iPhone XS Max crushes XS in early sales, Apple analyst says


Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has bad news for those who believe that with its new range XS, Apple has exceeded the limits in terms of price. According to his estimations, the demand on the iPhone XS Max is ” better than expected “. This model would sell 3 to 4 times better than the XS, successor to the iPhone X.

Max customers prefer the intermediate capacity of 256 GB ($1249) while the 512 GB model ($1449) suffer from a marked shortage of flash components of this capacity. Samsung is the only one to provide it to Apple.

For the analyst, there is no doubt that shipments of the XS Max will go up all through the last quarter, driven by the holiday season and demand in Asia.

the next month upcoming iPhone XR, with a lower price than the XS, while offering high-level features, will allow Apple to support its iPhone sales well beyond the first months of launch and purchases of Christmas.

Ming-Chi Kuo shares a volume of 75 to 80 million iPhones sold over the next three months, with an average price rising thanks to this 2018 range (between 750 and 770 $).

It is worth to mention that some users of the iPhone XS and XS Max are experiencing a weaker LTE reception on their devices, when compared to the previous generation iPhones.
