iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus beat popularity records
Find out how popular this or that model of iPhone is, often it is possible not so much from analysts and financial reports of Apple, as from the research of third-party organizations. So, experts from Localytics have calculated how many iPhone owners switched to iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
If individually new smartphones showed not the most impressive results, then their overall share was higher than that of the same iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 in the first week of sales. So, the new iPhone won 1.6% of all users of smartphones from Apple, while the same figure for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus was at 1.3%.
It is noteworthy that the iPhone X was much more popular than the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus a week after the start of sales, experts say. If we talk about the dynamics of the number of implemented smartphones in general, then the year 2017 interrupted the fall in sales, although it did not reach the level of 2015, when Apple sold 230 million iPhones.
The study was conducted on the basis of data from 70 million iOS-devices around the world. Information on the iPhone X was collected from 3 to 5 November inclusive.
