Apple Shares fall after Report indicates iPhone X Production Cuts

iPhone SE 2 wireless charging unlikely says contrary analyst

The media outlet also reports that Apple had difficulties keeping up with demand for the iPhone X right after launch because deliveries of major components had been delayed.

A French investigation into possible "planned obsolescence" or "fraud" by Apple is being led by antitrust and consumer protection specialists in the French economy ministry.

According to a recent report by MacRumors, KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has researched on the trend and of the opinion that Apple might not have an updated SE at all. These three are expected to arrive later this year and hold priority for the company as one of them is the second-gen iPhone X, while other two are also supposed to feature Face ID tech and more new features.

The note concludes with the belief that Apple won't have enough spare resources in hand to work on the iPhone SE 2 and launch it in Q2 of 2018.

"Kuo said, "We are positive on the shipments outlook of the 6.1" LCD iPhone, and forecast it will have a weighting of around 50% in the new models in 2H18".

What are the last minute rumours you need to know ahead of the 2018 Royal Rumble? Being the new guy sucks. I thought it was better than Omega-Okada, and I thought that was one of the best matches I've ever seen.

It was said to be too early in the probe to speculate regarding the potential for Apple to be accused of wrongdoing.

Privately Apple believe that the development of their own processors which they believe will be superior to offerings from Intel and Qualcomm will give them a distinct advantage over arch rival Samsung. That device will reportedly be the cheapest of the new Apple smartphones this year and will come with a design reminiscent of the iPhone X, featuring an edge-to-edge display and "notch" at the top of the screen.

Apple To Cut OLED Screen iPhone Production? It's rumored that the company will release three new iPhones this year, including a new version of the SE.

The iPhone X is the first smartphone from Apple to feature an organic light-emitting diode display, which is partly why it's so expensive. However, market share fell by 2.4 percentage points in the United Kingdom. The issue affects older models including the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, and iPhone 7.
