Weâ€™ve previously seen reports that Appleâ€™s upcoming iPad Mini 2 could be hard to find at launch because of supply constraints, caused by the slow Retina Display panels production. However, Appleâ€™s production of the upcoming fifth-generation iPad was plagued with the same issue - panel supply constraints.
According to a research note obtained by ChinaPost, Apple seems to have worked out the supply issues with the iPad 5 by adding a new supplier. Analyst Skye Chen said the following:
â€œWe believe the panel supply issues will ease this month due to LG Display's improving yield rates and new supply from Samsung.â€
No details regarding the production of the next-gen iPad Mini have been shared, but if Apple releases the tablet tomorrow, then this means the bottlenecks have been solved.
