Apple’s iPhone 5S may be delayed because of issues with Apple’s new fingerprint technology, according to Reuters…

Are you ready for the next generation iPhone? According to Reuters Apple isn’t ready to hand over its new tech. Japanese and Taiwanese suppliers told Reuters that the Apple iPhone 5S may be delayed because of issues with Apple’s new fingerprint technology.

✔ Sources say iPhone 5S production was suppose to begin in June 2013 but may be delayed because of manufacturing issues on the hardware side.

✔ According to one source Apple is building a fingerprint sensor into the phone but is having trouble with a coating material so that it does not interfere with its fingerprint-biometrics hardware.

✔ Apple iPhone fingerprint technology issues are not new; however, it was not clear when those reports surfaced, if the technology would be making its debut in the near future.

✔ The fingerprint technology delay appears to be affecting iPhone 5S production that is slated to incorporate this new security feature.

✔ According to one Japanese supplier, production on the low-cost iPhone will start in May, 2013, and then scale in scope starting in June.

✔ Both the iPhone 5S and low-cost iPhone are believed to rely on 4-inch displays, although the low-cost option does not include the fingerprint technology, and is built with cheaper plastic body components.

✔ Report states that while the iPhone 5 was a quick seller, those sales figures were below analysts expectations and have therefore led suppliers to look for new partnerships.

✔ Apple will release its Q1 2013 financials on Tuesday morning. That report will finally reveal if rumors about Apple’s demand struggles are in fact correct.

✔ In the meantime the Samsung Galaxy S4 is in DELAY Mode, and HTC, one step from BK, are likely to provide the Apple iPhone 5S with plenty of competition during the summer, fall and winter months.
