Apple cancels iPhone XR production boost, claims report
Nov 07, 2018, 02:04
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.

"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.
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.
