Apple orders the removal of the iPhone XR from circulation due to design failures

Scandal with capital letters that we just met barely an hour ago and that has confirmation by John Ive, Apple's Senior Vice President of Design. The iPhone XR disappears from the company's catalog , and Apple has issued a statement in which its owners are urged to go through an Apple Store, where they will receive a full refund.

At first, this measure, which begins tomorrow and will last until January 3, only has repercussions in the United States and Canada, starting on January 7 will begin globally , so that if you have purchased an iPhone XR, you're going to have to get rid of him. The company of the bitten apple has announced that it will be enough to deliver the iPhone in any Apple Store, and that it will pay the full amount in a gift card with no expiration date.

The reasons for this drastic decision

According to Ive, it has been discovered that this model, unprecedented in size and with features that make it very attractive, has a serious design flaw. This failure can cause a chip to chip out of the telephone chassis over time and to perforate the battery , with the risk that this entails.

And if that were not enough, the units manufactured between week 41 and 45, may suffer from breakage of the lens of the camera lens , rendering it useless and subjecting the device to a repair that they would not want to assume given its complexity. Come on, the Apple skid has been huge.

As soon as this decision is known, Apple shares have fallen by 18 percent on the NASDAQ , and analysts estimate that another drop close to 5 percent could occur on Monday. Bad time for those of Cupertino, their clients and investors. Are we facing the end of an era?
