The production ofiPhone X has not yet reached its maximum capacity. Apple would keep it idle to avoid ending up with excess inventory. A rumor contrasting with the previous ones.
As a reminder, the iPhone X is a new model in the range of smartphones from Apple. He is the first to adopt a screen OLED, and abandon the Home / Touch ID button. The device is unlocked using Face ID facial recognition. The tenth anniversary iPhone has 3D and infrared sensors, which are located at the phone’s front camera.
DigiTimes reports that production of this year’s iPhone X is slowing. Apple would have asked its suppliers to deliver only 40% of the components of the phone, compared to what was originally planned. According to the Taiwanese daily, the apple brand would wait for the end of pre-orders before fully launching production. With this strategy, the American technology giant wants to avoid ending up with a stock that exceeds demand, as was the case with the iPhone 6S.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo estimates that 40 to 50 million iPhone Xs could be pre-ordered worldwide. However, stocks would be quite limited during the first months of distribution.
