If you were hoping to snag a new iPhone 6 after its introduction in early September, you may have to wait a bit. According to a Reuters’ report, Apple suppliers are “scrambling” to make sure there are enough screens for the newest iPhone. The problem stems from the need to redesign a key component, which disrupted production of the panels, supply chain sources said. The article goes on to say that it still is not clear whether the “hiccup” would delay the launch or limit the number of phones initially available.

Apple has a scheduled media event for September 9 and many industry observers expect it to unveil a two new iPhone models, both with bigger screens.
