It seems like this year, things aren’t looking pretty for the folks over at Apple. First, we saw them actually lose their amazing factor with the COVID-19 spread and no events. Then we saw that there were delays in the iPhone 12 production. Then, there were quality control issues, and so on. Now though, there seems to be another problem afoot and Kuo, the analyst on top of everything Apple, has pointed it out. The news was reported in an article from 9to5Mac and it had some surprising things to say.

Now, we see right off the bat that the company would face delays in the iPhone production lineup due to quality control issues. Here, the analyst comments that there may be certain delays. According to the article, one of the manufacturers for the camera module of the phone has messed up. In their testing phase, they saw that under heat and pressure, the modules cracked. This was especially the case with the wide-angle modules for the non-Pro models for the iPhone 12. Both the sizes faced these issues. thankfully, Apple has multiple manufacturers and they would not see a delay in the release.
One thing that can be caught by this is that there will be issues in the supply. Of course, the phones altogether would be delayed for a couple of weeks, they would be making the phones. But, the supply line, in the delay from the missing modules would mean that less number of devices would be ready in time. Apple would also pay less money to the manufacturer for the modules now, because of the distress caused to the Multi-billionaire company.
