iPhone X shortages
« on: October 13, 2017, 06:13:27 am »
Looks like if you were hoping to grab an iPhone X on launch day you might be disappointed as there is already talk of parts shortages which is of course going to lead to phone shortages. Apparently it's the 3D sensors that are being used for the Face ID feature that are in short supply and might make things really interesting at launch as there could potentially be some very disappointed people who miss out on being the first to get the new model. CNET has the story.

   The iPhone X's most talked about feature, facial recognition, could cause a lot of problems for Apple. According to a report by Nikkei Asian Review, iPhone manufacturers aren't building 3D sensors for the iPhone's TrueDepth camera system fast enough to keep up with yield rates. This means that when the iPhone X hits stores on Nov. 3 you're going to have a hard time getting one.
