iPhone X Supercycle: A new rumor claims that the iPhone X supercycle won’t start until 2018, reports MacRumors. This rumor comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a recent research note. Kuo claims that problems with production of the TrueDepth camera in the iPhone X will delay the supercycle to 2018. He says that the problems will mostly be resolved during Apple’s fourth quarter, which will allow more units to be shipped next year. Analysts have been predicting a large portion of customers will upgrade to the iPhone X and it has been dubbed a supercycle.
