    From http://www.reuters.com/article/us-a...flirt-with-correction-territory-idUSKCN1C02OA :

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Shares of Apple Inc dipped on Monday and flirted with correction territory following a report that the company had told suppliers to scale back shipments of parts for its upcoming iPhone X.

    Digitimes, citing unnamed sources, reported that Apple suppliers were shipping just 40 percent of the components originally ordered for the premium phone, which goes on sale in early November.

    Sorry if this has already been posted. Couldn't see it.

    Could it be possible that some manufacturing unit in the supply chain isn't able to meet projected quantities yet (screens?), so Apple is adjusting other supplier rates to match? I.e., cutbacks are due to manufacturing and not to sales projections?

    Still, it's tough news for those anxious for their X.

    Apple will get the job done, the 40% figure is meaningless because they may have originally planned to launch this month... the delay until November will allow Apple to have 100%+++.

    40% is enough for every local store carry 10 or 20 on launch day ....

    People need to chill out with the X anxiety. We’ve all managed to live this long without it, and a year from now, most people here will already be bored of it. It’s just another gadget.

    The article I read said the complexity of the front camera system is one of the reasons for the low production yields.
