Apple's iPhone SE sequel reportedly won't be a big revamp

Apple will not kill the iPhone X this year – Report

Nikkei claims that, as a result, Apple has chose to halve the production target for its flagship smartphone in the first quarter of 2018 from 40 million units to 20 million units.

The tech giant told suppliers it would cut its production target for the phone to 20 million units, following slower-than-expected sales in the year-end holiday shopping period in Europe, the USA and China, the Nikkei reported Monday.

Twitter Reacts To Larry Nassar Sentencing
In addition to the resignations, Blackmun's email stated an interim board must be in place by February 28 and then in turn replaced within 12 months.

Apple is said to be maintaining its existing production target of 30M units across the iPhone 7/Plus and 8/Plus ranges.

Several analysts have lowered their estimates for iPhone X shipments in the past few weeks, citing the high price of the device and other factors, with at least three downgrading their rating on the stock. Even if Apple follows form and cuts the price on its 2017 phones once the new models arrive this fall, you still won't find a phone in its lineup that costs as little as the iPhone SE does. A leading Apple analyst says that Apple's resources may be stretched too thin to come out with a successor to its tiniest iPhone.

SpaceX's Falcon Heavy launch is reportedly set for February 6th
The Falcon Heavy carries the largest payload amount since the Saturn V rocket, which carried out a 310,000 pounds into space. The company CEO tweeted yesterday: " Falcon Heavy hold-down firing this morning was good". "Launching in a week or so".

KGI also said that only 13 million units of Apple iPhone X will ship in second quarter of 2018.

The speculation is that the 6.1 inch phone will essentially be a scaled down iPhone X. However, its screen will not be an OLED, but rather an LCD. This display will account for around 70 per cent of LCD panels for the 6.1-inch iPhone.

How to watch the 'blue moon' lunar eclipse
Moreover, it is going to be the first blue moon eclipse in 2018, and this is why many are calling it as "Super Blue Blood Moon ". Mark your calendars for January 20, 2019: a total lunar eclipse will start in the evening and run into the early morning hours.

For now, many investors appear to be focusing on analyst comments and media reports that Apple is dramatically reducing its iPhone X orders with its suppliers. It's also the reason why Apple sells the phone for $1,000 and up. The American company itself is thinking about lowering its sales target for OLED versions of new iPhones to be released this year, focusing more on conventional liquid crystal display versions instead.
