We know that some of Apple’s critics out there are skeptical about the iPhone X’s success. After all with it priced so high, well and above most of the competition, wouldn’t it just deter customers who might choose a different brand instead? Turns out maybe not, because according to the latest statistics from Localytics (via Apple World Today), the iPhone X is doing just fine.
According to their numbers, it appears that the iPhone X is the most activated device over the Thanksgiving weekend, experiencing a 47% growth of new device activations compared to the previous four weeks. As you can see in the graph above, the iPhone X accounted for 47% of mobile device activations over Thanksgiving, with the Google Pixel 2 coming in close at 45%, following by the Galaxy Note 8 at 44%.
Interestingly enough Apple’s iPhone 8 and 8 Plus did not fare quite as well, accounting for 21% and 16% respectively, which when combined isn’t even close to the iPhone X’s activations. This seems to be in line with an earlier analyst report which said that Apple could have sold as many as 6 million iPhone X handsets during Black Friday.
In fact it seems that this could only just be the beginning, as KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that demand for the iPhone X hasn’t even peaked yet.
