While it was the last iPhone 2018 to release the latest trio of Apple handsets, the Cupertino giant says its price (relatively) affordable iPhone XR is a resounding success, selling the most units of its phones since their launch.
In an interview with CNETGreg Joswiak, vice president of Apple, said that the iPhone XR was "the most popular iPhone in the company every day since the day of its availability."
Although not explicitly mentioned, it is likely that the commentary on the performance of the iPhone XR followed recent information that Apple has reduced production orders for its three flagship devices – the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.
Among the possible reasons for the success of the XR is its apparently low price ($ 749) compared to its extremely expensive siblings, which start at between $ 999 and $ 1,099, making it the most expensive handset of Apple nowadays.
It should also be noted that the XS and XS Max are not true successors of the iPhone X, but are instead seen as improvements on last year's flagship product, which could make XR sales impressive by comparison .
Given Apple's recent statement that no longer share information on the number of units soldThis Joswiak statement is the only official word we have on the sale of new iPhones.
Without real numbers, all we know is that the iPhone XR is coming out faster than the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, but we can not say how fast.
