Now latest reports are indicating that iPhone 8 sales are low, as iPhone X sales are going to be huge.
Oh No! iPhone 8 Sales Are Low, As iPhone X Sales Are Going To Be Huge
It was last September 12 when the tech giant Apple introduced to the world its new iPhone X (to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the iPhone) as well as the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus.
The new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus has been on sale since last September 19, but sales are a let down considering the company’s expectations. According to rumors, such a scenario has already led the Cupertino giant to significantly reduce production.
That the new iPhone 8 was the least sold in the first weekend (since 2013), and the blame for such a scenario may even be the iPhone X that has created high expectations for users but has not yet hit the market (it will only come on November 3). On the other hand, there are also those who complain about the high price of the new iPhone 8.
Due to (probably) these two factors, whoever wants a smartphone, in this case, an iPhone, has opted for the iPhone 7 which is at a more affordable price and that compares, a lot, to the iPhone 8.
Rogers Communication’s chief executive, Canada’s largest mobile network, said on Thursday that demand for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which began shipping in September, was “anemic.” According to Reuters, weak sales of the iPhone 8 even drove the tech giant Apple down nearly 3 percent, according to the data.
Some analysts and investors have already questioned this strange strategy of launching to the company.
US telco AT&T revealed last week that post-paid handset upgrades in the third quarter fell nearly 900,000 compared to a year ago. According to some rumors, the tech giant Apple has already reduced its production of the new iPhones by 50%.
