Apple to ship 45 million iPhone units in Q1/2019, Say Experts

Apple iPhone is a great smartphone you can buy right now. However, it seems that things don’t go according to plan as Apple is seeing weak iPhone sales out there. Specifically, the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR failed to satisfy Apple in terms of sales performance despite their amazing start. In reality, the iPhone XR received millions of registrations ahead of the public release. However, the demand for the device is now low in emerging markets. The reason behind this lies in its higher price tag and users have multiple options out there. Besides, Chinese smartphone brands like Huawei or Xiaomi are selling affordable photos with crazy specs.

According to tech experts, Apple will ship around 45 million iPhone units in the first quarter of 2019. That is lower than our expectations, but it seems plausible seeing that the global smartphone sales are slowing down. Tech watchers say that the iPhone XS Max shipments will see a fall in the first quarter of the year as Apple is dealing with supply issues. For some background, the iPhone XS Max is the biggest iPhone ever released to the market. Indeed, the device sports a 6.5-inch OLED display, thus offering an immersive experience. Apple is expecting to ship around 20 million iPhone XS Max units in the first quarter of the year. However, the device has not seen a steady growth in sales since release due to its staggering $1500 price tag.

2019 is here and we are expecting to see the unveiling of new Apple devices. We have heard a lot of speculation that the 2019 iPhone lineup will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner at launch. In reality, smartphones with under-display scanners are not new out there as we have already seen many of them. Besides, the upcoming iPhones will come with a new design and improved Face ID. Apple is also expected to announce a new MacBook Pro in March. The new MacBook is rumored to feature a brand new design and new hardware. This adds up to what we have heard in previous rumors that Apple has been working on a new design for its laptop.
