kgi re-estimates q1 iphone x shipments with a lower number


the iphone x has not been one of apple’s best-selling iphone models in recent years. in fact, apple is not selling as many shipments as analysts have predicted. while a number of 20-30 million units was estimated for q1, ming-chi kuo has given a new estimated number of 18 million unit shipments.kgi cited a couple of reasons that the iphone x didn’t do as well. analysts were counting on the chinese market to make up these numbers, but ‘a longer smartphone cycle for chinese phone users’ and the belief that the iphone x’s notched-display did not provide as much usable area as a 5.5-inch display were to blame for underwhelming sales. it would seem that both huawei and oppo are also seeing a reduction in forecasted units going back to chinese users keeping their phones around for longer times.1

the iphone x is now up for pre-order, and a lot of people seem to want to grab apple's first $999 smartphone - shipping estimates have already slipped to 5-6 weeks at the moment, in fact.an interesting detail has been revealed by apple today regarding the iphone x, and it has to do with repair prices. the company published its flat-fee pricing for units that aren't covered by applecare+, and it turns out that if you know you're clumsy you probably shouldn't skip that.a screen-only repair of the iphone x will set you back $279, while for other damage you will pay $549. for comparison, those numbers are $169 and $399 for the iphone 8 plus (which starts at $799), and $149 and $349 for the iphone 8 (which starts at $699). so the repair pricing is pretty much in line with each handset's pricing
