Despite the fact that the iPhone 7 was released in September last year, before the publication of the recent quarterly report, Apple to understand how it was popular, it was difficult. In the previous quarterly report to determine this is impossible, since at that time the smartphone was in the sale for only two weeks.
That is why many analysts are primarily interested in the iPhone 7. And, as it turned out, Apple surprised even optimistic experts, announcing record smartphone sales of 78 million units. For kupertinovtsy has become a tradition to set new records after the regular predictions of collapse of the company.
Judging by the popularity of the iPhone 7, few buyers experienced due to the failure of the standard audio Jack. Although at first many thought that Apple is acting very arrogant and did not take into account the opinion of users. Others argued that the Corporation is making a big mistake that will eventually lead to a drop in iPhone sales.
Then there were jokes, lots of jokes. Some gleefully saying that Apple could not come up with anything new, so “beginning to innovate in the opposite direction”, appearing from the useful features.
In fact, the iPhone 7 was just excellent. Supplying bundled adapter with a Lightning to 3.5 mm, Apple offered a compromise for those who for whatever reason do not want to use the bundled headset. Most didn’t even notice the lack of audio connectors, or they simply still.
In other words, the rejection of a 3.5 mm port iPhone does not affect the users choice, all was more interested in water resistance and dual camera the iPhone 7 Plus.
Pretty funny, but this was observed with AirPods. Wireless headphones immediately after the presentation has been criticized for its impracticality: a device wirelessly is very easy to lose. The Network had a lot of jokes about it. But in the end, Apple CEO Tim cook called the sales results AirPods “a resounding success”.
Rather, the point here is that the reviewers and technical experts often do not look at the product through the eyes of a normal user. Yes, for a person who works every day with tens of gadgets, features the iPhone 7 might seem limited due to the lack of a familiar interface. However, the average owner of the iPhone 6 are more interested in top performance and high quality camera new.
Buyers voted with their wallets and fully refuted the erroneous opinion about the Apple’s decision of refusal from the 3.5 mm port. Of course, the company is no stranger to criticism, but the problem with the lack of legacy connectors in the iPhone 7 was clearly far-fetched.
