29 MEEELLION iPhone Xs flogged... only to be end-of-life'd by summer?

Apple globally shipped 29 million units of the eye-wateringly expensive iPhone X in the two months after it was launched in late 2017, falling short of consensus estimates from analysts.

Sales of the $999 handset – priced at £999 in Britain – were expected to reach 30 million, said Ben Stanton, analyst at Canalys, which collated the number of Xs that found a home during thre period.

"It was initially thought the pre-orders would exceed supply for Q4, so the only limiting factor would be Apple's production process. This [largely] proved not to be the case," he told The Register.
