Possible reasons why we won't get more iPhone sale reports from Apple

Report: Apple cancels iPhone XR production boost Apple cancels iPhone Xr production boost

Even more alarming, the report claimed that overall production might drop by as much as 25%.

Foxconn assembly lines initially started with 60 for the iPhone XR, recently the number came down to 45 production lines.

Five years ago, Apple cut production orders for its plastic-backed iPhone 5C a month after its launch, fueling speculation of weak demand for the model. Apple is widely considered to be Foxconn's biggest customer, but other stocks of its suppliers were hit worse.

Apple may have made a boatload of money in the July - September 2018 quarter, managing to considerably boost its share of USA smartphone sales before the iPhone XR was even released, but it's not all rosy in the Cupertino camp.

The $749 model is Apple's budget iPhone, and at a few hundred dollars cheaper than the flagship XS and XS Max was meant to stir consumer interest among more cost-conscious buyers.

Apple did not immediately respond to Reuters' request for comment.

While Apple had great expectations for the iPhone XR, it's now ordering more iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models from its partners. However, a new report suggests that the newly launched iPhone is not doing as well as the company had anticipated it to.

With regards to the growing uncertainty caused by the US-China trade disputes, Tung said Pegatron, being a technology company with global deployments, does not see it necessary to relocate its production capacity completely out of China, noting that a 3% capacity relocation might be sufficient.

During a quarterly call with analysts Thursday, Apple executives said that the company will stop providing unit sales data for its three major hardware businesses as of the current quarter, which is Apple's first quarter of fiscal 2019. According to sources in the supply chain, smaller iPhone assembler Wistron was asked to stand by for rush orders, but after the decision of cancelling the production boost, it is not likely to receive any orders this holiday season.
