Apple will not kill the iPhone X this year – Report

Apple will slash its production target for the iPhone X in the three-month period by half from January from the more than 40 million units envisaged at the time of its release in November.

The report goes on to cite "slower than expected sales" during the important holiday shopping quarter, which, in combination with Apple's eleventh-hour attempts to truly ramp up iPhone X production, has merely resulted in inventories of the handset "swelling up".

The iPhone SE gave Apple's 4-inch line of iPhones a new life in 2016, but a noted Apple analyst does not believe that will be the case in 2018. Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst from KGI Securities is shining some light on the 2018 line up bearing the iPhone X name.

Trump has been publicly pressuring McCabe for months and has claimed that McCabe has an anti-Trump bias. Trump also reportedly berated McCabe over the political donations his wife received from McAuliffe.

"After the first wave of demand has been fulfilled, the market now worries that the high price of the iPhone X may weaken demand in the first quarter", Zhang wrote. The iPhone X may have been the best-selling smartphone of the Christmas quarter, but sales momentum was apparently lost after that.

Some of the things that were reiterated in this latest report were firstly that all of the new phones will have no home button at all and will include the, sometimes criticized, notch for TrueDepth sensors. Unsurprisingly, the iPhone X Plus is also anticipated to have a 25 percent larger battery capacity of 3,300-3,400 mAh. Following a downgrade to an investment recommendation for Sony last week, other iPhone X-related Japanese electronic parts manufacturers also saw their share prices decline. For starters, it leaves fans of compact phones without much of a choice, since the smallest phone Apple will introduce this year would have a 5.8-inch display. With the home button gone, this essentially signals the end of the era of the design that Apple kept throughout all the models of the iPhone from the first one back in 2007 till the iPhone 8 released in 2017.
