The iPhone 5 is currently sold in 31 countries and by December the number will have risen to 100 so will this situation change soon?
Some of Apple’s major suppliers initially had problems supplying key components of the iPhone 5 such as the new in-cell display technology , but once these were overcome, the real funnel has been Foxconn , the company in charge of its assembly and which has now offered the Wall Street Journal some statements about the iPhone 5 shortage and the scratching problem .
Foxconn’s representative also confirmed that the company has taken the necessary actions to improve the manufacturing process and avoid the scratches on the aluminium with which some terminals were leaving the factory, something that has also slowed down production.
After about three weeks of using the black iPhone 5 without a case, my phone is still in perfect condition, but the problem is definitely . Just as it’s virtually impossible to find an iPod with a chrome back without scratches, the only solution to prevent the same thing from happening to our brand new phone is to use a case or take good care of it. In my case, dedicating a trouser pocket exclusively to it seems to be enough.
