Those who have not purchased the new Apple iPhone 6 may be resisting while they are wondering if it is all it is cracked up to be. According to analysts, it is as good as the hype, as the sales of the iPhone 6 do not seem to be slowing down, as users are finding that they enjoy the newest Apple product. Sources state that the newest iPhone is even bigger than expected, in terms of popularity (even though the phone is actually bigger literally, as well). However, part of these larger numbers could also be due to the release of the product in China, where it performed so well that it out-performed sales in Europe. As Apple enjoys the increased profit from their second quarter sales, which only continues to keep with that trend, analysts are weighing in on why they believe the phone has had more sales so far, than those that have come before it.
According to Tech Radar, an iPhone 6 is sold every ten seconds. From the time the product was released it has been a great seller, bringing Apple large sums of money in each quarter. Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty states that those large sums of money will only continue, as expected numbers for delivery and sales of the newest iPhone continue to rise. Huberty has changed her estimates to larger numbers already for the next quarter. Many analysts are calling the newest iPhone the best version yet, claiming it well over-shadows its former relatives. However, with a price that is still a bit high, many are reluctant to take the leap from previous versions to the newest one.
But all sources and many consumers agree that aside from price the Apple iPhone 6 is all it is cracked up to be. But speaking of cracked up, the phone does still have its usual problems like a screen that cracks rather easy when it incurs pressure, a low resolution screen (at least lower than other products), and a more recent dislike of size. Though many find the size appealing, reviewers have actually used it as a reason not to buy because it “does not fit well in your pocket.” Other reviewers have marveled about the size, calling the iPhone 6 the “mini, mini iPad.”
Nevertheless, sales of the product are at a high and stocks are also rising, due to this. One major reason that the iPhone 6 sales are doing so well, recently, is because the company teamed up in China to sale the product and it was a bit hit in the country. Some of the new features could also be behind the increased sales, as Apple lists that the iPhone 6 has a Retina HD Display, a thinner size, an increased battery life, an enhanced camera lens, and much more, so that users will find that the product is all that it is cracked up to be.
As the iPhone 5s/5c came out not too long ago, some users are still paying off the previous version. Though most do not wait long after a new product comes out to jump at the chance to own one, Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will most likely still be selling for a long time to come, probably until the iPhone 7 comes out. Users who have already bought their new iPhones can thoroughly enjoy all that the product has to offer and users who are looking forward to being able to buy one in the future will be able to form their own opinions of the phone. Analysts are still in strong belief that the iPhone 6 is Apple’s greatest version so far, and one that will continue to bring in huge profits.
