IPhone 2018 - iPhone 9 to iPhone 11 What We Know So Far

Research firms and analysts were all clamoring that the iPhone X was an expensive failure by new research from Strategy Analytics has shown many different results.

Contrary to analyst predictions, Apple's big bet on its iPhone X smartphone has paid off.

The research has corroborated Cook's claim that iPhone X was the most popular iPhone model in March as well as the December quarter.

Contrary to the controversy surrounding the high price of Apple's iPhone X, it turns out it was the best-selling smartphone model of last quarter, worldwide, on a unit-sales basis.

While Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi Redmi 5A and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus were the world's top-selling Android smartphone models. So while the iPhone X helps boost iPhone ASP, so do the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

RBC analyst Amit Daryanani believes it will take Apple four to five years to deplete its cash reserves, assuming the company doesn't make a huge acquisition.

"Given our confidence in Apple's future, we are very happy to announce that our board has approved a new $100bn share repurchase authorisation and a 16% increase in our quarterly dividend".

Worldwide sales accounted for 65 per cent of the quarter's revenue as smartphone craze continued to grip emerging economies. Next, when reports of sales expectations not being met began to emerge, many - especially YouTube personalities - framed the iPhone X as a disaster of epic proportions for Apple.

The iPhone 7 is still quite popular with 5.6 million units shipped, and it is now in fourth place.

In defence of Android, our arguably best smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S9 only started selling towards the end of the quarter in question and thus shipping over 5.3 million units is a promise of better days to come.

Apple managed to implement more than 12 million gadgets iPhone 8, just over eight million iPhone 8 Plus, as well as 5.6 million smartphones model iPhone 7.

"The S9 Plus delivers an attractive, bezel-less, curved-screen design, a rich portfolio of software apps, and best-in-class retail distribution across dozens of countries". Here in Q1 2018, no one smartphone has that great a command over the market.

The phone managed to beat analysts' fears regarding its market performance due to its high price. There has been recurring speculation that Apple might try to buy Netflix, a deal that would probably cost at least $150 billion and would break the mold for a company that has shunned major acquisitions through its history.
