Trouble at TPK may hint at iWatch production issues

updated 12:35 pm EDT, Tue July 29, 2014

Effect on launch schedules uncertain

Changes in profit forecasts at TPK may signal delays in iWatch production, reports suggest. Taiwanese publication UDN notes that TPK -- thought to be making touch modules for the iWatch -- has pushed back a predicted third-quarter profit surge into the next quarter. Since suppliers often experience such surges in association with Apple orders, it could mean that iWatch production has suffered setbacks. TPK also provides touch components for devices like the iPhone and iPad, however.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has himself previously claimed that iWatch production could be pushed into November. Apple is widely expected to announce the product in October though, which may mean that people will not only have to wait for the product to ship, but that it will only ship in extremely limited quantities at first.

    These "analysts" are full of it. They have no idea what is really going on.
