  • Apple's next iPhone may feature a 'Full Active LCD', according to analyst

Last week we learned that the iPhone X could have a surprisingly short shelf life, with analysts predicting that Apple will replace the phone entirely towards the end of this year, rather than continuing to manufacture and sell units at a lower cost when the new iPhone line-up hits shelves.

Apple has reportedly slashed its production target for the iPhone X by 50 percent following poor holiday sales. With all the problems that have hounded the company in relation to the performance of its older iPhone models, there have also been talks that the tech giant will cease production of its current flagship model, the iPhone X. Other than the next generation of the iPhone X at 5.8-inches, rumors are that it will be joined with a 6.1-inch iPhone X SE and a 6.3-inch iPhone X Plus.

USA stocks pulled back sharply on Monday from record levels last week, with the Dow falling more than 100 points, weighed down by Apple after a media report added to concerns about demand for the iPhone X. For comparison, Canalys calculates that 29 million Xs were shipped in the final quarter of past year.

But Apple likely performed strongly in the October-December quarter, given that the iPhone X did not launch until November.


The iPhone X, which features an edge-to-edge display and facial recognition technology to unlock the phone, went on sale in November in the United States. According to Kuo, the new iPhone X and larger Plus model will both have 4GB of RAM, while the larger handset's battery will grow by 25 percent to offer a capacity of between 3,300 and 3,400 mAh.

'Our survey work indicates iPhone X sales were strong during the December quarter but sales appear slower in January, more in line with normal seasonal trends, ' they wrote in a note.

The latter is said to feature a massive 6.5-inch screen, which is almost two inches bigger than the 4.7-inch display seen on last year's iPhone 8.

Reuters could not immediately reach Apple's USA headquarters for comment outside regular business hours.
