Apple reportedly cut back iPad 2 production target

Posted on Wednesday, February 23 2011 @ 14:25:01 CET by

Anonymous sources at upstream component makers told DigiTimes that Apple has significantly reduced the mass production volume target of its iPad 2 tablet due to touchscreen supply issues:
Amid rumors that Apple is making adjustments in its iPad 2 design and is also facing issues over the device's touch panel yields, sources from upstream component makers pointed out that the announcement of the iPad 2 is still expected to be in the second quarter, but mass production volumes are expected to drop. However, both Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) and Apple declined to comment on the rumors.

The sources pointed out that Apple still maintains its plans to mass produce the iPad 2 by the end of February; however, affected by low touch panel yields and an adjustment in specifications, Apple's production volume forecast for the first quarter is expected to drop from 400,000-600,000 units originally to only 300,000-400,000 units.
