"Apple volumes grew through the quarter and were especially helped by iPhone SE volumes".
'Every few years Apple comes out with a new low-cost iPhone, with up-to-date features, to sweep up the customers using the oldest iPhones, ' said Mike Levin, CIRP partner and cofounder.
San Francisco, July 21 (SocialNews.XYZ) Apple is reportedly planning to bring touch-integrated OLED (organic light emitting diode) displays on all iPhone models that will be launched next year.
Apple no longer reveals the exact breakdown of sales when it comes to its individual iPhone models. While the more traditional iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models arrived alongside the iPhone X that first year, by 2018 Apple had abandoned that form factor in favour of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. That's very different to Q2 2019 when the cheaper iPhone XR made up 65% of US iPhone sales. There was no doubt that the iPhone 11 still does a way better job of capturing more sophisticated photographs, with an extra ultra-wide lens and features like Night Mode, Deep Fusion, and a more advanced portrait mode.
How the iPhone sales in the USA broke down in the last quarter.
Two thirds of iPhone SE buyers surveyed by CIRP (73 percent) indicated that they were switching from a three-year-old, or older, iPhone. Within that lineup, iPhone SE accounted for a decent share at 19%, even though it was available for only a portion of the quarter.
Counterpoint's controls additionally point out that iPhone SE sales are not going to cannibalize the fall iPhone 12 vary, as "iPhone SE buyers are more pragmatic about price, less concerned about 5G, and the smaller screen an obstacle is not considered as such". Prior to the release of the iPhone SE, for instance, the iPhone 8 could have been purchased for approximately the same price, and many carriers were offering both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone XR free on contract. Plus we have a comparison of the iPhone SE and the iPhone 6 here.
The software additionally seems to be attracting Android switches, as Counterpoint estimates that 26% of iPhone SE customers have switched from an Android software.
