    I am sure it will when the next phone(s) come out but they aren't just going to cancel it any time soon.
    You noticed the source? Verizon store manager? Lmao. People are so gullible to believe anything.

    Unfortunately the X wasnt intended to sell in large quantities in 2017. They were only estimating 40 million by the end of the 2017 year. They were expecting to ramp up production and sell the majority in 2018, estimating between 80 and 90 million. That number has been cut in half and now its estimated at 40 million.

    They basically lost 1/3 of their anticipated sales. Thats not good.
    Okay. I’ll take your word for it.

    I still maintain the X was meant to be a limited edition and wasnt going to be sold once the new cycle began. It was meant to be an anniversary phone that paved the way for future devices.
    Agreed

    I don't trust any store or carrier reps. From any carrier. Especially when ti comes to something of this nature. A lot of times they don't truly know what they're talking about. I have seen way too many make stuff up on the spot.

    Only the 8 has been cut this much dating back to the 6s. The 6s was cut 30% in the first qtr of 2016. The 7 was cut only 10% in the first qtr of 2017 and now the X is cut 50%. The 8 was the worst case by being cut 50% in November and December of 2017.

    The issue with the X being cut though is it was intentionally produced at lower volumes than normal during the holiday season. It was expected to double that volume in 2018. They projected 80-90 million but are now cutting it to 40 million. Their strategy didnt work and they should have produced double in 2017 and lowered it in 2018.
    The issue with production in 2017 was parts availability. They were working on some of the features, most likely the FaceID, almost right up to the fall event. Because of this, the X was delayed and it took time for the factories to ramp up production -- particularly as there were rumors of some of the new chips having a high failure rate in the initial production runs of the new chips. They were going to be able to ramp up production of the phone in 2018 as the chip supply became stable, as the factories worked out the kinks in producing the chips.

    A credible source told me that Google hired LG to ask HTC to contact Huawei to see Samsung was making the new “iPhone Galaxy X”. My source is not an insider, but an analyst who’s never gotten anything wrong.

    "iPhone X surpassed our expectations and has been our top-selling iPhone every week since it shipped in November,” says Tim Cook.

    Sounds like a phone that is being cancelled, right? Haha

    I was just in the local T-Mobile corporate store today and was asking the sales folks what the hottest devices are at the moment and without hesitation they said the iPhone X and the Note 8 and they have a hard time keeping them in stock. So even though I have heard they are cutting back on production, I think the X is going to be around for a while.

    I also spent time asking the two sales folks about how they liked their iPhone X and they love the device and said after a short adjustment getting use to the gesture concept, they have forgot about the home button and would find it hard to go back to using one, thats some positive feedback.

    By the way, I also helped out on a sale of an X to a couple who where on the fence between the X and a 8 plus, after I did a demo and let them play with my device, they both bought the X, mission successful.

    Where are the “iPhone X is a flop” guys now ?
    I think they are hiding along with the “Apple is doomed” folks

    Don’t think it’s canceled but I feel they will make changes and bring back the option for a virtual home button to make the haters happy.

    I doubt that it will be cancelled. Apple rumors always swirl around like a tasmanian devil on steroids, and I admit, from time to time, I get sucked into the rumor whirlpool too! I also don't believe that sales are poor. The X may be a special edition, to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the iPhone.... but instead of being dropped, I'm sure that it will be the foundation for future models. And as always, time will tell!

    Apple reported over $78 Billion in revenue for Q1. That's a record high. They must be doing something right, even if the X isn't doing that great.

    Yes considering Tim Cook said last week on the earnings call that it’s been the best selling iPhone every week since launch, and it’s been 3 months, that it is selling very well. Sure the iPhone 8 takes away sales but Apple doesn’t mind. They are still getting sales and giving the buyers more options.

    Not disputing anything, but when was it established that the X is a special limited edition commemorating a 10 year anniversary?

    Yeah. I find it weird that it’s just being classified as such out of nowhere. It’s a phone that begins the transition of a new hardware design. It’ll obviously be discontinued at some point in time. I can see it being an iPhone 5 situation where it didn’t actually go a second year but got a new outer shell to help reduce costs of production and got rebranded as the 5C.

    I can see them slapping some aluminum or plastic around the sides and selling it as the....Xc for 3/4 the price.

    That doesn't appear to be the case. Seems like their low budget phone will be 6.1", aluminum bezel, and LCD screen.
