Because this is a real metric (not some opinion piece) yah thrives this tiphones are awesome phones!!! With great conmpetition from Samsung and some other vendors - people still choose iPhones - that’s real! You can not pay for this kind of facts vs some opinion articles whether android or Apple. This proves that Apple haters are full of smoke - thief preferneces are their own and do not speak for the consumer. This proves year in and year out - that Apple builds a great flagship - and even I, if I could afford a new one, would buy it fully knowing what android offers.

Youre trying ro trun preference into some thesis. If you prefer a product, no matter what it costs worth it or not, youre gonna buy it no matter what else exist. As long as you perceive its good enough for you. It doesnt mattee if its ugly, behind rhe curve, boring, outdated, featureless, in fire, will electrocute you or blow up in your face. Who cares why abyome choose what they like? I dont what phome you like, but if you want to bash another product just because you perceive yours as better is wherebi have an issue. Apple can sell whatever how many pbomes they want. I dont care. If tbey dont make the one i wqnt to buy i wont be buying it. You are welcome too and id be as happy for you as i will ne j ehatever i buy. Sales are a metric of whether a product is good or not. Terrible products outsell better products everyday in all.product categories

Than why do you trolls calling Apple users derogatory names? Your ass cares, so much it pissed you off - and you come to every Appel article to whine every day - every hour.

Most of the professors and scientists I have worked with since about 2009 or 2010, an overwhelming majority of them, have been rocking iPhones. Does that make them simple-minded? I don't think the phone makes the mind. I am a somewhat intelligent person who happens to use Android (mostly because I was a poor college student, and now I'm still looking for real work and I'm about to have to start paying off my student debt), but my phone says almost nothing about my intellect.

Good post. I use iOS and Android, so what does that say about me? I'm a free thinker, who likes what he likes, and buys what he wants.

"iPhone sales exceeded our expectations. In last week and a half of September, we began shipping iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus to customers in more than 50 countries. Instantly became our two most popular iPhone models and have been in every week since." But I thought iPhone 7 sold better

Most popular for those weeks. That doesn't mean the iPhone 7 didn't sell more during the corresponding weeks of it's launch.

Samsung is making more money than Apple selling smartphones, chips, memories, screens and other components!!

What is your point? You cannot compared between Apple and Samsung. Apple is another world.

Apple is gonna hit that 1 trill, depends a lot on the X though. It's gonna be a hit, but the 1 trill comes faster if it's a mega hit. Do ya thang Apple, keep the iPad living. Best tablet out, bar none. Note 8, iPad Pro 12.9, Apple Pencil, and Gear S3...I'm set.

I just sent an email to cnbc and bloomberg advising them to put on the lower left corner of the tv a countdown time to Apple reaching $1 trillion. Damn those guys are just printing money like it's nobody's business.

Do you actually have a life, or a girlfriend, or do you just get off to Apple making money? I don't care what any company makes money wise, just make the products I like. That's man ish.

Tim Cook is full of lies. iPhone 7 was released and all we heard is how well it sold from all the carriers. I haven't heard this from the iPhone 8 or the iPhone X. Something smells fishy. I don't trust what Tim is saying.

The iPhone 7 sales basically havent gone down since the iPhome 8 was released. Am sire Apple has sold lots of 8s. But they did drop production by 50%. So it isnt selling as well as the 7 is, after a month. P.A. already reported the 6S and 7 sales pi ked up. Apple claims the X pre-order sales was better than expected. Without knowing what they expected can mean anything. Tbey coukd have expexted 10M prworders and got 15M and rbat wpukd be better than expected. We wipl know once year in figures hit. 2015 - 220M 2016 - 211M 2017 - guessing 205M if the X can be produced. Because selling on preorder is one thing. But until its actually ships and charged to a form of payment, it isnt sold yet.

Apple fans are so brainwashed it's unbelivable. They are the only set of people who overpay for Apples Toys and then fanatically praise the company for scamming them. Most manufacturers (in any industry) aim for a clear profit of around 20% on thier products. Apple makes a clear profit of 35% on every phone they sell and thats after taxes (when they pay them), paying money for Apple stores etc. This is achieved buy overcharging the herd who will pay any amount, worth it or not to have thier latest fashion accessory. It's like having your pocket picked while walking down the street then congratulating the thief and wishing them well on thier way to 100 grand. It's an amazing scam by Apple and the sheep fall for it every year.

Units sold has peaked two years ago. No growth since. But they really do make profit. True believers are just so easy to milk. Outdated models are cheap to produce.
