Though the rumour mill Was churning out a lot around the 2018 iPhone Household, a new report gives a glimpse at the market performance of the past year’s iPhone X.It’s said that the iPhone X has been outsold by the iPhone 8 show, comprising 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 from the entire iPhone sales – with imports figure reaching the landmark of 52.2 million units. CEO Tim Cook, nevertheless, acclaimed the iPhone X as Apple’s “bestselling” phone.
The record, which comes from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, highlights that in the US and also the top five European markets, the iPhone 8 chain jointly sold in marginally higher numbers compared to iPhone X. Kantar considers that this might have emerged as early iPhone X need has been fulfilled with all the lower-priced iPhone 8 versions. Having said this, it’s reported that the iPhone X aided Apple improve its market share, at least in urban China, to 22.1 percent.
The gap between the sales of the iPhone 8 show and iPhone X is significant since the former contains two distinct versions. However, it shows that Apple wasn’t able to attract a high number of clients together with the iPhone X which has a bunch of new features, for instance, thin-bezel Super Retina display, vertically placed dual back camera setup, along with a TrueDepth system-backed Face ID, all of which have become a reference for many Android manufacturers. Some previous reports claimed the Cupertino company started cutting back on the iPhone X manufacturing because of its poor sales. Moreover, it’s hypothesized the flagship iPhone version will reach the end of life sometime “around mid-2018”. This is more likely a growth to provide space to the next-generation iPhone models that are up to now in the headlines with their iPhone X-like features.
