iPhone X reaches 60m shipments – Counterpoint
When the iPhone X went on sale ten months ago, there was excitement in the air, and Apple was hoping to get huge figures of sale. Well the iPhone X has finally gotten to 60m shipments. Although the figure looks impressive, it may not live up to what Apple was hoping for.
The reason is, it took the iPhone 8 just six months to amass 60 million shipments and in ten months, it had already shipped 90 million units. But this might not worry Apple because of the higher price of the iPhone X compared to the iPhone 8. In the first ten months after its launch, the iPhone X has accumulated almost the same $62B revenue as the iPhone 6 in its first ten months.
The medium shipments record on the iPhone X still does not mean lower revenue, as counterpoint data show, the iPhone X accounted for more revenue alone than each of Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi’s shipments in the past ten months.
The U.S and China recorded more sale of the iPhone X where more than half of all iPhone X was shipped. In comparison, India seems to contribute the lower with just 1% of the overall number.
With the new range to iPhones set to be launched today, Apple revenue is expected to move forward. One notable factor will be the introduction of a cheaper LCD version and two high-priced OLED models.
