Report: 3D camera improvements slowing down iPhone X production

Well-connected KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims Apple suppliers are having trouble shipping the TrueDepth camera components the company needs to produce the iPhone X, MacRumors reports. “The 3D sensing (TrueDepth camera) on iPhone X is composed of a structured-light system, time-of-flight system and a front-facing camera, which represents a far more complex structure than those of rivals,” Kuo said in a note to investors. “It will therefore be harder to achieve mass production.” Kuo sees production finally ramping up in mid-October, but with pre-orders slated to begin on October 27, Kuo thinks the iPhone X will likely be in very limited supply for a few months at least.
