Fans of the Cupertino-company cannot wait for the iPhone 7 that is about to be unveiled in a couple of weeks. However, other news outlets say that the new Apple variant may have a shortage problem in time of its release in September.

Supply Problems for iPhone 7 in its Release

Business Insider reports that fans of the iPhone 7 cannot automatically buy the new smartphone in its launch due to a shortage problem with Apple latest flagship phone. Reasons for this is that Apple's suppliers are having trouble with making the components for the dual lens and the waterproof system that will be added to the iPhone 7. Also, if Apple followed its release date with the previous variants last year, the iPhone 7 might have a low supply in the beginning of the launch as some suppliers are trying to fix the low yield rates of their components.

Meanwhile, Apple also has a dropped in sales for the past two quarters of this year. The company has experienced a major dropped in the demand with the upcoming iPhone 7 it's because of the lack of new features in the new models.

The report further explained that Apple's placemen orders in the US are very conservative and the company's panel orders for the iPhone 7 are dropping around 20% in year-over-year. Which leaves one major suppliers such as Japan Display hungry for more orders.

iPhone 7 Release Date

The confirmed release of the iPhone 7 has just been announced all over the web with a Twitter post from Evan Blass, a well-known tipster for Apple variants. The tipster is confident that the Apple flagship will release on September 16. Pre-orders of the iPhone 7 online are expected to start on September 9.

September 7 is still the big day that fans of the iPhone 7 will not miss out as the new variant will be presented to the public. For more iPhone 7 news and update stay tuned to Gamenguide!
