Out of the three new iPhones that Apple will unveil in mid-September, the cheapest and most wanted version will be supposedly delayed because of alleged yield issues with the phone’s most important component. That would be the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone X successor if you were wondering, which various sources say that you won’t be able to buy at launch in late September. Screen manufacturing issues are to blame so you can expect the handset to launch a few weeks later.
But, over the weekend, a new issue that may delay the 2018 iPhone launch came to light. A virus attack on TSMC, which provides one of the most critical iPhone and iPad components, the processor, took out the Taiwanese company, affecting overall production.
