Apple Still Facing Further Production Issues With iPhone X

Share:

Even though Apple will begin taking orders for the iPhone X in a month, final production for the device has yet to begin.

Raymond James chip analyst Christopher Caso conducted supply chain checks earlier this morning and shared what he learned about Apple’s production schedule in an investor’s note obtained by Barron’s.

Caso said that even though there were already production delays affecting the device, further delays have occurred recently. According to the investor’s note, iPhone X production will start in mid-October, with full production ramp up being delayed to December.

We’ve already known the iPhone X is going to be severely constrained, but hints of further delays suggest supplies could be more restricted than originally thought.

With the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus seemingly not garnering as much interest from customers, it seems there could be quite a lot of Apple fans who are waiting for the iPhone X.

    I bet that ‘notch’ in the screen is making the glass cutting pretty annoying for manufacturers. I may never know what inspired Apple to do something so ridiculous.

    Steve Jobs would never have approved the notch in the screen.

    These morons just realized that no one is going to buy the new 8 when there is a better X, so they’re either slowing down production on the X or releasing false stories about production delays so that people who need a new phone will just take the 8. Guess Steve Jobs actually was a smart guy and thats why he refused to give consumers choices in apple products. Release 1 great product and if someone doesnt like it or cant afford it, don’t buy it. He must be rolling in his grave.

    “No one is going to buy the 8″… Is a rediculous statement. As is the fan boy notion that the X is going to be better. My belief is that the X will be a lemon and Apple will scramble to correct its inherent usability issues in the next version.

    I think you took the “no one” a little too literally in my comment, obviously people are going to buy the 8, but as other articles have illustrated, the pre-order demand is way below the usual for a new apple device. The X being better is not a fan boy notion, its a fact. The X’s display is better, the resolution is better, the camera is better, whereas there is nothing on the 8 that is rated better than on the X.
    I will agree with you though with regards to the usability issues. I’ve found in the past that in totally redesigned products it may be better to stay away from the first generation, as it is normally the one with the issues.

    I’m pretty sure the notch is under the glass in the same way the current selfie camera and sensors are now. So there’d be no glass cutting aside from normal exterior edges of the screen.

    Having not seen one live, I certainly could be wrong, but that seems the most logical assumption and from the close-up shots I’ve seen, that does appear to be how it is.

    If it was any other OEM I’d be wary too. But I have no qualms about buying the iPhone X, whenever I might be able to get my hands on it. Not that I think Apple is incapable of having problems with their hardware; from experience, we all know that isn’t the case. But more so because whatever the problems, I know Apple will take care of me as a customer. It’s probably the main reason I have become a devoted iPhone user after years of steadfastly being Android only. Apple’s level of customer care and service is pretty much unparalleled.

    The new methods of interacting with the X are flawed. Relatively speaking, it’s crippled by it’s flawed design. It’s screen is reportedly poor in regards to level of brightness. And more intended design elements that are flawed. It is an inferior device. This will become evident very soon.
