A new report from KGI states that production of the new iPHone X has improved , but only from 2 to 3 million units by launch day.
The problem persists in 3 bottlenecks that are occurring on the assembly line, namely with components of the TrueDepth camera, another with the rear camera lens and finally an antenna board.
Yesterday we told you how Apple had indicated that suppliers would start receiving the new iPhone X in mid-November , where the units seem to be very scarce, both for suppliers and for the Apple Store.
KGI says that production of the iPhone X could stabilise well around Q1 in 2018 , where delivery delays would be lower than we expect this year.
Apple even would have reduced the production of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus by almost half to focus almost exclusively on the iPhone X, where a historic sales volume is expected.
On the planned launch date, Apple is expected to sell between 30 and 35 million iPhone X units at least . Last week, a shipment of some 46,500 iPhone Xs arrived in Europe and the Middle East.
One insufficient quantity to meet the demand, which combines two important factors, the high demand for Apple’s new flagship and the low production it is currently in.
Possibly, the reservations of October 27th, will suffer some weeks of delay a few minutes after the opening of the reservation system that Apple will open next October 27th at 09:01 in the morning.
So, although Apple has improved the production of the iPhone X , it is still insufficient for the great demand, coinciding for the first time, in a worldwide launch.
Do you think there will really be a stock problem for the new iPhone X? Will you try to book it next October 27th?
