It has been almost a month since the unveiling of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. While the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are already up for purchase, Apple has not yet started the shipping of the iPhone X.
The 10th-anniversary model is expected to ship on November 3. Hence, Apple will supply 1 million units to those who have ordered the iPhone X. However, Brightwire Inc has shared a tweet stating something that will not make iPhone fans disappointed. The tweet by the publication reads, "Apple may delay shipment of first 1 million iPhone X handsets to December as yield rate dips below 10%, sources say."

The publication, however, did not reveal the sources from which the information has been obtained. So it is unclear whether the prediction will come true or not. Also, the tweet doesn't specify which phase of the production process is causing the reduction in the yield rate. If you recall, earlier reports had suggested Apple faced issues including low yields for the OLED panels and problems with the 3D sensors.
However, keeping in mind the reputation of Apple, chances of happening this are very slim.
This is not the first time we are hearing something like this. Even before the launch of this years iPhones, numerous reports had said the Apple iPhone X (known as iPhone 8 at that time) launch would get delayed. Proving all the speculations false, the Cupertino-giant unveiled its latest flagship on September 12.
As for the pricing, the iPhone X is priced at Rs. 89,000 for the 64GB variant and Rs. 102,000 for the 128GB variant.
