Apple is reportedly reining in production of its cheaper iPhone

This means that Foxconn might only produce some more 100,000 units daily to reflect the new demand outlook.

This news comes from Asia Nikkei Review, which also claims that Apple had asked Wistron to stand-by to fill orders as well, but has since indicated it will not be using any additional capacity for iPhone XR production.

Meanwhile, Americans can expect to work 6.3 days, on average, to afford the 64GB iPhone XS and 6.9 days for the 64GB iPhone XS Max.

Last year, Apple had to face one of the most controversial year endings when the infamous performance throttling feature was discovered to bog down older iPhones.

Suppliers of the 8 and 8 Plus have received a combined order of around 5 million more units. And ultimately, after Apple's continued considerable success, I'm not willing to bet that the company got its customer read wrong this soon after the iPhone's triple launch.

According to reports, Foxconn had planned 60 production lines for the iPhone XR, but now only 45 of them are being implemented - a reduction of 25 percent.

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.

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

It seems that Apple has realised that the demand of the newly launched iPhone XR is not up to the mark. On the other hand, the iPhone XR did not appeal to the consumers as much as the company thought it would.

A bunch of Apple's other Taiwanese suppliers fell sharply, including camera lens-maker Largan Precision Co, which was down more than 7 percent, and Flexium Interconnect, which fell 6 percent.

Preparing for holiday demand, Apple had reportedly contracted a third smaller iPhone assembler to assist. However, the update also brought the Performance Management for the battery to iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X. The feature is enabled by default and will start throttling performance as soon as it detects a drop in consistency from the power reserve.
