The iPhone 12 is a real craze. According to analysts at Wedbush, Apple’s new smartphones are even more popular than expected and they could exceed record sales of iPhone 6s.
A record. This is simply what an analyst is announcing for Apple in 2021. According to the investment bank Wedbush, the current trajectory of requests for the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max even exceeds its forecasts. the most optimistic previous ones.
The site AppleInsider was able to read the note to investors and it indicates that the Cupertino company has not experienced such a situation since the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launched in 2014. ” In recent days, our teams have been performing iPhone supply chain audits in Asia which were on a rather uptrend due to strong demand for iPhone 12 5G», Explains analyst Daniel Ives. “They have now passed our ‘bullish scenario’ for units to be shipped in 2021, given the current trajectory. ».
Between 240 and 250 million units sold
For the last quarter of 2020, and based on its recent checks, Wedbush even estimates up to 95 million the number of devices in the iPhone 12 range that will be assembled. That’s 35% more than Wedbush and Wall Street’s initial forecast, notesAppleInsider.
The figures therefore seem to be startling. Daniel Ives now predicts “more than 240 million units»Shipped by Apple in 2021, with a possible peak around 250 million. “A breathtaking figure”Is expected and it would then forget the record of 231 million units sold in 2015 by the iPhone 6. A figure that corroborates the forecasts of another analyst, Neil Cybart (Above Avalon), who counted on 240 million iPhones sold for 2021. Anyway, the record seems in sight for the iPhone 12.
With its new more square design, its 5G compatibility (finally available in France), its extended range with all OLED screens ranging from 5.4 to 6.7 inches, and its improvements in photos, Apple seems to have found the recipe for success. . At least at the demand level, with production which is further delayed by the pandemic.
