If you’re thinking of picking up a shiny new iPhone 6 on launch day, you may have to reset your expectations. According to a new report, Apple’s suppliers are having trouble producing enough screens for at least one of the two expected devices, which could seriously limit availability.

Based on what two supply chain sources told Reuters, Apple wanted to initially use only one layer of backlight film on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in order to make it as thin as possible. But when the panel wasn’t bright enough, the company reversed course. The resulting delay could mean fewer devices on store shelves, at least during the first weeks after launch.

The good news for shoppers is that output is reportedly back on track and “suppliers are working flat out to make up for lost time.” Those partners include Japan Display, Sharp, and LG Display. Apple is also reportedly debuting a larger 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6, which was expected to go into mass production after the 4.7-inch model.
