Because in September there will be new iPhone, iPhone X production is reduced. Because of this, manufacturers have accumulated a lot of unnecessary details for the gadget that has nowhere to go – reports DigiTimes.
Apparently, this problem has also led to high expectations of the leadership Apple. Despite the fact that iPhone X is the best-selling smartphone in the first quarter of 2018, the quantitative indicators of suffering – the company has ordered more devices than were able to implement.
IPhone sales was 77.3 52.2 million and in the first and second quarters of 2018, respectively. Although they led to record revenues Apple, this is largely due to the high cost of iPhone X. So the producers say they hold almost three times more detail than they have already managed to send.
Usually Apple requires suppliers to provide more parts than necessary. This allows the company to avoid delays in production, but lead to similar incidents. And it is expected in 2018 there is a global decline in sales of smartphones compared to 2017.
But all is not so bad as it seems: Apple often uses components of the previous models of the iPhone to create new, so manufacturers don’t bother.
