Apple finds a new enterprise partner in GE

More people are buying Apple iPhone 7 than iPhone 8 – here's why

If the report is accurate, then this is going to be the earliest production cut in the history of the iPhone.

However, according to Reuters, Apple is no longer giving regular updates on sales numbers of the iPhone 8, but indications from supply channels, phone operators and analysts have apparently fuelled talk of poor sales for the smartphone. After all, a production cut this early isn't something we see from Apple every year.

Apple unveiled the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in September alongside the high-end iPhone X. Some analysts believe the company is likely to focus more on the iPhone X, which looks radically different with an edge-to-edge display.

Beijing/Taipei - Suppliers to Apple fell after a newspaper report that orders for iPhone 8 models had been cut for the rest of the year amid a lukewarm reception.

Apple is having some problems manufacturing the iPhone X. And also a source from Taiwan claims that Apple has reduced orders for both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus by 50% for November and December - not good news for Christmas shopping.

North Korea says its nuclear weapons are for self-defense, and that Pyongyang is prepared for an increase in sanctions or a US military option.

There has been questions for a while now as to whether Apple complicated its device range too much, and whether the iPhone X simply costs too much. KeyCorp analyst A. Hargreaves now expects that the iPhone maker will earn $4.06 per share for the quarter, up from their previous estimate of $3.91.

Shares of Apple on Nasdaq were trading down 2.45 percent to $155.77 as of 3pm BST Thursday afternoon.

However, Vinh also pointed out that consumers said they were waiting to buy the upcoming iPhone X or to compare the 10th anniversary device with other models before purchasing the iPhone 8. "At $999, the iPhone X is priced to be a natural increment beyond the iPhone 8 Plus".

Much of this can be attributed to the fact the handset is very similar in appearance to the iPhone 7, which sells for $150 less and can still hold its own against the market's current offerings.

Apple has released two tiers of iPhones at once before.
