iPhone X Cancelled?
 

 
Apple Leak Reveals Sudden iPhone X Cancellation


Gordon Kelly, CONTRIBUTOR
Jan 21, 2018 8:20 PM 9,902


It may be the smartphone of the moment, but a new leak reveals Apple will soon cancel the iPhone X. And the source could not be more credible…

In a new report obtained by AppleInsider, acclaimed KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says disappointing sales of the iPhone X will lead to the cancellation of the model “with production ceasing in the summer”. This would be the first time Apple has cancelled an iPhone model after just one generation since the iPhone 5C in 2014.


Kuo, who has a long track record successfully revealing Apple’s plans, said disinterest in China is the main reason. In China big screens are king and the iPhone X’s polarising ‘notch’ is seen by Chinese consumers as removing too much usable space. Especially when the cheaper iPhone 8 Plus actually delivers slightly more.


The news also follows a new survey from Cowan which claims interest in new iPhones has hit an historic low.

That said it is not all doom and gloom. While the iPhone X will not bring Apple the much anticipated sales ‘Super Cycle’, Kuo states Apple will see modest 5% growth in the first half of 2018. This comes from Apple having three premium models (iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X) on sale for the first time.


Furthermore Kuo believes Apple will enjoy a better end to 2018 with 10% growth as the outgoing iPhone X will be replaced by a total of three new iPhone X-inspired designs: a second generation 5.8-inch iPhone X, 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus and a “$650-750” 6.1-inch iPhone SE replacement which will be fitted with Face ID. Apple hopes it will be the latter two which once again excite the Chinese market.


It is worth noting none of the new models will have the reduced Face ID notch Apple is working on for 2019 iPhones.

Needless to say Kuo’s report will likely result in declarations that Apple’s downfall is imminent, but to me this is ridiculous. For starters the 5% and 10% growth figures actually stand in contrast to the global smartphone market which is expected to shrink by 5% in 2018 as users hold onto their phones for longer.


Meanwhile I’d argue it’s a smart move cancelling the iPhone X because its design will remain a flagship option (the 6.1-inch model is priced like the iPhone 8) rather than being discounted at one year old. Consequently the 2017 iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will then take the role of cheaper understudies bringing simplification to a range which has become increasingly convoluted in recent years.

In short: this news is far from Apple’s biggest problem right now…

As we detailed earlier today, reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently issued a new investor note claiming that Apple’s 2018 lineup will feature two brand new versions of the iPhone X. Interestingly, one model is said to feature a 6.5-inch OLED display while the second will reportedly boast a 6.1-inch LCD display. Naturally, both devices will feature edge to edge displays and will utilize Face ID for user authentication as opposed to Touch ID.

Now that’s relatively straight forward, but here’s where things get interesting. Kuo — who we should note has an exemplary track record with respect to iPhone rumors — adds that Apple may opt to discontinue the current iPhone X entirely if sales are underwhelming.

Expensive to buy
Expensive to make
Awkward as fu*k to use

Pretty much only the Apple superfans like this phone. The casual iPhone users were never gonna buy this sh*t and Apple is dumb for not noticing.

You can't teach some 60 year old grandma to unlock their phone with their face and use a bunch of swipes to open and close apps.

The real reason is probably they just don't want any confusion with the nomenclature when they release iPhone 10.

Cancelled the 5c. Guess what the 5s was a 5c with a polished outside. Lmao. The x i thought was a anniversary phone?? Regardless, Apple will just make a plus verison and call it the iphone 9. Maybe theyll be able to manufacture theyre own oled curved screens? Who knows?

Man I had 6 until I upgraded to the X. That poor little 6 tried as hard as it could but just couldn't keep up. The battery issue was one thing but the phone just struggled. And then i broke the camera, the screen was cracked...damn.

I will say the X is a significant upgrade though. I went with the X really because I could and my wife wasn't tripping on the price. Is it worth it? Probably not, and there are a few (and i really mean only a handful of things) i don't like but that's not the phone but iOS interactions. The faceID and lack of home button is nice though. I have to work with previous model iPhones for softward dev and I swear i struggle when using those phones. It's not for everyone though. And I don't knock anyone looking to avoid that jump.
