f you’re hoping to pick up an iPhone 6S Plus on launch day, you might be out of luck. An analyst in the know says that the super-sized iPhone is facing shortages because of production problems.
According to the number-cruncher in question (KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo), it’s all down to one Japanese supplier’s issues creating the backlight module.
Apple is supposedly looking to switch suppliers to combat the shortages, but it could still mean that launch-day handsets are few and far between.
Shipping estimates for the handset suggest a delay of around three to four weeks - however, the same analyst suspects Apple will have somewhere between 1.5 and 2 million iPhone 6S Plus handsets available on the release date.
The company itself says that it’s expecting to beat last year’s 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices sold over the launch weekend in September 2014.
And when is the iPhone 6S Plus release date? Well, you can pre-order the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus now, with both handsets going on sale on September 25.
