Apple Watch with LTE is dominating presales; wait for iPhone X lowers interest in 8, says analyst

Our old friend, the KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo published today its first predictions and considerations about sales of Ma's new products. And this time, contrary to common sense, it seems that those who emerge as the champions of popularity are the gadgets more expensive.

Take for example the Apple Watch Series 3: According to Kuo's estimate, the most expensive model of the new watch, equipped with cellular connectivity, is accounting for about 80% of the presale of the accessory apparently, the most expensive $ 70 for the (polymer) model. Digital Crown red are not scaring consumers.

It is good to note, however, that this 80% may give an unreliable impression of the situation: as is well known, Apple is making available the most expensive models of the Watch, such as those made with stainless steel and the ceramic Edition Edition, only in the LTE version. That is, if you want a more refined watch or sapphire screen, you will necessarily have to invest in a model with cellular connectivity.

Anyway, overall, the numbers show that Apple has done its homework with its wearable. Kuo said, moreover, that the latest Apple Watch update is selling better than expected and giving the accessory healthy growth in the market, perhaps even taking the top spot in the segment in which it disputes.

Switching to slightly larger screens, according to Kuo, the iPhone 8 It goes great too, thanks but not as well as it could. And guess what, thanks to your own brother.

Obviously, the presale period of the iPhone X It has not started yet and therefore there is no way to risk any guess about the performance of the device in the market. However, you can see the market interest in the pre-sale iPhones 8/8 Plus to see something we all expected: the glorious thousand-dollar smartphone is taking part of the public interest in its relatively younger siblings. modest.

Just look at the delivery estimates for the iPhones 8/8 Plus at Apple's US store: several configurations are still scheduled for release day (this Friday, the 22nd). In basically every release of iPhones to date, after the first two days of pre-sale, almost all (or all) models had their expected delivery times changed to at least 1-2 weeks.

That's why Kuo says investors will certainly be conservative when putting their chips on iPhones 8/8 Plus. If the iPhone X will, in the long run, cannibalize the sales of the cheaper models, however, that's just the time.
