So it seems all the hard push from hardcore iPhone sheep -err fans to keep hyping up praises for the iPhone X isn't able to halt the backlash and criticisms gaining traction about all the technical problems the 10th version of the most popular smartphone on the planet giving its users problems that extends further than the missing home button and phone jack.
According to a rumor started by a credible "Apple leakster", the iPhone X release on the world market isn't doing as well as it's been hyped up in the first few months.
An analyst for KGI Securities, Ming-Chi Kuo stated that the demand for the iPhone X world wide is weaker than Apple has let on and has gone as far as to say that many believes continued production of the iPhone X model is likely to stop in the summer of 2018. This is further confirmed with Apple already reducing its production, despite the estimated 18 million iPhone X scheduled to be shipped in stores the first quarter of this year.
The Chinese market is especially noting that one of the main reasons why the iPhone X isn't doing too well is due to its design, ever since it was first marketed last year. Specifically the negative notions people had to the "notch on the top portion of the iPhone X screen".
"The notch has led people, especially the Chinese, to think that there is less space on the screen to work with. They believe that Apple took out too much usable space by cutting out the notch from the screen in favor of the iPhone’s sensors."
All this on top of Apple already facing scathing criminal complaints against the tech-giant's practice for years to deliberately shorten the life of its smartphones known as “batterygate.”
