Appleâ€˜s sales have seen a recent dip, but it seems the company is optimistic that sales will stabilize soon. Apple suppliers are currently planning to produce parts for up to 75 million iPhones for the second half of the year. This is equal to last yearâ€™s amount, which means theyâ€™re probably expecting sales to stabilize soon enough.
Now, itâ€™s important to note that while they may be planning for 75 million units, that doesnâ€™t necessarily mean theyâ€™ll manage to sell that many. It does however mean that Apple expects to sell close to that amount. Whether their confidence is misplaced or not remains to be seen, though itâ€™s fully possible considering itâ€™s a brand new launch.
Apple has recently stopped publicly reporting unit sales of iPhones and other products in its quarterly earnings releases, making it more difficult for analysts and others to track those numbers over time and requiring them to calculate unit sales based on reported revenue numbers and estimated average prices.
If youâ€™ve been on the internet as of late, thereâ€™s a high chance youâ€™ve seen renders for the new iPhone. Now personally Iâ€™m not a big fan of the new design, but thereâ€™s no doubt in my mind that itâ€™ll still do well. The big question is, how well will it do in the currently more competitive market? Weâ€™ll have to wait and see.
