iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max Buyers Not Bothered by the High Price
If you thought that the high price of the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max is reason enough for the two devices to fail, this is not the case.
Data published by the Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) indicates that the two iPhones have recorded quite a strong launch, with sales accounting for nearly 16 percent of all iPhone sales during the last quarter that ended September 29.
iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max each account for 8% of shipments in the United States, a chart shows, while iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus represented 16% and 17%, respectively, of all phones sold last year by Apple during the same period.
iPhone XR on its way
iPhone X launched later than usual, and CIRP says it accounted for 14 percent of the sales in the beginning of the next quarter.
“The iPhone launch quarter is always tricky to understand, and this one is trickier than others” said Josh Lowitz, CIRP Partner and Co-Founder.
