After the launch of the new Apple iPhone 5, the company is facing a huge demand for the product. However, suppliers are facing problems keeping up with the growing demand. Due to this situation, many people have been waiting for weeks for their phone to arrive.
Taiwan’s Foxconn Technology Group, which manufactures Apple’s iPhones, said that its Hon Hai unit is finding it difficult to deal with the demand of the iPhone 5. In the opening weekend, more than 5 million units were sold and the number is believed to have gone up since then, but due to supply issues, this pace has not been very rapid. The thinner body and thinner touchscreen are the reasons why it has become difficult to manufacture iPhone 5.
