Analyst cuts his forecast of 2017 Apple iPhone X production by 10%
The anonymous tech executive says that the dot projector, part of the TrueDepth Camera system, is responsible for the production delays. This is seconded by Jeff Pu, an analyst with Taipei-based Yuanta Investment Consulting who agrees that the production issue is coming from the dot projector. Despite this prediction, Pu still expects Apple to begin mass production of the iPhone X in the middle of this month. The phone will start to be shipped out of China the very next week, he says. However, the analyst has cut his forecast of 2017 iPhone X production by 10% to 36 million units.
If Apple makes no changes, the iPhone X will be available for pre-orders starting on Friday, October 27th, which is just two weeks from tomorrow. The current launch date is scheduled for a week after the start of pre-orders, Friday November 3rd. The 64GB iPhone X will be priced at $999, while $1,149 should get you the 256GB model.
