Reuters reports that Sharp's production of screens for the new iPhone is behind schedule. Sharp Corporation is one of three suppliers of the new displays.

Production of Sharp Corp's screens for Apple Inc's latest iPhone is behind schedule as the Japanese display maker struggles with low production yields, a source close to the matter told Reuters on Friday.

Reuters offers no indication how severe the supply limitations are and if they will have an appreciable effect on the launch. As noted, Apple is also being supplied by Japan Display and LG Display Co for the new iPhone screens.

Apple is expected to announced the new iPhone on September 12th.

It;s just crap to drive up day one demand so they can have another"oh the iPhone sold out! give us press about it!"

When a company wants to drive up demand towards supply what you say makes sense. Apple on the other hand will not be able to supply enough of these to meet demand so what you say is crap.
