iPhone X supply issues: “Worst is over,” says analyst

Apple has solved the supply issues which have caused its highly–anticipated iPhone X to be delayed, with millions of devices primed for the release on 3rd November.

Analyst Ming Chi Kuo says that worries surrounding the iPhone X’s TrueDepth camera have dissipated, with suppliers able to produce enough working units to allow assembly lines to put together the device in sufficient numbers.

This comes just days after reports suggested Apple would only be able to ship a few thousand iPhone X units at launch, meaning demand would far outstrip supply.

Kuo says that, while Apple will have as many as three million iPhone X models ready when pre–orders go live on 27th October, it will still struggle to meet pent up demand.

It means that those buying an iPhone X will likely face a long wait for delivery, with supply not becoming truly steady until early 2018.

The news is unlikely to put off potential iPhone X owners, who have had to wait almost six weeks to stump up for the all–new phone. Starting at £999, it includes a new, all-screen front, dual lens camera and Face ID for unlocking and secure payments.
