Apple's highly anticipated mixed reality headset, the Apple Vision Pro, has faced a setback in production as demand falls short of initial expectations. TF Securities International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reveals insights into Apple's decision to slash production numbers, indicating a shift in the company's projections.

Apple Vision Pro- Decrease in Production Numbers

According to Kuo's recent analysis, Apple has significantly reduced its production targets for the Apple Vision Pro. Initial estimates suggested a market consensus of 700,000 to 800,000 units, but Apple has revised this down to a modest 400,000 to 450,000 units. The decision reflects a conservative outlook on customer demand, influenced by lower-than-expected interest in the mixed reality headset since its launch.

This strategic move aligns with Apple's cautious approach in light of subdued demand trends.
