Apple to halve iPhone X output on weak holiday sales

Apple will not kill the iPhone X this year – Report

Best not get too attached to the iPhone X branding, though, as there's a chance the next-generation model will leave the factory under a different moniker.

Apple's stock dipped slightly in premarket trading Monday after a report said it would halve production for the iPhone X in the first three months of 2018.

The period spans from October through December, covering the early November release of the iPhone X and the holiday shopping season that typically brings Apple's biggest iPhone sales of the year. Kuo is claiming that the iPhone X will still have a $1,000USD price point with the iPhone X Plus being higher, most likely around the $1,200 to $1,350 range.

One of the main reasons for the iPhone X's lackluster performance seems to be the price.

PARIS-Must France simply get used to flooding? Joao De Macedo said residents of the building he manages all left three days ago. Tunnels, roads and the bottom floor of the Louvre have been closed as the French capital prepares itself for more flooding.

The report added to growing concerns about weak sales of the US$999 phone, making investors jittery about the company's financial outlook when it reports first-quarter results on Thursday. As the iPhone X is presumed to reach the end of life in the middle of this year, the company would sell around 62 million units total, significantly lower than the previous KGI forecast of 80 million units throughout this year.

Both iPhone X models will have 4GB of RAM while the 6.1-inch iPhone will feature a 3GB of RAM.

Kuo expects all three models to launch without any delays, given Apple's supply chain will be well experienced with iPhone X production by the time of release. The iPhone X Plus is also expected to have up to a 25 per cent larger battery capacity of 3300-3400mAh. Every year there's some publication trying to make it sound like Apple's iPhone business is in trouble because Apple is adjusting for season order adjustment. More details on the iPhone X SE is that it won't be coming with the "L" shaped battery like the current iPhone X has and it will be an LCD display instead of an OLED display, not have the dual camera set up, and will apparently lose the 3D Touch technology.
