The iPhone 15 Pro Models Are Already Having Display Production Issues

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro lineups later this year but the latter could be very hard to buy, we’re told.

That’s because Apple’s display supplier is thought to be having issues getting the displays built for Apple’s best iPhones.

That’s according to a report by The Information which cites people with direct knowledge of the manufacturing issue. That issue is afflicting LG Display, with the displays for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max proving problematic because of a new design. That design will allow for displays that have smaller bezels than previous models.

Apple is reportedly making changes to the design to help.

One person with direct knowledge said the LG-made displays have failed reliability tests after it goes through a new process known as low injection pressure overmolding or LIPO. The process involves Apple fusing the display into its metal shell prior to assembly. Apple is repeatedly tweaking the design of LG’s display so that it can pass the tests.

Apple could choose to delay the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max launches, but the report says that’s unlikely. Rather, Apple will release the iPhones at the same times as the non-Pro models but simply have fewer of them available for people to purchase.

The current expectation is that Apple will announce the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro lineups in September.
