Apple is already facing problems with the new retina display of the new iPad. Due to a demand higher than expected, the fragile supply of retina display is putting Apple in danger as the company will not be able to keep up with the orders they are taking for the tablet.
The Retina Display is responsible for the super high resolution of the new iPad, a resolution at 2048 x 1536, offering about 3.1 million pixels or 264 pixels per inch. This is four times better than the iPad 2 and there are also a million more pixels in the new iPad than in a HDTV.
The fragile retina display manufacturing industry is the problem Apple is having here, as the company cannot count on many suppliers due to how limited the market currently is. According to NPD DisplaySearch, out of all the technologies used for screens today, retina is the one that presents a challenge to manufacture.
The displays being used by Apple are reportedly being produced by Sharp, LG and Samsung, and Sharp is having some difficulties as the producing proccess is not very fast as it should be to keep up with the current demand for the new iPad.
If things continue like this, the new iPad might have some time off the market.
