Apple iPhone X deliveries could face Delay after Preorders

Apple iPhone X deliveries may be delayed due to short supply. Customers who made pre-orders might receive their iPhone X late.

According to reports, Apple iPhone X is still having production delay. It was said that suppliers are still struggling with the production of the 3D sensor use in Face ID system for the iPhone X.

As a result, experts predicted that it could lead to shortages when pre-orders for the device open on October 27.

Yuanta Investment Consulting analyst Jeff Pu confirms the delay but says the iPhone X will enter mass production in the middle of October.

However, Pu said that that the initial production of 40M units will be reduced to 36M units.

iPhone X pre-order  starts on October 27 — the phone ships November 3. The phone starts at $999, £999 in the UK and AU$1,579 in Australia. The 256GB version costs $1,149.

It will be available in space gray and silver colors.
