    Apple to halve iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus production already.JPG

    According to a new report in China’s Economic Daily News, via Reuters and MacRumors, Apple has already requested that its suppliers cut iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus production by almost 50 percent in November and December.

    The information comes via an anonymous source that said that this is the first time in Apple’s history that Apple has cut back production of new iPhone models by so much and so soon after mass production started.

    However, as has been said many times over the past few weeks, the main reason for slow iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus sales is excitement over the iPhone X, which is expected to break sales records for Apple.

    Eh, if the iPhone X wasn't coming out iPhone 8 sales would be much greater. I think the iPhone X is going to be a huge seller for Apple.
