As it turns out there are too many who are willing to pay over a thousand euros to get an iPhone X.
The demand for the device for its first weekend of release seems much higher than the previous version, the iPhone 8, something which I imagine would not be a surprise for Apple.
As KGI Securities had predicted, the existence of the iPhone X could cut sales of the iPhone 8, although the iPhone 8 is more than just a "S." upgrade.
But let's look at the numbers:
According to the information gathered by the company Localytics, the iPhone X surpassed the iPhone 8 in its first weekend of release.
The iPhone X reached 0,93% of the total market share in the first weekend. So it easily reached 0,7% of the iPhone 8. But it continues to be below 2,3% of the market share of the iPhone 6 models in 2014.
For the record, let us mention the percentages of 1,3% and 1,2% of the iPhone 6S and 7 in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
However, as Localytics points out, there are more iPhones on the market today than there were in 2014, so that might reduce the rates a bit. So the company seems to say in simple Greek, in the end they shave the groom.
To be fair, Apple friends should not say that we are biased, we should mention that the percentage of iPhone X could be higher, but there were not enough devices available.
I guess Apple friends were right, the device leaves like hot cakes, and everyone is happy. And those who will have the new iPhone X (for whatever reason they want it) but also Apple which once again marks another success, holding its position in the market, but also in the Stock Exchange.
However, it may be too early to draw conclusions, as situations have already occurred for the first time in the history of the iPhone. The phonearena reports that some returned their devices because they were not happy when they played a little with the new Apple device.
