KGI: Improved iPhone X Shipping Estimates Due to Better-Than-Expected Production, Not Weak Demand

Steady improvements in iPhone X supplies that have seen shipping estimates fall to 1-2 weeks are due to better-than-expected improvements in production since the device's launch, rather than any weakness demand, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who shared the information in a new research report obtained by MacRumors.


According to Kuo, who frequently shares accurate information from Apple's supply chain, iPhone X production issues "have been well addressed" in recent weeks, with Foxconn's production now at 450,000-550,000 units per day compared to just 50,000-150,000 a month or two ago as Apple geared up to launch the device.

Two of the primary bottlenecks that contributed to tight supplies of the iPhone X have largely been resolved, according to Kuo, with Career quickly making up for lost time after Murata was unable to provide LTE antenna components as originally planned and LG Innotek and Sharp seeing improved yields for the dot projector module of the TrueDepth camera.
(1) Hon Hai’s daily shipments of iPhone X have climbed to 450-550k units, up from 50-150k units 1-2 months ago; (2) shipments of Career’s LCP LTE antenna will likely grow 100% MoM in both November and December; and (3) production yield of Dot projection module, made by LG Innotek (KR) and Sharp (JP), has moved quickly above 80-90% or higher from below 60% 1-2 months ago.
As a result of the improved production, Kuo believes iPhone X shipments in the fourth calendar quarter could be 10-20 percent higher than he previously estimated, with some orders previously estimated as shipping in the new year being pulled in and shipped before the end of the quarter. That acceleration means Kuo is predicting that iPhone X shipments in the first quarter of 2018 will be flat or slightly lower compared to the fourth quarter.

Apple's financial guidance for the current quarter points toward record performance, suggesting the company is confident any production troubles have been resolved and that demand for the high-end iPhone X will be strong throughout the quarter.

Editorial: Thankful for iPhone X

Throughout this miserable year we suffered a series of horrific tropical storms and deadly wildfires; a year of ugly, divisive politics, nonstop fake news and a new broader realization that many of the people we formerly respected have actually led terrible abusive lives of harassment, assault and even predation of children. We can take some comfort in the fact that at least our technology improved dramatically.

Keep Your iPhone X Slim Silhouette With The New Tozo Case

Sometimes it’s hard finding a case that’s protective yet slim enough for your iPhone, since a lot of the cases on the market can create bulk or inconvenience when you’re trying to hold or use your iPhone. That’s why the new paper-thin Tozo case would be a great option for you, especially if you’re looking for a case that’s sleek, lightweight and easy to hold for your device.

Only coming in at 0.03 inches, you would think it wouldn’t be able to protect your iPhone. But funny enough, the Tozo case for the iPhone X is more than just its size, due to it coming with a special scratch resistant material, a raised bumper, and a soft yet firm grip all around the case, to ensure you don’t drop your iPhone when you pick it up.

Another worthy thing to mention about it, is that the case is also super matte yet also slightly transparent too. So you’re still able to see your iPhone’s back yet not, since it was made with a semi sheer material that’s great for reducing glare, fingerprints or grease buildup.

So if you’re interested in the new, super thin Tozo case for your iPhone X, then you can always be sure to learn more about it over at Amazon.com, where it’s currently selling for as little as $8.99, in the color choices of blue, black, frost white or pink.
