In every release of iPhone the tech market prepares itself to withstand the storm of buyers but on the 10th iPhone launch the market is still calm. Is iPhone 8 causing some technical issues?
The iPhone 8, with all the exclusive advanced features is supposed to be huge moment for Apple and is also a massive step forward in iPhone design that will break Apple out of its current boring design out. After all iPhone 8 is the revolutionary Next Big Thing but it doesn’t seem happening.
Well, the record of Apple’s iPhones have sold out rather quickly when offered for pre-order. It was the first time, Apple hasn’t been hit widespread sellout of nervous handsets.
After a survey less than 400 US iPhone users, it is found that 16 percent expect to upgrade to a new iPhone this Fall, compared to 15 percent last years.
Well on the contrary iPhone 7 models are actually out selling iPhone 8. A meaningful portion of customers are buying iPhone 7 in lieu of the iPhone 8.
iPhone 8might is seeing it’s sales stymied by its own iPhone X which is nothing but a simple up gradation of iPhone 8, whereas the company did it’s best to pitch the IPhone 8 as a desirable option, featuring an enhanced glass design, superfast A11 Bionic processor, and then wireless charging, customers seem to be more interested in iPhone X which offers boatload of enhancements, including an all new design, the first OLED display from Apple, and a new facial-scanning feature called Face ID.
Sources said that carriers have also been less wiling to offer promotions on the iPhone 8 than they were on iPhone 7. Customer concerns, coupled with pricing considerations, might be pushing people to the iPhone 7, which is still is a fine option in today’s market, and it is more affordable.
The big test for iPhone 8, however, might just be when iPhone X itself shore shelves on November 3.
