Apple has announced that the production of the iPhone 8 was cut out by 50 percent. This is due to several problems with the company's supply partners. A post from Bloomberg Gadfly reported that the company is now facing with supply issues on the day they decided to switch to OLED technology and other additional features for the iPhone X.

Technology columnist Tim Culpan revealed that Apple is a well-known company that uses a complicated supply chain. Its manufacturers are always working together with their suppliers when it comes to deciding the quality, capacity, and capability of the device components.

However, the decision to change to OLED for the upcoming iPhone has made things more complicated for Apple.

Problems in OLED technology

Apple has decided to equip the all-new iPhone X with OLED technology and achieving new blueprint. This would allow users to unlock their smartphones using a fingerprint sensor at the front. However, the technology was not correctly crafted, which led Apple to switch again to Face ID. Even though the Touch ID could make a return in the future mobile device, it still appears that the company has made a big-time mistake.

Culpan did not mention if the situation is just a temporary setback or not. He also didn't disclose when the company can solve the problems with its Supply Chain issue.

However, Apple should be prepared for the worst in the future.
