    Foxconn assembly lines initially started with 60 for the iPhone XR, recently the number came down to 45 production lines. This means that Foxconn might only produce some more 100,000 units daily to reflect the new demand outlook.

    Pegatron the Taiwanese manufacturer company has also stopped the production plans of the iPhone XR. Apple has also asked smaller iPhone assembler Wistron to be on standby for rush orders. Surprisingly the company asked assemblers for more production of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus units. "Suppliers of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are getting a combined order of around 5 million more units," sources told Nikkei Asian Review.

    Earlier the company planned for the production of 20 million units for the older iPhone models, and now the figure raised to 25 million units. Foxconn is the main supplier for iPhone 8 Plus, while on the other side Pegatron is behind the supply of iPhone 8.
