Apple is finally selling its iPhone XR clear case

Google Pixel 3 Report: iPhone Sales Fail Triggered "Fire Drill" at Apple

Over the past few weeks, multiple reports claimed that iPhone XR isn't selling as well as Apple had hoped, which led to the company cutting back on shipping estimates and considering lowering the price of the smartphone in some regions.

When the iPhone XR went on sale in October this year, Apple didn't have any official case for consumers to purchase.

Mention must be made that all the latest models like iPhone XS, XS Max and XR are not eligible for $29 replacement batteries. Apple isn't exactly known for offering such steep discounts on its products, so it can be assumed that the iPhone XR is really struggling to gain traction with customers. This effectively lowers the price of a new iPhone ... without Apple having to go through the embarrassment of actually lowering the price.

An Apple exec last week told CNET that the iPhone XR was the "most popular iPhone each and every day since it became available".

A new report details the emergency response within Apple when it became clear that its new iPhones were not selling as well as expected.

Apple's iPhone suppliers just won't stop reporting worrying results.

How much does this promotion helps in increasing iPhone XR's sales, is something that remains to be seen. Apple says its cheaper iPhone XR has been the best-selling iPhone since its launch. Apple accounts for just over 80 percent of Cirrus' revenue, according to its most recent 10-K filing.
