Sales of the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X were much higher than the iPhone 8, which is why Apple decided to reduce the G-8 production by 50-60% this quarter. This authoritative analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported, referring to his own sources in the market.
As writes MacRumors, basically reduction of manufacture will mention key supplier Apple – company Pegatron. Instead of the iPhone 8, the manufacturer will give up its production capacity for the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, which are in great demand.
Earlier last week, researchers at Canalys reported that the iPhone 8 Plus outperformed the iPhone 8 by nearly a million sold smartphones. It is noteworthy that this is the first case in the history of the Plum series when the “older” smartphone proved to be more popular than the 4.7-inch screen.
Apple does not disclose the exact number of iPhones sold by model. Analysts do it for it, as retailers readily open data on implemented models. Against the background of high demand for the iPhone X, Apple will increase the production of this smartphone by 35-45%, Kuo said.
