As the queue on most Apple sales outlet worldwide grows shorter than last year’s iPhone 7 launch for the sales of iPhone 8 and 8 plus, however increasing the anticipation for the iPhone X which has grown higher has led to drop of the company sales for the month.
A Taipei based newspaper explained that Apple earlier this month has cut some orders for iPhone 8 close to 50 per cent and has led to poor sales and the company shares has plunged up to 2.8 percent of their share market for the month.
Yes the demand for the super-premium iPhone X which has amazing features like the facial recognition system, the less bezel , wireless charger , emoji and lots has not surprisingly increased than that of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus.
Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple analyst at KGI Securities said recently that “While it takes three to six weeks or more to ship new iPhone models after they are available for pre order, they see the iPhone 8 taking less than one to two weeks. This is due to the iPhone X cannibalisation,” he also added that there have been lots of reports about the iPhone 8 batteries which been reportedly swelling and the device is left apart.
It seems Apple lovers would rather pay more to get the best than pay less to get a second best as the pre order for the iPhone X will begin on the 27th of October and shipping will Start November 3rd and the phone will be priced at $1000, hopefully the queue on the sales outlets will increase more than that of iPhone 8 and 8 plus sales.
