IPhone sales in the second quarter will exceed 53 million units, predicts Morgan Stanley. Analysts agree that consumer interest in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is not weakened in the second quarter of the year.
Although not far off release the next generation iPhone, the interest in the current models of Apple’s smartphone is not reduced largely due to the launch of smart watches Apple Watch, says leading analyst Katy Huberty. The latter, according to her, was more popular than the original iPhone, released in 2007.
Huberty believes that in the second quarter of 2015, which ends in June, Apple will deliver a total of 53 million iPhones. Particularly high demand for communicators under Apple brand is observed in China. Analysts believe that the most important role in the high sales of iOS devices played a huge interest in the iPhone in the Chinese market, which has led to the fact that Apple was able to get ahead and Xiaomi to become the largest smartphone vendor in China.
But, of course, China was not the only “power pole” of the Apple. Smartphones from Cupertino are in great demand in major European countries. Observers note that many new owners of the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus used to be the users of Android smartphones.
The contribution to sales of the iPhone in the second quarter made the Apple Watch, notes Morgan Stanley. Today nobody doubts the popularity of the smart watch, which has repeatedly forced Apple to delay the start of deliveries. The Apple Watch is only compatible with the latest models of Apple’s smartphone, which is an additional incentive to purchase the iPhone.
As for Apple Watch, they, according to experts, ahead of sales volume by 20% the first generation iPhone.
