Forty million : Here is the number of iPhone 13 that would have been sold during the holiday season, according to a now quite reputable analyst from the firm Wedbush Securities. Founded in 1955, it advises many discerning investors both in the United States and abroad. The firm is also a member of the NYSE, and has a multi-million dollar portfolio according to its latest audit (EY).
According to Dan Ives, demand would thus be particularly satisfactory for Apple, despite some initial failures due to delivery delays. The researcher here corroborates other estimates published a little earlier. Indeed, according to JP Morgan – who is no slouch when it comes to betting on the right horse as well – stocks are once again in good shape, making it possible to avoid delays as best as possible.
Adjustments still awaited
Ives nevertheless specifies that twelve million mobiles are missing still at the Apple, but that the first half of 2022 could restore order. It is also on this occasion that the third generation iPhone SE is also expected. This will have a technical sheet less attractive on paper than its big brothers, but for a price almost twice as affordable.
Among the other reasons for this small revival for Apple, the representative of Wedbush also cites the China. An assertion that resonates with the latest figures from Counterpoint Research, according to which Cupertino occupies the first place of the podium in terms of market share. It must be said that it is also in the Middle Kingdom that the famous smartphones are manufactured, which automatically reduces the chances of not receiving your package on time.
Services at the top
Daniel Ives, however, believes that nearly a third of all iPhone users around the world haven’t changed their device in three and a half years, but of course it’s luck for the upcoming products. As to mixed reality headset from Apple, it would be for the expert announced this summer, which fits with the company’s usual schedule for WWDC.
Finally, and this is probably what will have to be remembered for the future tax results, Apple services would be worth today $ 1.5 trillion. In the list, we find News +, Music, TV +, iCloud, AppleCare +, repairs in Apple Store, Apple Arcade and now Fitness +.
