Apple Cuts iPhone Production Plan By 10% for the Next Three Months [Report]

A new report from Nikkei claims that Apple is cutting its current iPhone production plan by about 10% for the next three months.

Apple late last month asked its suppliers to produce fewer of its new iPhones than planned for the January-March quarter, sources with knowledge of the request told the Nikkei Asian Review. It is the second time in two months that the U.S. company has trimmed its planned production for the flagship device.

The request was purportedly made before Apple revised down its guidance for the past holiday quarter. It's said to apply to all new iPhone models including the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.

"The level of revision is different for each supplier and depends on the product mix they supply," said a source.

Overall planned production has reportedly been reduced to 40-43 million units for the January to March quarter from 47-48 million units. Year over year it would represent a 20% reduction from the 52.21 million units sold by Apple in January-March 2018.

Apple he don’t care about us, they care to making more money with not match futures into iPhones and more. Is not Apple fault, is us because we buying them stuff. Apple is more focusing into designing the iPhone less performance is not much from x to xs!

They cares for money more then nothing that’s it. They not fix it our issues in to ios:(
