Apple iPhone is undoubtedly the most desired phone on the market thanks to its compelling features and stunning design. Apple is doing pretty well in the smartphone business. In the first quarter of the year, the Cupertino Company posted a record $78.4 billion revenue, exceeding tech experts’ expectations, mainly because of strong sales of the iPhone 7.
According to the latest sources, Apple will retain its leading position in the smartphone market in the second quarter of the year. The Cupertino Company is expected to ship more than 40 million iPhone models during the next three months of the year in order to meet huge demand from customers.
Tech analysts say that the launch of the premium iPhone 8 will make a significant impact on Apple’s sales performance this year thanks to its compelling features and a brand new design. According to the latest data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus remain the bestselling phones in the US, beating Samsung’s recently-introduced Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
Specifically, Apple reported a 5.8% increase in the three-month period that ended in April of 2017 to capture 36.5% markets share in the US, while Android’s market share in the US fell 5.9% in the same period. Android’s hit phones like Galaxy S8/S8 Plus, LG G6 and HTC 10 failed to make a significant boost in smartphone sales.
Apple is expected to launch the next generation iPhone at this year’s annual September event. Most rumors say that Apple will launch up to three iPhone models including a premium iPhone 8, an iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. The high-end iPhone 8 will come with key components like long-range wireless charging, a revolutionary 3D camera, much-improved Touch ID and much more.
Rumors say that Apple is having to deal with manufacturing issues that may force the company to push back the launch date of the upcoming iPhone 8 to October or November this year.
