Apple changes supplier for the construction of iPad screens? – Macitynet.it
Apple would have changed companies to supply touch-sensitive displays integrated into the iPad. According to rumors that come from the East, Cupertino would have moved the orders initially assigned to TPK Touch Solutions, now turning to the longtime partner Wintek. The new indiscretions that as always start from the Taiwanese IT world are reported by DigiTimes, then taken up by the main sites dedicated to Mac and western technology.
Still according to rumors, the delays and the number of iPads being delivered, lower than Apple's plans for the launch, would be due precisely to problems on the TPK production lines. On the other hand, Wintek has lines already equipped for the construction of these components, in addition, the company plans to open new factories in China that will allow it to satisfy even higher demands and quantities.
In the opinion of Taiwanese insiders, Wintek's current production capacity is already sufficient to meet ongoing requests, in any case the manufacturer intends to enhance production because he is optimistic about the requests not only for iPad but also for other similar devices that will hit the market in the coming months.
