IPhone X failure? Apple trying to reduce existing supply

  • Source: Apple Will Produce Only 8 Million iPhone X Units In Q2

Last October, just after Apple started selling the first of two new iPhone models, there was an initial wave of fear that the iPhone 8 wasn't flying off store shelves. Under this program, Apple launches its product in RED colour to support the organisation to collect fund. When a user purchases a Product RED device, Apple sends contribution to the Global Fund which is funding the HIV/AIDS programs.

The iPhone 8 Product Red edition with 64GB storage will cost Rs 67,940 whereas the 128GB variant will cost Rs 81,500.

And in conjunction with the suspected death of the expensive iPhone X, rumors have begun to swirl about Apple's next move, with many speculating that a second generation iPhone SE might be in the works due to its affordability. However, what the differentiates the standard edition and (PRODUCT) RED edition of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is the color.

Under the hood, the phone is said to pack Apple' A10 Fusion chip which debuted with the iPhone 7 in 2016. The stress is most likely overdone, but it's a sign of the new, more-anxious normal for Apple and its investors.

In a best-case scenario, Apple might sell up to 60 million iPhone X units in the first year, but that's assuming Apple manages to sell 33 million units by the end of the third quarter. The iPhone 8 in RED was announced by Apple in early April and will go on sale in the Indian market from today onward. And while reports suggest that it will have an iPhone X-inspired edge-to-edge display, there are also some conflicting reports that suggest otherwise. This is a 6-core processor that is claimed to be 25% faster than the previous gen chipset. Most notably the phone has a glass back, which may aid wireless charging, and aren't missing the 3.5mm headphone jack. On the other hand, the Phone 8 Plus offers a 5.5-inch retina display with dual rear 12MP+12MP cameras along with a 7MP sensor at the front.

Though, this is not sure if the smartphone will support FaceID or not? The smaller iPhone comes with a 1821mAh battery, while the larger handset packs a 2691mAh battery.
