iPhone 7 No Longer In Demand In 2017 Due To Upcoming iPhone 8? 2017 Anniv Phone Just Like iPhone 6? [RUMORS]
iPhone 7 has reportedly decreased in demand amidst news that the handset's successor is coming soon. The market for the iPhone 7 has allegedly declined in the Chinese and Taiwanese market, among others. It is expected that the upcoming 2017 anniversary Phone will not be another iPhone 6 reinvention.
Apple reportedly reduced supplier orders for the iPhone 7 due to an initial sales influx in the first month since the iPhone 7 was launched. It should be noted that the iPhone 7 was only released in the market this year at the Apple Event held last September. On the contrary, a number of supply chain sources have reportedly noted a strong demand for the iPhone 7 in Jet Black following the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco.
Latest reports however have been focusing more on the iPhone 8, that has reportedly lost much of the market for the iPhone 7 in China and other markets worldwide. It has been noted that the company has been slowly manufacturing the iPhone 7 towards the end of the year in preparation for its upcoming flagship. Moreover, much anticipation has been noted for the company's tenth anniversary iPhone in 2017, Macrumors reported.
Rumor has it that the company has not been affected by the sales performance of the iPhone 7. It is said that Apple has also shifted its attention on the next generation iPhone instead. Moreover, the total shipments for the iPhone 7 is believed to be five million less than in the last few months of 2016.
In other news, it is said that the Cupertino-based company's growth has not been as sustainable as expected. Apparently, the iPhone 7 was the company's chance to stabilize. However, latest reports have reportedly revealed that the iPhone 7 has not been able to revitalize the market for the Apple products, BGR reported.
iPhone 7 in Taiwan has reportedly reduced orders from the giant tech company. It is expected that the iPhone 8 will deliver the expected results with its OLED display, glass cases, enhanced CPUs, dual-lens cameras and advanced sensors. Moreover, the next-generation iPhone is slated to support Mixed Reality and Wireless Charging Technologies.
