It hasn’t been that long since the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were released to the masses, and even though the phone has yet to make its way into every single market of Apple’s, it seems that the device is still selling extremely well. This was echoed by Apple’s CEO Tim Cook during the company’s recent earnings call.
According to Cook, it looks like the demand for the new iPhones is so great that it is “far outstripping” its supply. This is despite Apple ramping up their efforts to produce more iPhone 6 Plus units to help meet the demand. As it stands, the iPhone 6 appears to be outselling the iPhone 6 Plus, although this is probably due to the fact that the iPhone 6 Plus has sold out and is supply constrained at the moment.
In fact we had recently heard the rumors that Apple would be putting their plans for a 12.9-inch iPad on hold while they focused on producing more iPhone 6 Plus units. The larger tablet was rumored for a launch later this year, but the Cupertino company decided that perhaps meeting the demand for their iPhone 6 Plus handsets was more pertinent.
Unfortunately if you were hoping that things would ease up towards the end of the year, you might be disappointed to learn that it will not. Cook stated that Apple was not close to having a balance between the demand and supply of the new iPhones at the end of Q4 2014, which we guess is bad news for customers, but a good position for Apple to be in.
