Matt Margolis, Wall Street Forensics:
The plan as of a â€œweeks agoâ€ was to include a sapphire covered iPhone 6 in yesterdayâ€™s launch. The issue that emerged is that the finishers were still having trouble creating the sapphire edges and yields were only at 25% or less.
I have been told the issue was not on GTâ€™s side of the house but solely resides within the finishers involved in the process (Biel and Lens Tech).
Perhaps next year, with the iPhone 6s.
