Apple informed its primary phone assemblers, Foxconn and Pegatron, to stop prepare for extra iPhone XR assembly line, a report stated Monday.

The order to the 2 Taiwanese business recommends that need for least expensive of the 2018 iPhones hasn’t measured up to Apple’s expectations, according to Nikkei, which mentioned confidential sources.

“For the Foxconn side, it first prepared nearly 60 assembly lines for Apple’s XR model, but recently uses only around 45 production lines as its top customer said it does not need to manufacture that many by now,” a source informed the Japanese monetary paper.

That’d imply the business would make around 100,000 less XRs, the report kept in mind, while a source within Pegatron stated “XR production is not reaching its maximum capacity now.”

Apple supposedly asked smaller sized Taiwanese assembler Wistron to get ready for rush orders, however it will not be getting XR orders this holiday.

However, Apple has actually bought around 5 million more iPhone 8 designs (mainly made by Pegatron) and iPhone 8 Plus designs (mostly from Foxconn), bringing the order for those to 25 million, the report stated. The 2 2017 iPhone 8 designs begin at $600 and $700 respectively, compared to $750 for the XR.

iPhone XR: It’s the iPhone you should buy


The Cupertino, California, company said last week it didn’t sell as many iPhones as analysts expected, and noted that it would no longer detail unit sales for iPhones, iPads and Macs.

Neither Apple, Foxconn, Pegatron nor Wistron immediately responded to requests for comment.

Pay up, folks: Apple’s higher iPhone, iPad Pro prices are the new normal.

iPad Pro review: Big beautiful tablet? Yes. Flexible computer? TBD.
