It is very unlikely that Apple will be able to respond to the great demand that there will be iPhone 7, according to the forecasts that are handled, during the Christmas season of purchases, throughout the month of December. The company's offer will not be able to meet the growing demand for the phone, says Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster.
Having verified the existing physical availability of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in a total of 134 Apple stores throughout the United States, Munster found that 47% of the demand was available for collection. A month ago, this figure only reached 40% of orders. Comparing this with what happened last year with the iPhone 6s, the result leaves much to be desired since at that time, the availability of the phone was 100%. Comparing specifically the two models of iPhone 7, the Plus has much less availability than the iPhone 7. The availability of the older model of the device is very limited reaching only 3%, while a month ago the availability, although it was not for shoot rockets, it touched 14%.
Piper Jaffray also made public that the inventory of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in China is even more limited than in the United States. In the Asian giant, availability was measured by examining the stock of 96 stores spread throughout the Chinese territory. There, availability is 16%. A figure that leaves much to be desired in the Chinese market if we compare it with the 47% that it enjoys in the USA.
In any case, it seems a constant in Apple the stock break at Christmas times for its flagship products. With the exception of the named case of the iPhone 6s, which last year did enjoy 100% availability in countries like the United States, few times in history Apple has been able to respond to the demand for its products at the time when they are most requested by consumers.
