The iPhone X's $1,000 price tag scared everyone away

Yet another report suggests that Apple is cutting production volumes of the iPhone X. The price of the phone is probably to blame.

Since launch, consumers I've talked to have always called it the "$1,000 iPhone." It costs even more if you want storage, and friends I've spoken with have suggested they've either settled on the cheaper iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, or are waiting to see what Apple does next year instead.

It's bizarre, since it's the best iPhone I've ever used.

If the reports of production slashing are true, perhaps people don't see enough value in iPhone X — and it's features like Face ID, a new OLED display or fancier cameras — to pay $1,000 or more. I think they're worth the extra money, but I'm also the CNBC gadget writer and not an everyday consumer.

A tad more interesting: A separate report from earlier this week said Apple hasn't changed its iPhone 8 production forecast, which suggests that Apple rightly predicted those sales but expected the iPhone X to be much more popular than it is.

Perhaps Apple should have cut the cost of the phone by, say, $50 or $100. A $900 or $950 iPhone doesn't have such a scary-sounding ring as the "$1,000" iPhone, does it? Maybe then customers would have been more excited to pick one up.

why don't they just drop it and put some new commercials?
people just have iphone burnout generally. i still have my 6s and it works okay enough.
they shouldn't have been updating ios so often and the phones themselves
slow and steady wins the race
