Production of 13-Inch Retina MacBook Pro and Updated iMacs Reportedly Ramping Up
By on September 10th, 2012

Late last month, NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim claimed that suppliers had begun production on 2,560 by 1,600 high resolution displays for a rumored 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. Today, Digitimes reports that full production on the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is on its way with shipments from Apple’s supply chain beginning to ramp up ahead of a speculated September or October launch.

The report also claims that production on updated iMacs are ramping up. Digitimes also reports that Apple maybe facing difficulties with its high-end iMac models. If Apple is indeed encountering difficulties with new displays, it is unclear on how the company will handle the launch.

As for the iMac, Apple originally planned to release three new models with upgraded panels and CPUs, but due to poor yields of the panels, the mass production of the high-end model, has been postponed, without any launch schedule. The other two models – targeting the mid-range and entry-level segments – saw shipment volumes from the supply chain increase in September.

Digitimes’s track record is known to be unreliable, but it does sometimes offer correct information and guidance on other reports.
