Apple cancels iPhone XR production boost, claims report

According to a Nikkei source, Apple's decision to reduce iPhone XR production came alongside an additional order of 5 million units for its older iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. "The moves to add orders for year-old iPhone models while suspending extra production for the latest product illustrates Apple's lack of innovation and inability to energize consumers with such a pricing strategy". According to Nikkei, this means that Foxconn will be producing almost 100,000 units less every day based on the new forecasts available.

Apple announced it has taken $62.9bn (£48.2bn) in revenue for Q4 2018, an increase of 20 per cent ($52.5m) year-on-year. Apple is widely considered to be Foxconn's biggest customer, but other stocks of its suppliers were hit worse.

In other middleweight action, rising star Israel Adesanya remained unbeaten by knocking out Derek Brunson in the first round. One of the most genuine and honest people in sports, Cormier heaped praised upon Lewis' power, but it was never a factor.

Apple shares fell almost 4 percent after a report signaled that its new, lower-priced iPhone XR might not be selling as well as expected.

Tung also insisted that Pegatron is capable of raising its workforce in China several times in a period of 2-3 weeks to accommodate major product launch by clients. "The utilization for the XR production is not reaching its maximum capacity now", Nikkei's source stated. "Starting with iOS 12.1, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X include this feature, but performance management may be less noticeable due to their more advanced hardware and software design", reads the support page.

He said that after a few seconds it appeared to lose control and crashed into the auto park just a few hundred metres away. Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha is believed to be the only family member who attended the 1-1 draw on Saturday night.

Although Apple never said as much when it launched the Apple iPhone XR in September, its fairly obvious the device is meant to be more a direct competitor with the Android market. Apple has also asked smaller iPhone assembler Wistron to be on standby for rush orders. Apple planned to sell 20 million of these two during this quarter, but that number has now jumped to 25 million. Apple's willingness to raise its prices across the board is a testament to just how strong a product the iPhone X was. And then there is the "affordable" iPhone XR that starts at Rs 76,900 for base model, and goes all the way up to Rs 91,900.
