Apple cancelled the additional production of iPhone XR due to poor demand

Report: Apple cancels iPhone XR production boost The iPhone XR is reportedly not selling as well as Apple and analysts predicted

That sent the smartphone manufacturer's suppliers down across Asia, while Apple's stock looks set for further declines - falling 0.5% in premarket trading on Tuesday morning. However, the update also brought the Performance Management for the battery to iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X. The feature is enabled by default and will start throttling performance as soon as it detects a drop in consistency from the power reserve.

"If the reports are accurate, we do find it somewhat disturbing that this would take place so early after the launch of the iPhone XR", Angelo Zino, an analyst at CFRA, said of the Nikkei report. While "XR production is not reaching its maximum capacity now" sounds bad on the face of it, for the end user who wants to order an iPhone today and get one tomorrow.

According to Nikkei, Apple has told smartphone assemblers Pegatron and Foxconn to halt plans for additional production lines that they were to dedicate to the iPhone XR.

The $749 model is Apple's budget iPhone, and at a few hundred dollars cheaper than the flagship XS and XS Max was meant to stir consumer interest among more cost-conscious buyers.

Iran will sell its oil despite U.S. sanctions - President Rouhani
On Sunday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared on " Fox News Sunday ". "We love all nations and all people of the world". He said "economic warfare" was a final bid by Washington to overthrow the Islamic republic after decades of failed attempts.


"Suppliers of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are getting a combined order of around 5 million more units".

As for Wistron, Apple has asked the smaller iPhone assembler to stand by for rush orders, but supply chain sources claim the company will in fact receive none for the XR this holiday season. Originally Apple had ordered 20 million of the last generation model but has since raised the order to 25 million.

Tied to this is the unexpected news that demand of the previous-generation iPhone 8, which Apple still sells, has jumped. With more customers choosing less expensive and older iPhones, Apple will have trouble raising the average selling price (ASP) of the device lineup, in keeping with its new strategy, which I call "Apple Jacks".

First off, it's hard to know if any of this is true, and now that Apple has stated that it will stop disclosing unit sales, we might never know.
