Just last week I read that iPhone is bad for humanity. Then I read that iPhone tops Android phones 4-to-1 among teens. Then I read that iPhone X is the top selling smartphone and iPhone itself takes 8 of the Top 10. And most of the industry’s profits. Apple CEO Tim Cook says iPhone X is Apple’s top selling iPhone.
So, why is it time to say goodbye to iPhone X? I don’t know. But some analyst somewhere says iPhone X will be killed off this year.
One of the biggest concerns for Neil Campling, the co-head of the global thematic group focusing on technology at Mirabaud Securities, is the oversupply of chips.
Hmm. Someone who counts chips found more chips than expected so, ipso facto and alakazam– iPhone X will be killed off. Seriously. That’s the logic. Apple gets their CPUs from Taiwan Semiconductor (TSMC) and Campling counted them and determined Apple will kill iPhone X.
With the declines in iPhone X orders and the inventory issue at TSMC at record highs, which basically reflect a need to burn off inventory. Why? Because the iPhone X is dead
Remember, this is the same iPhone that sells more than any other single smartphone in the iPhone line. iPhone X gets 35-percent of the smartphone industry’s profits. iPhone X, according to Apple, is the #1 iPhone.
The simple problem with X is that it is too expensive… Consumers are turning their backs on high-priced smartphones.
Then why does Apple sell so many iPhones?
Apple may change the name of the next flagship iPhone model due in late summer or early fall, so maybe that’s how iPhone X will be killed. Personally, I like the iPhone X name but it should be pronounced iPhone X (ex) instead of 10. That way, iPhone X would represent the top of the line iPhone every year. As it is now, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus could become iPhone 9 and 9 Plus, but what happens in 2019? iPhone 10 and iPhone X (pronounced as ’10’)?
I don’t have the time but I would pay a little money each month for someone to track all these market analyst charlatans and their predictions to see how they match up with reality.
