Apple Asks Some iPhone X Component Suppliers to Slow Down Deliveries [Report]

Posted September 25, 2017 at 2:19pm by iClarified
Apple has asked some iPhone X component suppliers to slow deliveries, reports DigiTmes. Suppliers were previously shipping about 40% of the quantities expected for the initial production of the iPhone X.

While some suppliers are being asked to slow down deliveries there are still some suppliers that are struggling to reach the 40% requirement due to low yield rates.

Apple adopted the same strategy previously for iPhone 7 in 2016 during which initial shipments of parts and components reached only about 60% of the materials originally required by the vendor, noted the sources, adding that Apple pulled in the remaining 40% of orders 1-2 months later.


Apple is reportedly waiting to see iPhone 8 sales performance and how many iPhone X pre-orders it receives before pushing iPhone X production into full gear.

The iPhone X goes up for pre-order on October 27th and will be released on November 3rd. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.
