Apple has asked Foxconn and Pegatron to stop additional lines for the iPhone XR, released at the end of October, according to Reuters, a clear indication of the weak demand for the new phone.
According to sources, Apple also asked the company, which collects iPhone phones, to prepare a large number of iPhone XRs when you need them.
Producer sources quoted from Foxy said that Foxconn has prepared 60 production lines for the iPhone XR, while Apple said only 45 do not need to produce more.
One month after Apple was released five years ago, Apple stopped production of the iPhone 5C with a plastic chassis and revealed the weak demand in the low-cost iPhone, where the company stopped direct production.
Apple said last week that its fourth quarter sales, which correspond to the holiday season, will not meet Wall Street's expectations.
Apple also decided to quit announcing sales figures for iPhone and iPad days, arguing that the number of units sold did not provide an accurate picture of the company's financial results.
