Apple slashes iPhone X production targets

How to Stop Auto Software Update on iPhone/iPad iOS 11.3 features: Better AR, new Animojis and a Health App update
Mandy Jefferson | 31 January, 2018, 06:19

While reports continue to circulate over the lack of iPhoneX popularity, more details on sales and the outlook for the smartphone should be revealed when Apple releases its fourth quarter earnings results on February 1.

Slowing sales of the iPhone X has prompted Apple to half the production target for its £999 flagship phone.

The figure is slightly better than KGI's revised forecast of 18 million.

On the surface, the Nikkei Asian Review's report that Apple is slashing second-quarter iPhone X output by 50 percent (from 40 million to 20 million) is certainly jarring.

One of the mains reasons for this is said to be the price.

Kuo's analysis seems to be heavily based on Apple's rollout of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X in 2017. Analysts believe that the cost is not sustainable and reducing it will only sabotage the sales of other devices.

The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will play the role of the successor to the 5.8-inch iPhone X. It also paves the path for the upcoming new jumbo-sized 6.5-inch "iPhone X Plus" featuring the edge-to-edge OLED display. As for the iPhone X Plus, it will come with a 3300 or 2400mAh beefy battery, while the iPhone X SE will have a 2950mAh battery. Users would have to learn how the phone works again and this proved somewhat hectic.

Apple shares are falling after another report that the company ordered a large cut in iPhone X production.

In a new research note Kuo says that both devices will get 4GB of RAM and use a two-cell, L-shaped battery design. Kuo indicates that Apple might not have enough development resources to be in charge of launching another iPhone.

After apologizing to customers in December, the company started offering replacement batteries to all customers with iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 handsets for $29.

The change in plans was announced by Apple VP of software engineering Craig Federighi to employees earlier this month, according to Axios. Presumably, Apple would continue to offer the 4.7-inch iPhone 8, but that would feature older components.

The cheapest iPhone of the lot will be the iPhone X SE.
