Finally Apple madeup its mind to reducing the number of parts it is purchasing for iPhone X and it is confirmed that it is not planning to order any more parts during the second half of this year. Although this may seem that Apple is taking such measure with its new model in mind, it is unusual for it to adjust a large number of inventories.
All these actions are solidifying a rumor about possible discontinuation of iPhone X that was raised by some industries and people. It is worrisome that South Korean partners will take direct hits to their overall performance.
According to report on the 1st, it is understood that Samsung Display, which supplies its displays to Apple for iPhone X, informed its partners around the 19th of last month that it would be reducing the number of parts related to iPhone X that it orders from them.
Samsung Display corrected the previous forecast and informed that amount of orders will be reduced by more than 50% compared to its initial plan. According to changed information, amount of orders reduced from 40 million units to 20 million units for the first quarter of 2018.
