iPhone XR Puts Up Solid Sales Performance Matching iPhone 6’s in 2015
Consumer Intelligence Research Partners LLC. (CIRP), in a press release, announced iPhone XR took the top spot as the best seller among the new iPhone XS, and XS Max Models that accounted for 67% of US iPhone sales. The release actually hails Apple iPhone XR sales performance placing it on par with the then (2015) top billing iPhone 6 Plus Model.
Josh Lowitz, CIRP Partner and Co-Founder, said, “iPhone XR has become the dominant iPhone model. Its 48% share of sales in the quarter is the highest we’ve seen for an individual model since the iPhone 6 in 2015, which shared top billing with the 6 Plus but only had two outdated legacy models offered as alternatives.”
These and other findings are based on its survey of 500 US Apple customers that purchased an iPhone, iPad, Mac computer, or Apple Watch in the April-June 2019, notes that it met with ‘varied success’ due to competition and ‘head start approach by it.’
