There have been multiple reports to suggest that Apple’s iPhone 8 isn’t doing as well as its predecessors, and recently Canadian carrier Rogers seems to agree with that assessment. According to the carrier’s CEO Joe Natale, he claims that demand for the iPhone 8 has been “anemic”.
At this moment in time it is unclear as to how many iPhone 8 units Apple has sold and we’ll probably have to wait for the company’s financials to get an idea, but so far it certainly doesn’t sound too good. In fact recent reports have suggested that Apple could be looking to slash production of the iPhone 8 by as much as half.
Earlier reports are also claiming that the iPhone 7 is actually outselling the iPhone 8 in the US. That being said, this isn’t necessarily all doom and gloom for Apple. Some are saying that the reason could be that customers are waiting to see what the iPhone X can bring to the table and if it lives up to the hype before deciding if they’d rather get the iPhone 8 or iPhone X.
Others are claiming that customers are instead holding out for the iPhone X, which explains why many are passing on the iPhone 8. Despite what seems to be mostly negativity, there are some who have dismissed claims of weak iPhone 8 sales, but either way like we said, we’ll have to wait for Apple’s financials to get a better idea.
