Apple Allegedly Reduces iPhone 7 Orders as Sales Momentum Starts to Fade [Report]

Apple has allegedly started to reduce iPhone 7 orders as sales momentum begins to fade, reports DigiTimes. Sources in Taiwan tell the site that initial demand was driven by the new jet black iPhone 7 models and the recalled Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

Demand for the iPhone 7 devices in China and other markets has scaled down significantly since their launch less than three months ago, the sources noted.

Notably, component suppliers and consumers are said to have already begun shifting focus to the next generation iPhone.

Market rumors have indicated that the next generation iPhone will come with OLED displays, glass cases, dual-lens cameras, enhanced CPUs, and advanced sensors, while supporting mixed reality (MR) and wireless charging technologies.

Due to the high expectations for Apple's tenth anniversary iPhone, suppliers are conservative on iPhone 7 shipments for the first half of 2017. It's expected that shipments during this period will be at least 5 million less than those shipped in the last half of 2016.

We've been hearing reports for some time that the 10th anniversary iPhone will be a major update. It will purportedly have a front glass cover and chassis, joined by a metal bezel and an edge-to-edge display that has no bezels on the top and bottom. Additionally, the front camera, Touch ID, speaker, and other sensors will apparently be embedded into the display. Another report claimed that the device would be a clear piece of glass with a next-generation OLED screen. More recently, Apple is said to have be equipping the phone with wireless charging and a 3D camera.

Are you holding off on the iPhone 7 in favor of the next year's new model? Let us know in the comments and please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

1 headphone jack is the reason I haven't bought, I am a huge Apple fan have the full suite of Apple but it's little more than an IPhone 6 but without the headphone Jack. I don't want to throw away my £200 Bose noise cancelling ear phones! Bluetooth ear phones are not mature enough yet
