Apple (AAPL) may already be making plans for its multiple versions of the iPhone X, according to a report this morning from Rosenblatt Securities’s Jun Zhang, who cites the possibility the company has told suppliers it will cut orders for components in the June quarter by as much as 10 million units to make way for the next wave of devices based on the iPhone X design. "Based on our most current research we believe that AAPL may be planning to cut iPhone X production for the June quarter by as much as 10 million units reducing output to 15 million,” writes Zhang. "This move drives our latest view that Apple could be planning to stop iPhone X production midyear to ramp up for the various models of the coming Xs." Zhang, who has a Buy rating on Apple shares, and a $180 price target, is expecting the company will split the iPhone X offering into two models, a 5.8-inch device and a 6.5-inch device, both using displays based on OLED technology, and then a third, cheaper device, using an LCD screen.
