Undoubtedly the new flagship of Apple is being one of those phones that go where they pass does not leave anyone indifferent. And not only for its high price, technical characteristics, but also for the limited availability of the iPhone X. Well, this is changing rapidly and delivery times are drastically reduced Could it be a result of poor sales?
One of the most recognizable aspects of the new iPhone X is without a doubt the facial recognition it does with its front-facing camera. A facial recognition that has been tested against the iPhone X to know which is more reliable.
What is the real reason for the increased availability of the iPhone X?
Much has been talked about iPhone sales in the last two years, having witnessed for the first time in history a decline in these respect from previous years.
There has also been much speculation that the high price of the iPhone X could have been a brake on its sales, and this coupled with the limited availability of the terminal would have convinced many potential buyers to take other alternatives in the market.
But it seems that nothing is further from reality, based on the information we have known today.
Because one of the benchmark analysts in the sector and specialized in Apple has revealed its sales forecasts and availability of the new iPhone X, and finally it seems that Apple has stepped on the accelerator of its production to finally normalize the availability of this.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities it has gone from producing 50,000 to 150,000 units a day of the iPhone X to no less than 450,000 to 550,000 units a day, which is undoubtedly an important exponential leap, and that is the main reason why the delivery times of the iPhone X are shrinking fast and they will do it even more.
To the question of whether this greater availability responds to a lower demand, according to the data of this analyst would not be so, because although it is expected that in the first quarter of 2018 the sales are lower than those projected by Apple, these will be compensated with a greater demand for the terminal in the remainder of 2017.
Surely it also has much to do in this greater availability and increased production the arrival last week of the iPhone X to 70 new countries around the world, something that has undoubtedly conditioned the production plans of Apple.
In any case, we will have to see how the market responds to the iPhone X when the fever of Christmas shopping disappears
