Analyst says Apple sold 6 million units of the iPhone X on Black Friday with 15 million sold to date
Zhang says that weekly production of the iPhone X is now up to 3 million units a week, and next month that figure will increase by another 33% to 4 million a week. Remember when many analysts were concerned that there would be severe shortages of the device because of the complexity involved in manufacturing it? Those fears are obviously no longer hanging over Apple and its fan base like a dark cloud.
Rosenblatt is hiking its prediction of December quarter iPhone X shipments to 30 million handsets from its previous forecast of 27-28 million. For the March quarter, the securities house expects normal seasonal factors to come into play which will cut iPhone X shipments to 40 million units from 45 million. Of the five million units cut from the March estimate, three million were pushed forward to December.
The bottom line is that demand for the Apple iPhone X is strong despite early talk of shortages, and the high price of the device.
