Verizon Expects Big Sales For Apple IPhone X This Holiday Season

Apple's iPhone X might be hard to find on store shelves when it launches in just a couple short weeks.

Apple's iPhone X was announced at the company's iPhone press event last month alongside the iPhone 8.

A source for the Economic Daily News says this is the first time in iPhone history that production has had to be cut so soon after launch (September 22nd). After that, Apple had manufacturing problems related to its iPhone X's rear-facing camera, as well as the sensor that will be used to power its Face ID facial scanner.

Once the iPhone X comes out in the market there will surely be a massive surge in sales which will once more prove that Apple is the best high tech firm in the world.

Pricing for the iPhone X starts at $999, but most people won't have to pay all of that at once.

Kuo's note, seen by Business Insider, also goes into some detail about what's causing the delays. "The iPhone 7 is now selling at $549 and $649 for 32 GB and 128 GB models, respectively, while the iPhone 8 is selling at $699 and $849 for 64 GB and 256 GB versions". Carriers will probably engage in a fierce iPhone X pricing war come November, looking to ink as many new subscribers as possible.

Finally, the note touches on the True Depth camera issue that had been previously reported by The Wall Street Journal "We believe the previous design issues of the dot projector sometimes being unable to recognize human faces has been resolved after active alignments or environmental tests were addressed", Kuo wrote.

Kuo believes shipments of iPhone X could show 50% quarter-over-quarter growth in the first quarter of 2018.

KeyCorp upgraded shares of Apple Inc.

As part of the agreement, GE will standardize on Apple for mobile devices, and also promote Mac as a choice for its global workforce of more than 330,000 employees, while Apple will in turn promote GE's Predix as its industrial IoT analytics platform of choice.

The market is bullish on Apple's 2018 iPhone sales performance, and it is understood that Apple will still launch its new iPhone X next year, and be divided into higher-order and lower-order products, the name of the higher-order version of the industry called "Lisbon", the lower-order product code is "Hangzhou".
