That 2018 iPhone with the LCD screen might not ship until October

Rumor has it you'll have to wait a bit for the rumored budget-friendly iPhone.

Add another data point to the heaping pile of rumors about the iPhones Apple may announce in September.

According to Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty, we may not see the new, least-expensive 6.1-inch model until October. That's thanks to possible quality-control issues with the screen's backlight.

As quoted in Barron's as part of larger speculation on Apple's stock performance, she says:

We currently see no delay in the ramp of Apple's upcoming flagship 5.8-inch or 6.5-inch OLED iPhones. However suspected issues with LED backlight leakage have caused a one-month delay in mass production of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, although this is down from a six-week delay baked into the original production forecast, according to suppliers.

That follows on the  BusinessKorea report from May which predicted the phone would have a MLCD+ display, similar to the new LG G7 ThinQ

We asked Apple to comment on this rumor about a delay to a rumored product but, unsurprisingly, did not hear back immediately.
