Sales of the new iPhone X are not as strong as expected in the United States, Taiwan, Singapore and other markets, according to a new report from DigiTimes. Apple is predicted to sell 30-35 million units in 4Q17 and the same or slightly less in 1Q18.

Because of the iPhone X's weak performance, the upstream supply chain has been rumored that Apple is planning three new smartphones for 2018 with two using OLED displays and one LCD display, and the 3D sensing functionality may be more broadly used in these devices. Apple is also rumored to adjust its pricing for iPhone devices in early 2018 and has even started preparing a prototype iPhone with support of pre-5G features. However, Apple has not officially confirmed any of the rumors.

Apple began meeting demand for the iPhone X in the United States four days ago, delivering orders next day. At launch, shipping estimates were 5-6 weeks out.

Sources say that sales of the Apple Watch have been doing rather well. Shipments are expected to reach 27 million in 2018, higher than the previous forecast of 23-25 million.

Wanted to add more. One of my friends who said he was going to get an X ended up getting a huawei later on when I met him. He was so happy and showing off different features. He did mention it’s a transition from out of iOS but he is very happy with his purchase. On the opposite end, there is a trend to make fun of X users. I notice people would make fun of the notch and other short comings of the phone. What a 180! iPhone from status symbol to cell phone pariah! Now the X labels you as a sheep among iPhone users who are fed up. It’s not even about being able to afford it. It’s about no value and Apple not listening to consumers. The days are over of Apple telling consumers what they want. Their prices are not competitive. People are voting with their wallets.

Way too expensive. Apple fully crossed the line. It’s just not worth it to spend that kind of money when my iPhone 6 is still really good. Do I get £1250 worth of better phone? Not at all.
