Key Analyst Says Apple's Only Making 10,000 iPhone X Units Per Day

Additionally, "Blush Gold" version could be delayed further

iPhone x production issues continue … 

If you’re hoping to receive your iPhone X on the first day of release, you better be quick with your fingers. In his latest research note to investors, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple’s current production totals for the 5.8-inch device total just 10,000 units per day. Because of this, the analyst expects a “severe short supply” for the new handset “for a while”, according to MacRumors.

Kuo also notes the “Blush Gold” colored iPhone X is facing additional production issues and might not launch at the same time as the other two colors, expected to be silver and black.

As Kuo explains:

Due to component supply constraints, we estimate current production of the OLED iPhone at less than 10k units per day, which means the model will remain in severe short supply for a while. Furthermore, we estimate that the gold version of the OLED iPhone will encounter some production problems and will initially be available only in extremely low volume. There is even a chance that the gold version will go on sale at a later date than the other versions. However, we believe these shipment delays will have a limited impact on the shares of Apple and its supply chain members.

Tomorrow’s iPhone X event begins at 10 a.m. PDT from the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park Campus. In addition to the OLED iPhone X, the company’s expected to announce a 4.7-inch iPhone 8 and 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus. A new Apple TV with 4K video and Apple Watch Series 3 are also set to arrive.

If you are planning on buying an iPhone X, will you wait for the Brush Gold version?
