Apple slices iPhone X production targets after sales slowdown

Source Apple

Apple's newest iPhone and iPad software - iOS 11- has been particularly riddled with bugs, which Apple has continued to fix throughout the past year. However, some analysts have denied that any such thing is about to happen.

Trusted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has cast a shadow of doubt over the prospect of an iPhone SE 2 launch in 2018.

But another one, which has made its way to the market is that there may only be some minor update, if at all something comes up. The specifications will be the kind that any Tom, Dick or Harry can avail. Despite being ridiculously expensive, the 10th anniversary model of iPhones introduced some never-seen-before features like the Face ID with 3D facial recognition technology, edge-to-edge screen, and the TrueDepth camera.

Apple has slipped 6.11% in the last week and is down 3.32% so far this year. Then there are three more which are slated to come to shelves this year.




If you were counting on a new iPhone SE arriving this spring, maybe it's time to start making alternative plans.

Privately Apple believe that the development of their own processors which they believe will be superior to offerings from Intel and Qualcomm will give them a distinct advantage over arch rival Samsung. Yet all this is mere speculation. The current iPhone SE looks a lot like the iPhone 5s, being powered by an A9 chip and having 2GB of RAM. Apple has had a couple of excellent quarters, thanks to renewed iPhone sales growth. And with all the three iPhones now with a design like the iPhone X, the process of manufacturing might be even more cumbersome.

Next up, industry research firm Kantar says the iPhone X was one of the top three best selling smartphones for December 2017 in the U.S., Japan, and Europe.

Kuo said demand for the latest iPhone model has been weaker than expected because of various issues such as the relatively small size of its screen.
