Demand for the new iPhone 11 handsets has been higher than expected, apple has already increased production of the new devices.
Now it looks like iPhone sales in 2020 will be boosted by the demand for thew new iPhone 11, it will also be boosted by the new iPhone SE 2 which is expected to launch early next year.
The news comes from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, you can see what he had to say about demand for Apple’s latest smartphones below.
We expect that combined iPhone shipments in 1Q20 will grow around 10% YoY thanks to the iPhone 11’s replacement demand boosted by more affordable prices and iPhone SE2’s shipments starting in 1Q20. We estimate that iPhone shipment in 1Q20 will be 45–50mn units (iPhone 11 Pro series and iPhone 11 to be 13–15 and 22–24mn units, respectively), which is better than around 42mn units of iPhone shipments in 1Q19 (iPhone XS series and iPhone XR to be around 12 and 14mn units, respectively).
Apple is expected to launch this new cheaper iPhone SE 2 some time in early 2020, we suspect in the first quarter, the handset is expected to have a similar design to Apple’s iPhone 8. It will be interesting to see what the device is like and what specifications it comes with.
