Apple iPhone X Shipments Begin, First Batch Pegged at 46500 Units

Apple iPhone X Shipments Begin, First Batch Pegged at 46500 Units”

There is both good and bad news for those consumers who have made a decision to wait for the Apple iPhone X to launch before deciding which handset they will buy next. This technology is responsible for new features in the iPhone X including FaceID and animoji. The publication says that the first shipment of iPhone X devices left Foxconn's facilities in Zhengzhou and Shanghai on Monday. According to a Digitimes report that references news from the Chinese outlet Xinhuanet.com, Apple's manufacturer Foxconn recently began shipping the first round of iPhone Xs to the Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates, but that first batch only included 46,500 devices.

Foxconn has apparently ramped up iPhone X production from 100,000 units a week to 400,000 units a week, but that's still not enough to meet demand.

Of course, we've known for quite some time that iPhone X availability would be limited at launch; however this morning's report gives us a pretty good idea of what we can truly expect moving into the holiday season and beyond.

Unfortunately, consumers will be expected to pay a heavy sum for the changes incorporated as the base model of the iPhone X comes in at $999, meaning that according to import rules and regulations of other regions, you might end up paying a lot more for the device. Both of those countries are among the over 50 markets in which Apple will launch the iPhone X on November 3.

At this point, it would seem that iPhone X availability is going to be far, far more restrained at launch than even the analysts expected. KGI Securities well-connected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously called for 30 million to 35 million units of the iPhone X to be produced in 2017.
