The thin new iMac computers unveiled by Apple on October 23 may not see store shelves this holiday season.
That is because difficulties in manufacturing may push the release of the new iMac computers to next year.
According to the French blog, Apple’s manufacturing partners are having a hard time cranking up production of the new iMac computers.
Apparently, the new friction stir welding method used for the new iMacs is what’s causing all the difficulties.
This is in line with previous comments from Apple CEO Tim Cook who said there will be a “significant shortage” for the new iMacs.
Friction stir welding has been implemented by Apple in the new iMac computers to create a flawless link between the aluminum panels of the new models the company unveiled last month.
