Just like any previous iPhone, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are selling like hot cake, and it is no exception this quarter. Now, we knew that Apple just recently took over Google as being the most valuable brand in 2015, and with this recent number, it does not seem like things will change anytime soon.
Morgan Stanley provided some stats with the folks at Apple Insider, showing that Apple is on its way to shifting 53 million units of iPhone in the second quarter of this year. This was the result of increased interest in Asia, specifically in China, proven that the focus Apple has been putting in this country is now paying off. It is certainly safe to conclude that the iPhones are still in heavy demand, and will still be the most profitable products that the company will ever had.
The Apple Watch however, is a different story, but it is in no way a bad one. Six weeks after the launch, the demand for the wearable is still 20% higher than the original iPhone, and the rate seems to be staying that way for awhile. While the demand was 50% greater than the first iPhone, the market rate has steadily slowed down. A lot of it was caused by “supply constraints due to some component issues.”
As for a prediction of what will happen, Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty claims that the next iteration will witness a similar shipment from year-to-year in comparison to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. However, the interest on this year versions of the iPhone will increase in the same period, as contract prices start to fall into the $99 range.
