Reputed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that the consumer interest in new iPhones is higher than anticipated. He notes that consumers are showing a greater interest in the new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro colors.
The Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro is attracting the most consumers, with many iPhone 11 customers preferring the new green and purple colors over the other four. In the United States, the iPhone 11 Pro has a higher demand than the iPhone 11 while in China, its the opposite. The slightly lower price tag and the inclusion of an ultra-wide angle camera on the latter are likely playing a role in this.
The reputed analyst does note that due to production issues, the supply of the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro is currently limited.
The strong initial demand for the new iPhones has led Kuo to raise his iPhone shipping estimate for 2019 to 70-75 million units, up from his original estimate of 65-70 million units. The strong demand has been boosted by various trade-in programs and 0% interest payment plans from retailers, Apple, and carriers.
The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 went up for pre-order late last week. The availability of the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro slipped by a couple of weeks in the United States after around 30 minutes of the pre-order going live.
The iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro are both powered by Apple’s new A13 Bionic chip. They feature improved 4K video recording, a Night mode in the camera app, improved 12MP FaceTime camera, longer battery life, and more. The iPhone 11 Pro series also comes with an improved Super Retina XDR display, an 18W USB-C fast charger, and more.
