Since Apple introduced it at its classic September event, the iPhone XR has become the next generation iPhone more affordable. However, it seems that the public does not finish receiving this phone as the company would like, and this feeling is being confirmed by analysts, who believe that this new phone could have been overrated. And the truth is that they do not lack reasons to create it.
Today, one of the big names of the community, Ming-Chi Kuo, has announced that it has significantly reduced the sales forecasts of the iPhone XR for its first year on sale, which is the moment in which more attention should be attracted by being the novelty Specifically, it has fallen from about 100 million units to 70 million, which is not a good sign in any case, although there seem to be strong reasons to apply this change.
First, Apple is suffering the consequences of the trade war between the United States and China, one of its main markets. In addition, some users expected a lower price for this model or superior features such as the double rear camera. Finally, the iPhone XR has to face great competition from Huawei, whose phones are receiving more attention than expected.
In short, it seems that the iPhone XR cannot become the great hope of Apple to revitalize the sales of its line of smartphones. In the end, it is a phone that should have been launched with the iPhone X when the design was the great novelty instead of the iPhone 8. In any case, there is still a lot, and you never know if the Cupertino will manage to turn it around to the tortilla next year.
