Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus smartphones are the company’s most popular handsets to date, Apple managed to sell a massive 10 million of the handsets in their first weekend.
In its last financial quarter, Apple managed to ship a record number of iPhones, with a total of 39.2 million handsets shipped, and now according to KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo, Apple is expected to reach 71.5 million units for quarter 4 of 2014.
We attribute the shortage of iPhone 6 Plus partly to less smooth production than iPhone 6. Moreover, while iPhone 6 Plus attracted greater attention when it was launched, we think more consumers will prefer iPhone 6 as they can operate the handset with one hand. Eventually, iPhone 6 shipments will outperform those of the iPhone 6 Plus model.
We recently heard that Apple had increased their iPhone orders from their suppliers, and this has improved the shipping times for both handsets on Apple’s website, as the company is able to meet demand for the handset because of the extra orders.
It looks like Apple could have another record quarter with the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets, and it will be interesting to see just how many devices the company sells.
