Investors and news outlets are reporting that Apple is slowing down production for the iPhone XR, and on that metric, imply that sales might not be good. I'm not defending Apple against this idea - their high prices probably would yield lower demand overall. So then, why is it the phone that people seem to be most interested in talking about? I seldom see discussion about the XS, but all over YouTube and Twitter, I get the sense that the XR generates a lot of discussion. Not only that, it is mostly positive. It's possible that the algorithmic news feeds are simply creating an echo chamber but I wanted to see what other people's thoughts were.
