Analyst cuts his forecast of 2017 Apple iPhone X production by 10%

According to a new report from Nikkei, Apple is still encountering production issues with the aforementioned TrueDepth Camera system, the component which serves as the foundation for Face ID.

The Romeo module has a dot projector which employs laser technology to beam the 30,000 infra-red dots over the face of a user in order to map the unique characteristics and features of the user's face.

In Brightwire's view production of the initial one million units of the iPhone X may not happen until December.

iPhone X features the new A11 Bionic chip with a special neural engine that helps power Face ID which unlocks the device by taking a 3D scan of the users face.

The iPhone X, pronounced "iPhone Ten", features a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED edge-to-edge display with 2436 x 1125 resolution and 458ppi, HDR support, Dolby Vision, HDR10, and True Tone.

Analyst Jeff Pu from Taipei-based Yuanta Investment Consulting told Nikkei the iPhone X will enter mass production in mid-October and will start to ship from China in the third week of this month. However, since this issue has still not been sorted out, he has revised his own 2017 iPhone X shipments prediction down from 40 million units to 36 million.

According to Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang (via StreetInsider) production is now 400,000 units per week, up from 100,000 previously. Not terribly long ago, a financial newswire said that Apple's yield for the iPhone X was 10%. If Apple makes no changes, the iPhone X will be available for pre-orders starting on Friday, October 27th, which is just two weeks from tomorrow. Of course, it goes without saying that supply will likely be extremely limited at launch, with some analysts opining that many interested buyers may not get their hands on the iPhone X until 2018. The smartphone also comes with a vertical-dual camera system, which includes larger and faster sensors.
