KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo) about the ability of iPhone 6s to beat the sales record of its predecessors in the main IV quarter of 2015.
The company expressed the view that the new smartphone is advanced technology of 3D Touch will be enough to whet the interest of users to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. But the absence of new partners among cellular operators and declining demand in China in the first place, reflect on the novelties of the Californian giant.
Analysts believe that a more powerful processor Apple A9, camera with a resolution of 12 megapixels, support for fast LTE Cat 6 and the new display that support 3D Touch will hardly cause most users to upgrade to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
In the final quarter of last year, Apple sold 74,5 million iPhones. And, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, in the final quarter of 2015, the American company will deliver from 70 to 75 million smartphones.
iPhone 6s were more successful than predecessors at the start of sales. In Apple claim that for the first weekend, the company was able to get rid of 13 million iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. In KGI Securities believe that due to the popularity of the new series of Apple smartphones have been able to increase sales to 48.5 million iPhone gadgets in the third quarter of 2015, which is 23.6% higher than the previous quarter. The share of iPhone 6s themselves had from 20 to 22 million shipments, while a year earlier Apple sold 14-15 million iPhone 6.
However, Ming-Chi Kuo sure that this growth is due not so much to increase the popularity of Apple smartphones, as something this year, China was among the first wave of sales of iPhone 6s, and that was the main reason for this quick start smartphones.
