Apple’s iPhone 5 is experiencing a shortfall in supply due to its thinner, lighter touchscreen, according to a report from Bloomberg. The phone’s in-cell screen technology, which combines the display and touch sensor, is facing production constraints as manufacturers LG Display and Japan Display Inc. have struggled to meet high demand. Although Apple has also enlisted Sharp Corp. to help manufacture the displays, Sharp wasn’t able to start shipments before the iPhone 5’s launch. The report also speculates that delays from Qualcomm in making LTE chips could lead to shortages.
