iPhone 15 release date get delayed
Wamsi Mohan, a global securities analyst at Bank of America, said that the series of iPhone 15 release date may be postponed until the fourth quarter of this year. Apple may thus have its iPhone announcement event somewhere between October and December. However, the analyst has been unable to identify the particular reason for this delay.
Problems with the New Display
One of the key issues causing this delay is related to the availability of displays for certain iPhone models. According to a report by The Information, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models will be in limited supply at the launch due to difficulties with screen manufacturing at LG Display. The problem arose because a new manufacturing process was used to reduce the bezel size of the display, similar to what occurred with the Apple Watch 7 display, which also led to a one-month sales delay.

The unique problem with the iPhone 15 Pro model display is that reliability tests were failed after it was fused to the metal body. Apple is collaborating with LG, the company that makes these screens, to fix this issue and make the necessary adjustments so that they pass the essential testing.
It should be emphasized that the source claims the series of iPhone 15 release date will still be released on schedule in September despite the display problems. The precise timing of the launch has been clouded by these contradicting claims.
It’s worth recalling that Apple unveiled its iPhone 14 series on September 7 last year. However, the iPhone 14 Plus was introduced a month later due to production disruptions caused by lockdowns in China at manufacturing sites.
The iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max are the four versions that Apple expects to introduce this year under the iPhone 15 series.
