Experts Says iPhone X May Be Hurting iPhone 8 Sales
When Apple announced that they will be releasing their special edition iPhone X, which is considered to be the biggest smartphone company launch of the decade, people from all over the world went absolutely crazy about it. It is also known to be the most prestigious iPhone yet because it commemorates iPhone’s 10th year anniversary. Apple CEO, Tim Cook, announced this special edition iPhone at an event in the Steve Jobs Theatre last September. He also considers this as the biggest step iPhone will take because it represents the future of smartphones. “It’s truly amazing how much the iPhone impacts the world every day.”
IPHONE X VS IPHONE 8 AND 8 PLUS
When Apple announced that alongside the special edition iPhone X, an iPhone 8 and 8 plus will also be released. In fact, you may now get the 8 and 8 plus. The iPhone X on the other hand will not be available till November.
People who want to upgrade are now having a major dilemma over which iPhone to get. They are absolutely torn whether they are going to get the 8 or 8 plus or to wait for iPhone X. A lot of people opted to wait for the special edition iPhone, and it seem to be making the 8 and 8 Plus suffer when it comes to their sales. iPhone 8 and 8 Plus starts at $699 whereas iPhone X starts at $999.
IPHONE 8 SALES SUFFER
Despite being cheaper compared to the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus still have its own all new features just like the special edition iPhone X. The 8 and 8 Plus come with glass bodies as well as the wireless charging feature which is basically what almost everyone wants.
Just like what experts predicted when Apple announced that iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will be released before the iPhone X, a large number of people from all over the world are waiting on iPhone X rather than getting the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Apple may have actually done this on purpose so that people could really choose between the them instead of just releasing all of them at the same time, which might lead to people snubbing the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus even if it is actually cheaper.
As a customer, you would of course would only want the best experience with the best phone for yourself, you wouldn’t want to settle for less. So experts consider this as Apple CEO, Tim Cook’s risky gamble since Apple is already struggling with 8 sales as well as not having enough handsets available as well as their lower financial performance. The iPhone X will be released in November and it is expected that Apple’s supply may not be enough especially during the holiday season, which can either be good or bad for them.
There have been reports from different countries of iPhones 8 and 8 Plus being returned because of some major issues.
IPHONE 8 PLUS RUMOR ISSUES
Looks like iPhone 8 and 8 plus are not just struggling with their sales but also their quality. There have been a couple of reports where the batteries of this new iPhone are bursting out of the smartphone.
News have spread earlier this week that there have been at least five separate reports of the all new iPhone 8 plus having shown deformity as well as swelled batteries and also the screens being detached from the phone itself. The said defective iPhone reports came from Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Canada, and Greece. They all display similar symptoms which makes the notion that there was indeed a single bad batch of devices that was released. One of Apple’s spokesperson stated that the company is now looking into these issues and some of the said devices have already been collected from the mobile phone operator partners for further investigation.
Unfortunately, this is not the very first time that Apple has faced these kinds of issues with their newly released devices. Apple’s greatest competitor, Samsung, has also faced a similar issue with their newly released phones not too long ago.
Apple has managed to capture the world’s attention when they introduced the Touch ID feature back with the iPhone 5s. Now with the special edition iPhone X, people are getting more attracted with its all-new Face ID feature. Other smartphone companies are now looking into how they could top this biggest iPhone release.
