iPhone X: Apple will meet demand, claim supply chain sources

Apple will meet the huge demand for its new iPhone X in the run up to Christmas, with partners including Foxconn producing enough working parts for the highly anticipated smartphone.

Sources in China say that after the first shipments of the iPhone X left manufacturers, components such as the TrueDepth camera are now arriving at assembly parts in sufficient numbers.

The 3D sensing camera is a core part of the iPhone X, helping to make Apple’s Face ID security system work. Struggles in getting it to work properly are the reason Apple has held back the launch of the iPhone X and why analysts believe it won’t have enough iPhone X units in stock until well into 2018.

Now though, it seems Apple will at least be able to ship a large number of iPhone X units when the device hits shelves on 3rd November.

The iPhone X is available for pre–order from 27th October. It’s unclear how strong demand will be, although it seems highly likely Apple will enjoy a sales boost, with the tenth anniversary iPhone featuring a string of game changing features such as an all–screen front and improved dual lens camera.
