There have been a couple of complaints regarding the new iPhone 12 smartphone. Since its launch, there have been reports of its poor battery performance. However, these down points are not stopping customers from purchasing this phone. According to a new report, due to hot sales, Apple iPhone 12 has increased its order by 2 million units. The company is also optimistic about the shipments of Apple’s product lines next year.
Since this generation of iPhone 12 is based on a combination of multiple models, 5G support, thinning and weight reduction, and replacement of existing models, Cinda Securities believes that Apple’s iPhone 12 sales are expected to exceed expectations. Cinda Securities predicts that Apple’s supply chain orders in the fourth quarter of this year will be between 80 million and 85 million, and sales in 2021 are expected to reach 230 – 240 million units.
The iPhone 11 shipped 75 million units in the fourth quarter of last year. Since only two of the Apple iPhone 12 series are on sale, and they arrived later than last year’s release date, consumer feedback is still unclear. The final sales volume needs further observation.
