Is the iPhone X cursed before it's even launched?

Is the iPhone X cursed before it's even launched?

Bloomberg published with a must-read scoop this morning, reporting that Apple has "quietly told suppliers they could reduce the accuracy of the face-recognition technology to make it easier to manufacture", citing anonymous sources. Apple has said Face ID is more secure than its fingerprint sensor, and Bloomberg noted that the reduced accuracy of Face ID was still more secure than Touch ID.

"The iPhone X really sets the tone for the next decade in technology, it has a lot of new technology in it", CEO Tim Cook said last week in an interview with BuzzFeed News during the opening of a new Apple store in Chicago.

In better news for Apple, HSBC initiates the company at Buy and a $193 price saying, "We believe a very large installed base of loyal, yet patient users can't wait to get their hands on iPhone X".

Regardless, one thing seems clear: iPhone X supply is going to be bad this quarter.

Just a few days away from the official launch of the iPhone X, several studies indicate a lack of enthusiasm about its release, even from Apple "fanboys".

So that this problem doesn't happen in the future, Apple has already started negotiations with other manufacturers for the production of certain parts used in the iPhone. So you can pre-order an iPhone X on Friday if you want. It added, "we expect Face ID to be the new gold standard for facial authentication". If Apple can increase the number of handsets they roll out in the near future, it will obviously a big win for them financially, but hopefully the quality of the Face ID experience won't be impacted to a great degree. The fund owned 60,902 shares of the iPhone maker's stock after purchasing an additional 1,330 shares during the period.

ILLEGAL ACTIVITY WARNING: This news story was reported by StockNewsTimes and is the sole property of of StockNewsTimes. Basically, Appl was having trouble producing the modules that work and combine together to form the dot projector.

The crux of the problem has been with the dot projector, according to Bloomberg.

According to the report, Apple did not give its suppliers extra time in addition to the standard two-year lead time to get the new, hard technology correct.

The iPhone X's facial ID system has proved to be a controversial feature, with question marks continuing to hang over its safety and effectiveness.

However, that doesn't help Apple save face if the company still can't keep up with demand for the iPhone X. Ming-Chi Kuo, a dependable Apple analyst from KGI Securities, predicted last week that only 2 to 3 million iPhone X units would be available for the device's November 3rd launch.
