If you have your heart set on picking up an iPhone X, you may want to plan for a fairly lengthy wait.
According to a new a report from KGI Securities, the rumored issues Apple has been facing with the production of the iPhone X are even worse than expected. The new OLED iPhone is said to be seeing production numbers of under 10,000 units per day. Additionally, the gold model is said to be facing the most issues and will have extremely constrained supplies at launch.
While iPhone shortages at launch are certainly nothing new, this is certainly the worse we have ever seen should these numbers prove to be accurate. With a price rumored to range anywhere from $900 to $1,000 for the base model, however, that may help alleviate some of the demand.
Besides the iPhone X, Apple is also expected to announce the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus which in a normal year would have been known as the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. The changing in naming nomenclature is believed to have been brought on by the addition of wireless charging, making this a more significant upgrade than Apple tends to do in a ‘s year.’
Apple will make all of its big announcement starting at 10am Pacific/1pm Eastern on Tuesday. Make sure to check back in with TechnoBuffalo for all of the latest news.
