Apple has reportedly requested Foxconn and Pegatron, smartphone assemblers responsible for assembling Apple’s latest flagship iPhone XR, launched last month, to halt plans for additional production lines dedicated to the device.

Apple had previously asked Wistron, a smaller iPhone assembler, to stand by for rush orders; but the company has since been notified that it will receive no orders for the iPhone XR this season, Nikkei reports, citing supply chain sources.

For the Foxconn side, it first prepared nearly 60 assembly lines for Apple’s XR model, but recently uses only around 45 production lines as its top customer said it does not need to manufacture that many by now. – Nikkei Assian

Apple has yet to comment on the development.
