Though the rumour mill Was churning out a lot around the 2018 iPhone Household, a Fresh report gives a glimpse in the market performance of last year’s iPhone X.It is said that the iPhone X was outsold by the iPhone 8 show, consisting of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The most recent revelation comes only after Apple posted its fresh quarterly earnings that revealed a marginal, 3 percentage growth in the entire iPhone earnings – with shipments figure reaching the landmark of 52.2 million units. CEO Tim Cook, nevertheless, acclaimed the iPhone X as Apple’s “bestselling” phone.
The report, which stems in Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, highlights that in the US and the top five European markets, the iPhone 8 series jointly sold in marginally higher numbers than the iPhone X. Kantar believes that this could have emerged as ancient iPhone X demand being fulfilled with all the lower-priced iPhone 8 versions. Having said that, it’s reported that the iPhone X helped Apple increase its market share, at least in urban China, to 22.1 percent.
The difference between the revenue of this iPhone 8 show and iPhone X is considerable since the former has two different versions. But it shows that Apple was not able to attract a high number of clients with the iPhone X that has a lot of new features, for instance, thin-bezel Super Retina screen, vertically placed dual rear camera setup, and a TrueDepth system-backed Face ID, all which have become a reference for many Android makers. Some prior reports even claimed the Cupertino company started cutting back on the iPhone X manufacturing because of its poor sales. Moreover, it is rumoured that the flagship iPhone model will reach the ending of life sometime “around mid-2018”. This is more likely a development to give space to the next-generation iPhone versions which are so far in the headlines with their iPhone X-like capabilities.
