Apple will not kill the iPhone X this year – Report

Online discounts on Apple iPhone might soon come to an end

Those analyses were corroborated this morning in a fresh report from the well-connected Nikkei Asian Review, which most notably tells us of Apple's latest decision to slash iPhone X production by a whopping 50 percent during the fiscal first quarter - cutting its targets from 40 million units in the to around 20 million.

There have been reports lately about Apple adding two new devices to the iPhone X lineup on top of the acclaimed iPhone X last came out a year ago.

This was said to be due to lacklustre signs of demand for the device.

No new iPhone SE would also mean fewer low-cost options for iPhone fans - or at least what passes for low cost in Apple's ecosystem.

The iPhone X, Apple's first handset to ship with an OLED display, hasn't caught on with consumers the way Apple anticipated, likely due in part to its high price tag. Meanwhile, a DigiTimes report said that the company is gearing up for the release of not two, but four new next-generation iPhone models. Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst from KGI Securities is shining some light on the 2018 line up bearing the iPhone X name. Stock investors are already becoming nervous about the impact of weak iPhone X sales on parts suppliers.

As for the fate of the iPhone X, it is speculated to remain in the market, though the price may possibly be lowered in the coming months.

Being that this is a report from a third-party, the information is not officially confirmed by Apple.

The latter is said to feature a massive 6.5-inch screen, which is almost two inches bigger than the 4.7-inch display seen on last year's iPhone 8.

The group also asked Apple to lay down their concrete plans to address the matter in relation to the affected iPhone users in China. KGI points out that Chinese users are now adhering to their existing phones for a long time, and specifically the notch on the top of the iPhone X's Super Retina display has turned away some potential customers in the region.
