Report: Production issues could affect Apple's release of new iPhone

NORWALK -

Manufacturing issues could complicate Apple's rollout of its newest iPhone, according to reports by The Wall Street Journal.

The 10th anniversary iPhone is set for release Tuesday, but the phone is facing major production delays.

The model could end up costing as much as $999, but production hiccups could cause supply shortfalls and shipping delays in the coming months.

The Wall Street Journal says it stems from Apple's decision to build new phones using OLED screens, similar to those used by rival Samsung.
