Apple scales down production of iPhone XR due to low demand

The iPhone XR may not be selling as well as Apple hoped.                  Ian Knighton  CNET

Though he did not disclose the names of the new products or the client, Tung was obviously referring to the new iPhone devices, according to industry sources.

The iPhone XR may not be selling as well as Apple hoped.

Foxconn assembly lines initially started with 60 for the iPhone XR, recently the number came down to 45 production lines.

Meanwhile, Pegatron, which is another key partner of the Cupertino-based tech giant, has had to "suspend plans to ramp up production", now "awaiting further instructions", according to supply chain sources that are typically right about these things. "The utilization for the XR production is not reaching its maximum capacity now", Nikkei's source stated.

The discussions have been more detailed than those of other front runners in the area. The company has said it would invest $5 billion in the new headquarters.


Pegatron is to deliver its fourth-quarter outlook at an investors conference scheduled on November 8.

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

The company's decision to not expand production lines doesn't necessarily suggest problems.

Interestingly, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have had orders increase by more than 5 million units.

"At the point of attack we allowed them to get where they wanted to go, however they wanted to go to start the game". Leonard grew up in Southern California's Inland Empire area, one hour east of Los Angeles.


"If the reports are accurate, we do find it somewhat disturbing that this would take place so early after the launch of the iPhone XR", said Angelo Zino, an analyst at CFRA.

First off, it's hard to know if any of this is true, and now that Apple has stated that it will stop disclosing unit sales, we might never know. These two models are roughly 20% cheaper than Apple's new iPhone XR which is available in the USA at a starting price of $749. However, it could also mean that the $100 price cut that the iPhone 8 got at the iPhone XS/iPhone XR launch is encouraging a low-end (well, the "starting at $600 end" of the market) to upgrade their old iPhones.

At the same time, however, Apple made major changes to its entire iPhone product line this year in a way it really hasn't before.
