IPhone sales in the second quarter will exceed 50 million units, predicts UBS Evidence Lab. Analysts agree that consumer interest in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus won’t weaken in the second quarter of the year.
According to UBS Evidence Lab, in the II quarter of 2015 Apple implements 51,1 million smartphones. And these forecasts significantly outperform pessimistic expectations of professionals by the Wall Street Journal, confident that Cupertino put “only” 45 million iPhones.
Analysts believe that the most important role in the high sales of iOS devices will play 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 will not be the only “power pole” of the Apple. Communicators of the company 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 and will make the Apple Watch. 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.
A few weeks ago, analyst at KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo issued a forecast that iPhone sales in the second quarter will amount to 51.4 million
