IPhone XR sales reportedly kill production boost plan

Report: Apple cancels iPhone XR production boost

The Cupertino, California-based company has blamed weakness in emerging markets and foreign exchange costs for a disappointing forecast for sales in the run-up to Christmas that are crucial to results for consumer electronics producers.

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

"The utilization for the XR production is not reaching its maximum capacity now", the source said.

In the 2013 semifinals, he bounced back from a set down to beat the Swiss, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. And what more can I ask for? "And I saw that my level is there".

Investors continued doing damage to Apple's stock price on Monday, following the company's controversial move to end the disclosure of unit sales data for its iPhone, iPad and Mac businesses.

In a odd plot twist, Nikkei went on to cite Apple's decision to shift its focus towards "requesting more of the older iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models", which are about 20% cheaper than the iPhone XR ($599 vs. $749 base price).

Piecing the details of the report together, it all appears to imply that more would-be iPhone buyers are opting to save the additional money by purchasing the older iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus instead of the newer iPhone XR. As a result, Apple has reportedly cancelled the production boost that it was likely to give after the smartphone hit the shelves.

The Spice Girls will kick off their United Kingdom stadium tour in June next year in Manchester but without Victoria Beckham . In February, the five members posted a photo to social media, saying they were planning to work on new projects together.

Apple on Monday did not respond to Reuters' request for comment. Apple is still selling the previous generation iPhone and is now producing it again in larger quantities. Foxconn, Pegatron and Wistron declined to comment.

Apple has taken some questionable decisions over the past years that have left us without the audio jack, Touch ID sensor in its devices or it has throttled the speed of their older iPhone models to "conserve the battery and make them last longer". Someone in Cuba would have to work 608.4 days to afford the iPhone XS and 669.3 days to pay off the iPhone XS Max.

Earlier this week, a somewhat sketchy report surfaced claiming that Apple told its manufacturing partners to reduce iPhone XR production due to lower than anticipated demand.
