According to the Apple’s upcoming plans for the display component shipments, it is reported that Apple’s iPad 2 display is not on the good track, and they will not be able to meet the requirement of Apple.
Therefore, Apple has planned to cut down the orders for the iPad 2 display shipments and increased the orders for the iPad 3 display, which is said to be eating the iPad 2 display quota at the moment iPad 3 is rumored to be getting a Retina Display, and Apple has also planned to adopt the iPhone 4 launch strategy, on which they cut down the price of iPhone 3GS and lesser the orders of iPhone 3GS components from the providers.
