Apple COO Jeff Williams and Foxconn Chief Will Reportedly Meet Amid iPhone X Production Issues

Apple's operating chief Jeff Williams will reportedly meet Foxconn chairman Terry Gou later this month, following several reports about ongoing iPhone X production issues, according to Nikkei Asian Review.


While the report did not say which issues Gou and Williams will discuss, the two executives will presumably discuss ways to deal with the manufacturing bottleneck for Apple's new high-end smartphone.

Williams will be visiting Taiwan for the 30th anniversary of TSMC, the sole supplier of the A11 Bionic chip in the latest iPhone models, the report said. A ceremony marking the celebration is scheduled for Monday.

Apple's suppliers are still struggling to perfect manufacturing of the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera and 3D facial recognition system, according to the report. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo highlighted the issues last month.

Multiple reports have claimed it has taken more time to assemble the TrueDepth system's so-called "Romeo" module than the "Juliet" module.

The "Romeo" module reportedly includes the dot projector that beams more than 30,000 invisible dots to create a precise depth map of your face, while the "Juliet" module includes the infrared camera that analyzes the pattern. Together, they help power new iPhone X features such as Face ID and Animoji.

The First 46,500 iPhone X Have Shipped From China

Rumor has it that Apple’s supplier Foxconn has recently shipped the first 46,500 units of the iPhone X out of China.

The most current rumor regarding the iPhone X shipping status states that the first 46,500 units have been shipped recently from two of Foxconn facilities, one in Zhengzhou and the other in Shanghai. The pre-order date for the iPhone X will start on October 27th, and the launch date is set to follow on November 3rd. Reports state the first units were shipped to the Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Talk has it that the main setback for the iPhone X was the TrueDepth camera, which handles tasks like the Face ID, the problem arise specifically from the iPhone X’s dot projector. The component is responsible for illuminating a user’s face with 30,000 infrared dots to create a depth map of the user’s face, which is the reason for the iPhone X low production at this point.

It seems Foxconn has plans to up the production from 100,000 units per week to 400,000 units per week. Once production steps up, analyst believe shipments for the device will be between 30 million to 37 million for the year 2017.
