rumored devices include a Retina Display supporting 13-inch MacBook Pro, the unicorn-like 7.85-inch iPad mini, and the iMac. It seems that the upstream supply chain are currently cracking their whips in an aggressive manner as they prepare for the theoretically strong orders for October as well as November, leading the way to the mad holiday season rush.
Apparently, there should be a shipment delay due to weak yields of the Retina Display for the iPad mini, according to some sources familiar with the situation. Well, with all the buzz surrounding the iPad mini, you can be more or less sure that it is as real as the device you’re reading this news on, except that Apple has yet to come up with an official statement on it.
