Ming-Chi Kuo is an analyst with KGI Securities who is typically accurate when it comes to predicting events in Apple's future. So when he says something it is usually worth paying attention to, and Kuo's latest information is no different. The analyst says that production on the upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been delayed for one to two weeks.

Apple has already instructed its suppliers to cut back on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus production, but with the s models now delayed they will not enter manufacturing until the end of this month. Apple is expected to unveil the handsets during September with a launch later that month, leaving the company little time to ramp up production to retail levels.

Kuo says that once again, Foxconn will be handling the bulk of production, around 60%, and the company will now have to schedule overtime for its employees to meet Apple's demands and to counter the delay.
