Apple’s iPhone 11 Was The Biggest Seller Every Week Of The Holiday Quarter
Apple shared its quarterly results yesterday, which means we now know that the company had a record holiday quarter. Even iPhones sold well, with the iPhone 11 proving hugely popular in particular.
According to Tim Cook, during Apple’s earnings call, the iPhone 11 helped the iPhone as a whole to reach $56 billion during the December quarter. And with growth in the US, UK, France, and Singapore reaching double digits, it was the iPhone 11 that proved the most popular.
On iPhone; revenue in the December quarter was 56 billion dollars. Again, that’s up 8% over a year ago, thanks to the exceptional demand for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. In fact, iPhone 11 was our top-selling model every week during the December quarter, and the three new models were our three most popular iPhones. We had double-digit growth in many developed markets, including the U.S., the U.K., France, and Singapore, and also grew double digits in emerging markets led by strong performances in Brazil, mainland China, India, Thailand, and Turkey. These new models are by far the best iPhones we’ve ever shipped with advanced technologies, an unprecedented leap in battery life to easily get through the day and a best in class camera experience.
When Apple shared similar stats in early 2019, it was clear then that the iPhone XR was hugely popular compared with the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The combination of a smaller asking price and most of the same features makes these phones super-popular.
With the iPhone 9 likely to take the budget iPhone crown later this year and itself sport the same A13 processor as the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, we can expect that to also prove popular. Especially if it can manage the $400 price point that some have claimed.
