Everyone’s favorite Taiwanese tech website is back with a pair of rumors claiming that favored Apple manufacturer Foxconn is getting hit with a double whammy of both component and labor shortages which are creating headaches for supplying iPhones and iPads alike.
Securing a contract to provide Apple components for its iOS devices is only half the battle -- you’ve got to keep pushing the envelope or Cupertino might look elsewhere. That appears to be the case with the iPhone’s ambient light sensor, according to reports out of the Far East.
Could the long-rumored Verizon iPhone actually have been something of an underachiever? That seems to be what one report is claiming, with Apple reportedly slashing production orders for the handset by half.
Remember those rumors about a Retina Display-equipped iPad 3 coming later this year? Well, just walk on by, nothing to see here -- as it turns out, component suppliers are now saying that such talk is much ado about nothing.
