Vegetaholic, 02 Aug 2018What it has to do with LCD? It was problem with light penetrating camera module for white case... moreI was pointing out, to the people claiming this is just a business decision to increase sales of the higher priced handsets, that Apple has previously delayed a model for similar reasons when there was no financial incentive to do so.
Being the first iteration of an all new design, with an all new display connector in a much smaller space, its entirely plausible that the light sealing wasn't perfect on the first crack.

Apple had similar issues way back on iPhone 4 with the white model. It was no more expensive, but was much delayed (and ended up being ever so slightly thicker) because of unanticipated light leakage issues.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2018Here we go the ugly notch and still expensive, what else AppleTimely updates? Wide accessory selection? Strong resale value?
It's all marketing strategy, nothing is wrong with the 6.1inch budget iPhone. The reason is simple, if the budget iPhone arrives the same time with the expensive models ( 5'8 and 6'5 ) customers might decide to buy the budget one more since
People here are convinced it's an Apple scheme. I find it hard to think that the average customer can't wait a month for a phone.
Even if Apple used Samsung LCD panels for the cheaper iphones, they'll still claim 'unavoidable delays' due to 'supply shortage', 'production issues' or some other reason. They have EVERY REASON to release the more expensive models first so they can sell more of the expensive ones.
Romie Lee, 26 Jul 2018There's no surprise over here. LG known for making a failed LCDs, Even in their own smartphone... moreHmm Apple decided to buy from LG and invest in LG... can't really sue them if you're aware of there issues if it was unknown sure..
Thu wanna just push the sales of expensive models by delaying the launch of cheap phone... forcing ppl to buy the expensive stuff
Or maybe Apple is just saying "issues with LCD screens" to get people to buy the other 2 models in the first months. But in fact they don't have any issues, they just postponed the cheaper model, because otherwise the majority of people would have bought the cheaper one, resulting in less money and units sold for the more expensive ones.
Prevent the expensive models from being canabalized. I wonder if they'll increase battery size for this model.

I just love how the words 'Apple', 'budget" and' $700' are used in the same sentence :p
"*budget* iPhone with an expected price tag of $700" What are y'all smoking?
Nah there's no production problems, Apple wants people to spend the extra money and buy the pricier models.
