Foxconn and Apple to discuss iPhone X production issues

Analysts predict 2-3 million devices at launch.

Apple is releasing the iPhone X model next month, but the company is still having production issues with its main partner Foxconn. According to Nikkei, Apple will meet Foxconn this week to discuss the production issues of iPhone X and possibly solve them.

Previous news has indicated that Apple might have problems with the 3D front-camera sensors, manufactured by Sharp and LG, that are holding up production. Although the production has improved over the past two weeks, the yield rate is still not at the desired level. Moreover, by the end of this month, Foxconn won’t be even close to a satisfactory level.

A popular analyst has predicted that Apple will just have up to 3 million units for launch, which may turn many potential customers away from the iPhone X for the Holiday season as the handset may be out of stock for a long time.

However, the iPhone X shipments are likely to ramp up in December and early January, so if you are to so eager to get the flagship model you won’t have to wait more than 2 months.

iPhone X is the first iPhone ever without a physical Home button that has been replaced with gestures. The phone also has a new design with glass and an OLED display.
