The Californian technology giant has reportedly delayed the production of larger screen iPad to give its suppliers an opportunity to keep up with the overwhelming demand of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Recently, Wall Street journal reported that Apple’s plan to make a bigger screen iPad have been delayed until early next year, citing anonymous people familiar with the matter. Certainly, the Apple suppliers are having trouble in making sufficient new iPhones to cope up with the public demands, so super sized. 12.9 inch tablet will have to wait.
The suppliers have already planned to start the massive production of larger screen tablets in December.
Currently, Apple’s ultimate priority is to cope with the irresistible demand of larger screen iPhones, Journal’s supplier sources stated. Still, Apple is facing unsatisfactory output of the 5.5-inch iPhone plus from the suppliers-side. It seems quite challenging for the contractors to divide resources and spend some time to slope up production for a new bigger screen iPad.
Here, it’s really important to note, that the reports concerning manufacturing delays normally arise before the widgets launches, especially those from Apple. In April and August, there were some reports that manufacturing problems can delay the launch of iPhone 6-Plus, though it released on time.
With a major decline in iPad sales, Cupertino is looking for the new ways to capture market, particularly with the Business Users. An iPad with the larger screen actually does against enterprise focused widgets such as 12-inch Surface Pro3, which was positioned as a flexible substitute of Apple’s MacBook Air.
Within first 3 days of release, company sold more than 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices, which is believed to be faster than other product in the Apple’s entire history.
Apple’s Chief Executive, Tim Cook told, “We are not happy about the level of new iPhone demand, as we saw millions of customers queuing for long hours to get the new device.”
