Expect delays on the more delays on iPhone X

  • Expect delays on the more delays on iPhone X

How many iPhone users will opt to buy an iPhone 8 when they could get the iPhone X? The information of the production delay is coming from Raymond James chip analyst Christopher Caso after conducting supply chain checks. IPhone 8 production might need to be reduced and "the iPhone X production ramp might not be able to meet demand in December and March quarters", Zhang said. Pre-orders for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus have been far below expectations not only in the USA but across the globe. A recent report said that Apple would struggle well into 2018 to fulfill orders. So, instead of coming with a follow-up for the iPhone 7, Apple has simply made a decision to instead introduce the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, along with the very expensive X. When the iPhone 7 Plus was released last fall, it started at a retail value of $799 with a 32 GB model, whereas the newly redesigned iPhone X starts with 64 GB at its starting price.

iPhone X brings with it landmark changes to the whole design and layout part of iPhone.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are set to launch tomorrow. For example, at the listed price of $1,249 for an iPhone 8 256GB, you'd pay just $999.20 for a brand new handset.

Kuo has also added that if Face ID is appreciated by consumers, Apple's Android rivals may also introduce smartphones with facial recognition feature.

Apple's (AAPL) upcoming flagship smartphone, the iPhone X, is likely to be in short supply when it officially becomes available on November 3, a Wall Street analyst says.

"Initial feedback from our meetings suggests that final production of iPhone X has not yet begun, with production expected to commence in mid-October". Both the front and rear cameras support the Portrait Lighting feature. The smartphone will be available for pre-booking on various e-commerce website including Flipkart, Amazon, Infibeam and various authorised Apple outlets across the country.

The shares have fallen in the wake of the new product announcements, in part over concern about the higher prices. The other two iPhones - iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus - launched at the September 12 Apple event too are not going on sale in India in the first wave.
