Bernstein survey shows 48% excited about iPhone X

Bernstein survey shows 48% excited about iPhone X

By pre-approving users for the upgrade, Apple is making it possible for these members to get approval before the iPhone X opens for pre-order.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus accounted for a collective 16% of total USA iPhone sales during the third quarter, researcher Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) said on Monday.

"Consumer loyalty to iPhone remains remarkably strong, despite persistent complaints about high prices and worries about declining innovation, with only 3 percent of respondents stating that their next phone would *not* be an iPhone", Bernstein said. "iPhone 8 and 8 Plus accounted for only 16% of total sales, compared to a 24% share for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus two years ago". Augustine Asset Management Inc. bought a new stake in Apple during the 1st quarter worth about $14,554,000.

The iPhone 8 has not generated the same demand its predecessor managed to and it comes as no surprise that Apple took some steps to increase its demand especially until the iPhone X is readily available.

Houston left tackle Duane Brown ends holdout
Although the contract was slated to pay him a total of $19.15 million over the next two seasons, none of the money was guaranteed. Houston Texans left tackle Duane Brown has ended his holdout and reported to NRG Stadium, a source confirmed to ESPN on Monday.

Apple skipped its usual S model release this year. While the devices were able to achieve that in just a couple of weeks on store shelves, their share of sales is far behind the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which accounted for 43% of sales when they went on sale in September 2017. Those devices, called the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5S, and iPhone 6S, typically don't initially sell as well as the big updates. According to Mashable, Apple made the silent move on the same day the company announced the iPhone 8 on 12 September. It comes with a major redesign, featuring a screen that almost entirely covers its face. According to a new report, next year's iPhone 9 models could bring some of the features of the pricey iPhone X at a lower price.

The survey included 1,112 iPhone owners located in the U.S., UK, and China.

iPhone 8 series handsets are significantly underperforming prior new iPhone launches, a new survey reveals.

With the release of the much anticipated iPhone X slated for November 3rd, it may seem a little insane to already be looking ahead to the next iPhone X or whatever they decide to call it.
