CIRP report says that only 61% of Apple smartphones sold in Q4 of 2017 are the latest models

Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (commonly known as CIRP) recently published the report generated by their analysis of iPhone sales in the fourth quarter of 2017. The bottomline of the analysis by CIRP says that iPhone 8 is the most popular phone that was sold around the world among the three new smartphone models, while only every one in 5 iPhone buyers went for the iPhone X. According to the report, from the start of October 2017 till the end of December 2017, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus duo accounted for a quarter of all sales within the timeframe. iPhone 6 duo, iPhone 6S duo, and iPhone SE also accounted for some sales in Q4 of 2017. What comes as a surprise is that iPhone SE accounted for a larger percentage of sales in 2017 than it did during the same time in 2016. CIRP concluded that the main factors due to the low sales of iPhone X are its late release date and a higher price point compared to any consumer standard in many smartphone markets. Another result that is produced by this analysis is that the consumer for Apple's smartphone were ready to welcome bigger screens variants than usual. The analysis shows that almost 50 percent of the iPhones sold in Q4 of 2017 had a screen size bigger than 4.7 inches. This is a plus point for Apple in terms of revenues as a larger screen spawns a higher price tag than its smaller-screen counterpart.
