Apple Denies Lowering Face ID Camera Quality to Boost iPhone X Production

Yesterday, Bloomberg ran a story suggesting that Apple had faced problems getting the iPhone X to market on time.

Next year, however, Apple's lineup should be more interesting.

Supplies of the iPhone X are expected to be between two and three million on launch day, with 30 million available over the Christmas period, down from the expected 40 million and a long way from the average sale cycle of 200 million.

If the rumor mill is to be believed - and I think it should be considering that, in general, it tends to nail the big picture details about future iPhones - Apple is prepping three new iPhones for next year. "It gives you a lot of visibility, it's less expensive than selling it to people in stores, it's easier to tell people when it's going to arrive".

iPhone X is the latest in Apple's line of state-of-the-art gadgets and one of the year's most anticipated.

Apple has not released any official statements regarding iPhone X delays.

When customers order online, they don't pay up front. Zurich Insurance Group Ltd FI raised its stake in shares of Apple by 1.4% in the first quarter. Investors and analysts will be able to monitor how the wait times for delivery develop in the course of Friday, giving insights into demand.

We heard earlier that pre-order of the iPhone X in the U.S. would start at 12.01 am PT and now we have details about United Kingdom pre-orders of the handset.

If you want an iPhone X, you have to do your homework. NY time and should remain largely unchanged in the following days, said Gene Munster, a veteran Apple analyst and co-founder of VC firm Loup Ventures.

As for the pricing, the iPhone Upgrade Pricing on the iPhone X costs $49.91 per month for the 64GB model and $56.16 per month for the 256GB model.

The pre-order system is a first-come-first-served basis and the quickest way to do it is via the Apple Store app.

The risk of losing customers to Android handset maker Samsung Electronics Co. due to delivery delays is small, since the South Korean company's flagship phone has been available since April, according to Shannon Cross, an analyst at Cross Research who recommends buying Apple shares.

In other words: Apple should be able to convince a larger portion of the iPhone installed base to upgrade to new phones next year thanks to a broader, even more vibrant product portfolio than what it now has today. They now have a $208.00 price target on the iPhone maker's stock.

Apple will report earnings November 2, when it will also give guidance for the holiday quarter. If manufacturing process speeds up, we still expect a shortage in supplies.

A neat trick that will help you pre-order the iPhone X a lot faster is if you place it through the iOS Apple Store instead of using the web-based service to carry this forward. This case looks great, feels awesome and offers military grade drop protection without adding much bulk.
