Next month, according to numerous sources, the announcement of the updated series of Apple smartphones is planned. Experts are already assessing their market prospects; as well as making forecasts for the development of the company as a whole. The push for the iPhone’s growth next year will be provided by the SE version with support for 5G networks, according to JP Morgan.
According to representatives of this investment bank, next year the iPhone SE model with 5G support should appear on the market, which will push those who expected to get an Apple mobile device that can work in fifth-generation networks, but not overpay much, to update smartphones. If this year Apple sells about 246 million smartphones; then next year iPhone sales will be able to reach a comparable value precisely due to the appearance of the iPhone SE with 5G support.
For this year, sales of 246 million units should be a record. In Apple’s 2022 calendar, the fiscal year will begin in October this year. According to JP Morgan, in the next fiscal year, the company will be able to generate $ 377.6 billion; which is 5% more than the projected amount of Apple revenue in the current fiscal year. In 2023, according to the authors of the analytical note, Apple’s revenue will grow sequentially by another 7%. The authors of the forecast set the target for the market value of the company’s shares at $ 180; with the current value of $ 146.7.
