Apple’s iPhone X launched last year, the device was in short supply until the end of 2017. According to a recent report, Apple will be cutting production of the handset this quarter.
The news comes in a report from the Nikkei who has said that Apple will be reducing production of the handset from 40 million units to 20 million units a month. This is apparently due to slower than expected sales of the device.
According to the report Apple has seen slower than expected sales of the iPhone X in China, the US and Europe. Prices for the handset start at $999 in the US and £999 in the UK, according to the report this could be one of the reasons that sales are not as high as expected. It should be noted that there are no official sales figures from Apple on their flagship iPhone.
We heard earlier that Apple are expected to launch three new iPhone X handsets this year, one with a 6.1 inch LCD display which is expected to retail for around $700 or $800 and two OLED models of the handset.
The company is also launching a new budget iPhone this year, the iPhone SE and this device is expected to retail for around $350 like the current model. Apple’s new flagship iPhones are expected to land in September or October.
