“Soon after Apple delayed shipments of its big screen 27-inch iMac, various users have begun to report from AppleCare technicians that a second fix for screen flickering affecting the hardware is due within 3 weeks,” AppleInsider reports.
“In a thread on the Apple Discussions forums that spans nearly 250 pages, users have begun to report conversations with AppleCare representatives who claim a new update is forthcoming,” AppleInsider reports. “A month ago, Apple released a software fix for the flickering issue on the 27-inch iMac, but since then users have said it did not address the problem.”
AppleInsider reports, “One user, Dennis Murphy, said he was told that AppleCare technicians were issued a bulletin on Saturday that stated a fix would be released in about three weeks. The Apple employee was allegedly instructed to collect customer contact information so they can be reached when the fix is released.”
“When contacted by AppleInsider [on] Monday, an Apple representative said the three-week delay was not related to any hardware issues,” AppleInsider reports. “Instead, they said the company has had trouble meeting up with demand for the new system, as some components are in limited availability.”
