As indicated in a new report released by Canalys, Apple has managed to register sales growth in the Chinese mobile market in Q3 2017, after posting six consecutive quarters of sales decreases, and the recent release of the iPhone 8 devices have contributed significantly to that growth. According to the analyst firm, Apple reported a 40 percent yearly growth from July to September of this year, with shipments of 11 million units.
Sensor Tower has recently released its latest projections with regards to app usage in America. According to its forecast, owners of iPhone devices who are based in the United States will be spending an average of $88 every year on paid mobile apps three years from now. Based on new data that it had collected, the company found that the money users spend on apps and in-app purchases is on the rise every year. For instance, iPhone users have paid an average of $63 in 2017, which represents a 33 percent increased compared to last year’s spending. Sensor Tower predicts that a couple of years from now, the growth over 2016 will have increased to a whopping 86 percent.
Boy, that was fast. Apple started accepting preorders for its highly awaited iPhone X at 12:01 AM Pacific Time earlier today, and those who were among the first to preorder got a shipping date of November 3rd (the official launching date of the flagship device). But after just 10 minutes, the shipping dates of preordered units quickly began lengthening to two or even three weeks. By 12:30 AM, virtually all shipping dates have stretched to four or five weeks, depending on which specific model configuration and on which wireless service provider.
Xfinity Mobile, the wireless service of Comcast, has recently announced that it will start accepting preorders for Apple’s soon to launch iPhone X starting on October 27th through its official website and via its Xfinity Store locations. On November 3rd, the device will hit the carrier’s store shelves at 8 AM local time.
According to a report recently published by Stuff, Apple has apparently completed its acquisition of PowerbyProxi, a New Zealand based firm that specializes in developing wireless charging solutions. Details of the deal were not disclosed by the iPhone maker, and there was no mention of any sum, but the tech giant did confirm that it is planning to keep PowerbyProxi’s operations New Zealand.
As you might have heard already, the iPhone X (which can be argued is the more highly awaited new iPhone model compared to the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus) will be made available for preordering this coming Friday, October 27th. There is some talk that availability will be somewhat limited, and Apple is even encouraging prospective buyers to get there early when its flagship device hits store shelves everywhere on November 3rd.
According to a recent press release from Apple, its highly awaited flagship device, the iPhone X, will officially be made available in over 55 countries around the world and in Apple Store locations starting this Friday, November 3rd, at 8 AM local time. The tech giant also took the opportunity to offer some advice for walk in customers looking to purchase an iPhone X unit, encouraging them to get there as early as possible.
Yup, it appears that on November 3rd, there will only be a limited number of units made available for Apple’s highly awaited flagship device, the iPhone X, at least according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities. Kuo has projected that when the handset officially launches in about a couple of weeks, there will only be around 2 to 3 million units.
Although the iPhone X is slated for wide release on November 3rd, prospective buyers can already preorder the device on October 27th at a price of $999 (which makes this particular model the most pricey iPhone ever). Exactly a week later, the device will launch in more than 50 countries across the globe.
According to a report recently published by Economic Daily News, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus may be in danger of undergoing production cuts, possibly by half, in the next couple of months because of the iPhone X. If this turns out be true, then it would mark the soonest that Apple has ever cut production of a brand new iPhone model.
According to the results of an online study recently conducted by Gartner, worldwide smartphone sales in 2018 will see some growth for the first time since 2015. The last couple of years have seen industry growth stall a bit, but by next year, the volume of smartphone units shipped across the globe is expected to reach an estimated 1.9 billion units, which represents a 2 percent improvement as compared to this year’s.
