Apple is slated to slash iPhone production by 10% in Q1 2017. According to a Yahoo-backed research company Flurry, the holiday season was a mega hit for Apple especially iPhone.

The company garnered a record sales between December 19 and 25. When it comes to mobile activation, the iPhone and iPad accounted for 44 percent, which is comparatively higher than Samsung.

According to a leading tech portal, this is not the first time the Cupertino-based tech giant has cut the iPhone production. It occured during Q1 2016 as well. However, the company slashed only 30 percent around that time.

In 2015, Apple handsets and iPad accounted for 50 percent of all activations. However, Samsung managed to fetch only 19.8 percent of all activations. Hence, Apple clearly wins the race when it comes to gadgets and activations.

Meanwhile, Apple is gearing up to manufacture iPhones in Bengaluru in partnership with Wistron. It is expected that the production will start by the first week of April 2017 in batches with theplant gaining full capacity by the end of 2017.
