Apple may be unable to cater for the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, iPhone X demand
Following the announcement of the Apple iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X, the tech company has revealed that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will begin shipping later in the month with the iPhone X coming much later.
However, it appears that Apple may be unable to take care of the current demand for the product as it has been speculated that the orders have exceeded what the tech company originally budgeted for.
Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the tech company may be unable to meet the demands for the iPhone X if the current demand for the plain iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is this heavy.
A source close to the tech company has revealed that Apple will most likely sell as much as 40 million units of the iPhone X by the end of the year which will mean some users will be unable to get their hands on the 3GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB onboard storage memory variants of the phone.
Sales projection for the iPhone X for 2018 has since been estimated to be on the upward of 90 million units.
It is important to note that one of the most interesting features of the iPhone X is it’s bezel-less design paired with OLED display and the FacialID feature which comes as a replacement for the TouchID security feature.
Pre-order for the iPhone X will start October 27 and sales will expected start on November 3.
