The iPhone 11 sells like Popeyes chicken sandwich, and that may be bad news for Apple

The iPhone 11 sells like Popeyes chicken sandwich, and that may be bad news for Apple
Ever since Apple let it out at $699, the thicc iPhone 11 indicated that it will be selling like gangbusters and subsequent reports confirmed that Apple may have underestimated the demand for it.

Initial reports that it is selling on par with the early adopter excitement around the Pro models started surfacing as far back as its launch month and were particularly valid for the US market. Then the global sales estimates started pouring in, and it turned out that the humble 11 is hitting it off with Apple fans like no other iPhone in the lineup, amounting to the whopping 40% of new iOS handset sales even.

Apple was reportedly forced to increase the iPhone 11 component orders with its suppliers, and the latest hint that this trend is likely continuing now comes in the form of new A13 chip orders. According to Bloomberg, Apple's turning fortunes in China meant that its new iPhone 11 and to a certain extent its Pro sibling, are spearheading a massive increase in market share behind the Great Wall.

Thus, Apple has asked its chip foundry honchos from TSMC to keep up with the demand, and churn out more A13 processors than they had forecast for the quarter. Apple reports at the end of the month, and we should know more about its revenue from Greater China then.

If the average selling price (ASP) of its handsets takes a hit, there will be no doubt which iPhone of the 11 trio has been the most popular lately. Will Apple make up for it in increased volume to keep its revenue numbers intact? 

We'll see, but Apple is pretty dependent on its high-priced iPhone selling in decent volumes if it is to maintain its crazy ASP numbers, as you can see from analyst Horace Dediu's chart here, so that strong iPhone 11 demand may not be the good news that it sounds like at first blush.

I think, that's good news for Apple, anyway.

No. They wish 11 Pro max was the best seller instead.

If they did they wouldn't order more iPhone 11's and would never release iPhone 9/ se2!

Doesn’t matter because apple wants to lock up their costumers into apple ecosystem.

So long they are selling and gaining users, it is good for them, no matter what this analyst says. Apple is software company at the first place, and as we all k ow they are trying to make more money from Services. For that, they need to have big user base....so when iPhone 9 (or whatever it will be called) comes out, with even cheaper price, Apple 2ill be happy.

Apple is a hardware company, the reason they ventured into services because they predicted slowdowns in hardware sales.

Every-time I hear XR or 11 sells like hotcakes I ask the same question. No, not the case. Apparently a lot of the spent all cash on replacing the cracked screen :)

Exactly! This is part of their strategy to build up the user base for their software services. Let’s sum this up: - Apple built the iPhone brand to a point where it is aspirational - They built a strong ecosystem around the iPhone - They then raised prices - Then global phone sales began falling, Apple then found a new area for growth: services and wearables - Now they are bringing high end chip and performance to the sub $700 market and building up their user base, this will lead to more Services and Wearables being bought. Much like how companies like BMW and Mercedes began making models like the 1 series and A Class, the models like the iPhone 11 and XR are entry points and as the user grows with the brand they will want something better, they’ll move from that to a Pro model and probably buy an iPad as well etc... Devices like the iPhone 11 and XR are the bait and the ecosystem is the hook.

Smart business decisions, but scary that a company can have such a strong hold on someone's purchases for the rest of their life. And that goes for any company. Some of the fears of smaller companies appear to be real. Without change, we will maybe have all of our purchases act like politics with a 2 "party" system. And if Apple keeps it's proprietary-first strategy, we will never have good integration between the "parties" which will hurt the consumers even more.

You are still able to buy a iPhone and make Googles or MS bank account bigger by only using their services.

I remember when the cheaper iPhone wasn't the top seller, times sure change.

Apple has changed its strategy from being a hardware company to a service company. Apple sell the cheaper iPhones in order to make its service more reachable. The 11 pro and 11 pro Max are just for people who want to buy the best Apple can over.

Lots of carrier deals that's why the 11 is selling.

If only there were deals on android phones too to counteract this move for Apple. Too bad this never happens. iPhones are the only ones getting these deals - and never android phones.

What it means is that the average Apple consumer doesn't prioritize the extra hardware specs, and imo that's a win in a sales POV anyway. The lower cost keeps these things flying off the shelf.
