The iPhone XR didn’t picture well in the opinion of the average consumers. Still, the handset managed to become the best selling 2018 iPhone model in the US. Well, the statistics are from the sales in the last three months in the country. With that said, Apple cut own the production of iPhone XR. Apple must rethink on its strategies, as the numbers for sales of the other iPhones are declining rapidly.
If we look at the sales for the iPhone XR in its first month, it made 32% of its total sales. In comparison, the iPhone XS duo made up for the 35% of total sales according to info by CIRP.
iPhone XS Duo Declining Sales
Between October and December, the iPhone XR made a total of 39% of iPhone sales making it as the most popular iPhone since the iPhone 7 back in 2017. The iPhone XS duo made a combined sales of 26% of total shares of the iPhones sold by the company.
The iPhone XS duo was made available to the public in September. Moreover, the company made extensive sales before the release of the XR. The charts don’t include the sales before the launch of iPhone XR.
If we compare the sales of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, the larger model made a massive number of sales in comparison to the smaller one. The declining sales of the iPhone XS duo are not good for Apple. Though the company is selling out the iPhone XR by large margins, it doesn’t benefit the overall profits of the company.
The main reason behind the sales of iPhone XR is its low cost for 128GB configuration. People are not satisfied with the 64GB configuration of the entry-level iPhone XS duo. The higher storage options cost a lot more than the iPhone XR with 128GB configuration. The entry-level iPhone XR costs 50$ less than the one with double the storage. What do you think about this?
