We all know that Japan’s tsunami disaster has definitely struck hard and it has not only affected Japan, but it will change the climatic conditions all over the world. However, Japan’s tsunami disaster might affect Apple as well as they might not be able to come up with their new Apple iPhone 5 on the right time. It was speculated that Apple might come up with their new iPhone 5 model in June or July this year, but things are not looking good on Apple’s frontier as they have lot of remaining work to do on the production floor.
Apple has been trying hard to make iPhone 5 a phenomenal success and therefore they are trying to club some of the best iPhone features together in iPhone 5. Hence, Apple decided to go for an 8 mega pixel camera for the new version of iPhone. However, things went wrong for them as they had ordered their camera sensors from OmniVision Technologies that has their headquarters in Japan. Now, with most of the factories closed and employees not coming up to work it looks like the production will go a bit slower than expected.
There have been no comments from Apple about whether there will be a delay or not. Many people feel that Apple will probably keep quiet at the moment and if possible try to come up with another supplier that can provide them with quality camera sensors that can live up to the expectations. So far, there has been no news from Sony who used to earlier supply camera sensors to Apple. With so much work pending under the sleeve, it certainly looks like that Japan’s natural disaster has definitely affected the release of Apple iPhone 5 and the company would delay the release of their new mobile phone.
