Apple’s iPhone sales have been slipping and it is no secret, and naturally fans and investors are a bit worried about the company’s future. However it seems that Apple’s CEO Tim Cook is particularly optimistic because in a press release celebrating the iPhone’s 10th anniversary, Cook was quoted as saying that the “best is yet to come” for the iPhone.
His statement reads, “iPhone is an essential part of our customers’ lives, and today more than ever it is redefining the way we communicate, entertain, work and live. iPhone set the standard for mobile computing in its first decade and we are just getting started. The best is yet to come.” It is possible that Cook is just projecting optimism and setting up a bit of hype given that he is the face of the company, but he isn’t alone in that regard.
Recently analysts have suggested that 2017’s iPhone 8 as it is expected to be known, will be blowing the sales figures out of the water and we could be seeing sales that rival that of the iPhone 6, which many regarded to be as a “supercycle” for the iPhone thanks to the introduction of its larger displays.
