When the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were launched, initial reports suggested that sales of the handsets weren’t that great. This was because it was suspected that many customers were holding out for the iPhone X and waiting to see if the iPhone X would be worth the premium price tag.
However so far reports of the iPhone X’s sales haven’t exactly been that positive, and while it isn’t a flop, it doesn’t seem to be the resounding success many had thought it would be. However over in China and Japan, iPhone X sales tell a very different story, at least that’s according to a report from research firm Kantar Worldpanel.
According to their report, it seems that the iPhone X sales in both China and Japan are said to be “stellar”. Exactly what this means is unclear since no specific figures were given, but presumably it must be well enough for it to be considered “stellar”. The report goes on to add that sales in the UK are also pretty good, with the iPhone X being the best-selling phone in the country with a market share of 14.4%.
Apple is expected to announce their financial results come February, and hopefully we’ll have a better idea of how the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus fared then.
