However, Peter Misek, an analyst at Jefferies, said that concerns about the screens with better definition for the iPad were unfounded because suppliers of Apple increased the production.
"Despite widespread concerns, we believe that there will be enough screens for the new iPad," said Misek, who raised the price target for Apple shares to $ 699.
