2. Most American consumers (over 60% of respondents) who have already bought or are interested in purchasing an iPhone X, consider the Face ID interface a better solution than the Touch scanner. ID. Strongly against the new method of unlocking the device were 16% of respondents. About 15% said they were not ready to judge the prospects for Face ID after just 10 days from the date of purchase.
img 3. Apple’s recent decision to cut iPhone 8 production in favor of the iPhone X seems to be began to bear fruit. Less than two weeks after the start of sales of the “dozens”, the Russian division of Apple changed the terms of its delivery subject to an order in the company’s online store. Now, the coveted flagship promise to deliver 2-3
img 4 in just 2-3 weeks. In the third quarter of 2017, Apple shipped 3.9 million smart watches, which is 1.1 million more than the equivalent period last year. This allowed the company to return to the first place in the ranking of the leading suppliers of wearable devices, although the gap from the second place holder is not so great.
Currently Apple’s share in this segment is 23 percent, which insignificantly separates the leader from The Chinese company Xiaomi, whose cheap fitness bracelets are very popular around the world. By the way, in the past quarter, the Chinese manufacturer for the first time in history for some time ranked first in the ranking and may well regain it again.
Analysts say that shipments of the new Apple Watch Series 3 LTE amounted to only 800,000 units due to limited production and the inability to use this model of watches in some countries. This may adversely affect the share of Apple Watch in the short term.
img 5. The profit of one of Apple’s largest suppliers, Foxconn, fell by almost 40% in the third quarter of 2017. This was reported by The Verge with reference to the financial report of the Chinese giant.
The main reason for the fall in profits was the problem with the production of the iPhone X. At the time when Foxconn has all the necessary capacities to produce smartphones in the right quantity, suppliers components can not provide the company with the necessary details. These mainly include OLED-display and Face ID face recognition components.
Because of the complexity of the production of the iPhone X, Foxconn’s operating expenses also increased, so you can say that in the third quarter the smartphone delivered more to the assembler problems than good.
It is reported that in this quarter, Foxconn will be able to compensate for its losses, since the production of the iPhone X has improved – this is evidenced by the shortened delivery times of the device worldwide.
6. Next year, Apple will launch three iPhone models with identical appearance, Ming-Chi Kuo, Leading Analyst, KGI Securities. At the same time, two of them, as previously assumed, will receive identical hardware stuffing and organic displays, while the third will be much less breakthrough, but also a more affordable version of the iPhone X.
Two new iPhones with OLED displays will be aimed at the premium market, while the third – with a TFT-LCD display and less productive “hardware” – is designed for the middle segment.
Most likely, the “younger” iPhone X will get a 6.1-inch display with resolution from 320 to 330 dpi. The “older” version will keep the flagship PPI, which will be approximately equal to 480-500 pixels. The analyst did not provide any details about the hardware specifications of future devices.
The expected price of the “younger” iPhone X, according to Kuo, will be about 649-749. It is possible that he will be the successor to last year’s iPhone SE. The appearance in the iPhone model line of a new relatively affordable model with the appearance and makings of a flagship will invariably lead Apple to refuse to release traditional models with the Home button.
