Apple’s new 6.1-inch iPhone to be available in ‘limited quantities’ at launch
Ahead of Apple’s highly anticipated September 12 event, new reports from Bloomberg suggest the forthcoming 6.1-inch LCD low-cost iPhone, dubbed the “iPhone 9″/”iPhone Xc” will be available in ‘limited quantities’ at launch, with “minor complications fitting backlights” in the new model to blame for the supposed delay.
Apple appears to have been battling the LCD display issue on the 6.1-inch iPhone since production begun earlier in the year. Reports in August by Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the most accurate Apple analysts on the planet, shared that the device would launch “slightly later” than the two premium OLED iPhone models, referred to as the “iPhone Xs & iPhone XS Max”, possibly due to production delays reported in July.
The Apple Post reported on Sunday that leaked images said to be from Apple.com revealed new Red, Spicy Orange & Cobalt Blue color finishes for the “iPhone 9”, as well as confirming the devices would come with a Lightning to USB-C Cable and an 18W USB-C Power Adapter, matching reports that suggested Apple’s next-generation iPhone line would pack the accessories needed to enable fast-charging out-of-the-box.
