Analysts don’t see the iPhone 6s as hot enough for growth in Q4
Apple has had an amazing track record with its sales of the iPhone 6. The company has broken every single sales record it held in the past in just a few weeks of sales, and it even took over the Chinese market for a brief stint. Reports claim that Apple is preparing for significant growth the iPhone 6s, but analysts predict otherwise.
KGI has gained a significant amount of fame for the accuracy of its Apple predictions. Today the company claims that the iPhone 6s might not be the success that Apple is predicting for two major reasons, out of which only one is in Apple’s control. On one hand KGI claims that the weakened Chinese economy will not help Apple’s growth in any way, and on the other, analysts predict that the rumored features to come with the iPhone 6s are not hot enough to wow customers.
Apple’s sales record for Q4/2014 was 74.5 million units, and KGI predicts that Apple will either match that figure at 75 million units, or even undersell at 65 million units. Whether that happens or not is still a matter of time, but the possible announcement of the iPhone 6s on September 9 should tell us more.
