Apple’s suppliers will only be able to ship 20 million iPhone X units before the end of the year. This is half the number Apple had been planning to make in 2017, according to Nikkei.
Launching Nov. 3, the iPhone X has been plagued by production issues and component delays both before and after the device was announced on Sept. 12. The publication notes Apple suppliers initially had issues with the bonding process for the handset’s new OLED display.
As others have also reported, quality issues with the iPhone X TrueDepth camera system have also slowed production.
Pre-orders for the iPhone X begin this Friday, Oct. 27 at 12:01 a.m. PDT time.
