Sharp Is Preparing To Start Production Of Retina Displays For iPhone 5S

On May 14, 2013

Despite the fact that Sharp puts hopes in Samsung to save it from bankruptcy, Retina displays for the iPhone 5S is expected to enter production in the Asian company next month. The information comes from the people at Reuters, who in recent days have spoken about the problems that Sharp encounters, and about the management steps the company takes to save it from bankruptcy. Sharp stopped production in January for the 9.7 inch screens for the iPad, but Apple still needs Retina Displays for iPhones, so they are keeping Sharp as a partner.

In January, Sharp had to curtail production of 9.7-inch iPad screens, hurting output levels and threatening its recovery in profitability. The Japanese company is preparing to begin large-scale production next month of screens for Apple’s next iPhone model, the sources said.

Information on the start of production of Retina Displays for iPhone 5S in June is not new, we already knew what some of Apple’s plans, but now we have a new confirmation. If screens enters into production next month, the launch of the iPhone 5S in the fall seems more secure, people from Apple are going to present iOS 7 in the opening keynote of WWDC 2013, operating system being released in beta for developers and tested until September.
