Apple’s iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X are not achieving the desired target in terms of sales. These three newly launched models of 2017 have shown a regular figure in terms sales while compared to the last years’ iPhone 7, which is still outselling iPhone 8.
an analyst of Wall Street Ackerman reveals a surprising fact as he says,
“Apple iPhone X has been below initial expectations as users appear to have gravitated toward the previous iPhone models.”
Although Apple’s 2017 flagship models are selling adequately yet the sales are not enough to say that Apple has started its long bull run. These decreased sales could ruin the Apple’s vision to be a trillion-dollar company.
According to Ackerman, the last quarter of this year which will end in this month, Apple is estimated to ship 90 million iPhone units. That figure is slightly greater than during the last year’s same period of time i.e. 78.29 million units. For the next years first quarter, the analyst predicts to see the Apple’s smartphone shipments to 56 million, which will be somehow greater than 51.2 million of last quarter’s same period of time.
Apple is all set to announce iPhone shipments during the current quarter on January 30th, 2018. Though the new phones model didn’t succeed as expected, yet the combined sales of all iPhones may set new record shipments.
