Apple To Increase Shipments Of iPhone XR Due To Higher Demand
The Apple iPhone XR is not yet available on sale, lacks certain features compared to the other two and is still proving to be the most popular out of the three iPhones launched recently. The device is the cheapest of the bunch and does lack some features when compared to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. However, industry sources report that Apple is ramping up production for the same.
The device will go on sale on 26th October. Apple has reportedly pushed the production up to 20 million units. iPhone XR orders have been revised upward to over 50 % and the demand will continue to rise, according to experts. Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo had earlier stated that the sales of the iPhone XS will be lower than expected and that the iPhone XR will account for 50-60 % of shipments of the new iPhones.
