Apple reportedly cancels production boost for the iPhone XR

Report: Apple cancels iPhone XR production boost

Its sources say that Apple has told its manufacturing partners, Foxconn and Pegatron, that it won't be needing the extra production lines it originally expected to tap. In the quarter the American vendor released the ipHone XS, XS Max and XR. The phone does appear to have ramped more slowly than some of Apple's previous flagships, but it became the bestselling phone through much of the first half of 2018. "The utilization for the XR production is not reaching its maximum capacity now", Nikkei's source stated. However, Apple did indicate that it's a feature that will be part of all future iPhones, which has brought last year's gleaming iPhone models to suffer from the same wrath.

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.

Ives wrote that he sees the end of unit sales disclosure as "another major step forward in getting the Street to value and look at Apple as a services driven company for the next decade [plus] built on the heels of its iconic iPhone product success".

On Tuesday, shares in other Taiwan-based Apple suppliers fell sharply as well.

Apple had also asked Wistron, a smaller iPhone assembler, to stand by for rush orders, but the company will receive no orders for the iPhone XR this season, the report said, citing supply chain sources.

"The main questions are why do this now and is Cupertino hiding something (e.g., decelerating iPhone unit sales)?"

Apple shares were down 3.6 percent in Monday afternoon trading, at $200.14.

Of course, given how new the iPhone XR is, along with the fact that Apple recently made a decision to withhold its quarterly iPhone sales figures, we may never actually know how well or how poorly an iPhone model is selling again.

Piecing the details of the report together, it all appears to imply that more would-be iPhone buyers are opting to save the additional money by purchasing the older iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus instead of the newer iPhone XR.
