Reports from analysts along with rumors have started to gain pace in recent times with regards to Apple – as the company is looking set to release its up and coming flagship smartphone series. The latest speculation says that the company is now actually looking and gearing up to ready 75 million to 80 million iPhones ahead of the eventual iPhone 11 launch which is to take place next month.
Many have been skeptical over the success that this year’s iPhones are to have. Of course, it wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the trade war that is going on between both China and the USA has a major part to play in how successful next months iPhones are to be. However, still, many seem to be confident that this year’s iPhone sales are to bring joy to Apple – the company too is counting on it, as it has seen smartphone sales drop continuously over the past few quarters.

Popular analyst Daniel Ives recently said : “We believe that Apple is on a trajectory to sell between 180 million to 185 million iPhone units in [financial year 2020].” The Wedbush analyst also believes that the price for the devices will remain relatively stable over this period.
Many, along with Ives expect the iPhones to launch next month to bear fruit for Apple this time around. However, it can also be said that the company is quite likely to face some extensive difficulties in China. Primarily, this is because there has been a discernible nationalistic push for some of the suppliers in the Chinese market – which means that suppliers in the country are more and more encouraged to buy Chinese handsets rather than the ones that are offered by the US. But it is also true that the vast majority of Chinese customers that already have iPhones are only likely to upgrade or retain their usage of the company’s products and services.
In any case however, analysts believe that this period is especially set to be great for Apple because of the fact that around 900 million iPhones users exists worldwide. Of these, many are believed to be in their upgrade windows over the next year-and-a-half. And so if this year’s iPhone release can be maintained and remains steady, there is high expectations that Apple can hold out to take full advantage of the highly anticipated 5G driven iPhone launch set to take place next year.
