Apple’s (AAPL) much rumored HDTV was expected to debut in 2013, but a new report suggests manufacturing issues have pushed the television’s launch back to sometime next year. In a note to investors picked up by ValueWalk on Tuesday, Jefferies & Company analyst Peter Misek pumped the brakes following his claim last year that Apple would hold a press conference in March 2013 to unveil its own-brand HDTV. Misek says panel suppliers LG Display and Sharp are having problems ”achieving yield on the displays,” which has caused the delay. The analyst gives Apple’s “iWatch” a 50% shot at launching this year though, and he thinks it will sport a 1-inch display and a $200 price tag.
