New iPhone supply lines secured to avoid order execution delays

The orders for the latest and upcoming iPhone, the iPhone XR are being shifted between suppliers by Apple, in an attempt to make sure that there are as few supply constraints as possible for the device, when it launches next month.

A new report has risen, suggesting that at first, originally, Apple split up orders for the upcoming phone, primarily between Pegatron and Foxconn. It is being reported that Pegatron managed to score somewhere between 50 to 60 percent of the total orders, which Foxconn managed around 30 percent of the orders. However, as claimed per now, it is stated that Apple has given Foxconn up to and around half of the orders that were reserved for Pegatron, and this occurred due to a disappointing, lower-than-expected yield rate that Pegatron gave, probably because of a shortage of workers at its plant based in China.

There is no secret in the point that Apple has had some major production issues with concerns to the iPhone XR. This probably explains the factor of it being pushed back to an October launch, rather than a launch alongside its siblings, the iPhone XS, and the iPhone XS Plus.

Prior to the media event held back in early September, a report surfaced which claimed that there were some minor complications surrounding the iPhone XR display. It was reported by some analysts and experts back in July that the manufacturers down at Apple were actually experiencing some problems in relation to the handset’s LED backlight leakage.

What the latest news report claims is that the supply of LCD panels all the way from Japan has not as of yet been at all steady.

One of the major factors for this particular problem is the fact that Apple has, and is quite surprised at the amount of enthusiasm that the public has shown for its latest LCD based device. Shortly after the new iPhones were unveiled, it was reported that Apple actually went on to revise the ratio of the total iPhone orders for December –so that the iPhone XR will actually make up more than 50 percent of the total handset that are manufactured. Yes, that’s how enthusiastic the public has been, and it seems that this clearly is appreciated by Apple. The iPhone XR will be available for preorder no longer than on the 19th of October, before it finally hits the markets for proper, just a week later – on the 26th of October.
