IPhone sales of 2014 may be worse than those of 2016

The world's most prestigious analyst Apple has republished a note for its investors that doesn't seem very optimistic. All reports without exception say that 2016 will be the first year in which the iPhone sales down from the presentation of the first generation in 2007. In this sense, Ming Chi Kuo says that, in "the worst case", Apple could see how its iPhone is sold less than in 2014, what would be the worst sales since the iPhones rose 4 inches ..

But the worst thing is that, according to Kuo, Apple will be the only brand of the 5 that sell the most that you will see as the sale of your smartphone goes down compared to last year. According to the famous analyst, this year could be sold 190 million units, which is less than the 193 million that were sold in the year in which they presented the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. In the best case, Tim Cook and company would sell, or rather send, 205 million devices, which is 11.6% less than last year. If the worst case scenario were given, sales would fall by 18.1%.

IPhone sales could be worse than expected

The reasons given by the analyst to be so pessimistic is that the iPhone SE It will not have a very important impact, although its forecast has increased from 12 to 18 million units for this year. But, what is worse, Kuo says that there will not be many attractive points on the iPhone 7, so the device would need a new design that could attract buyers, a design that everything seems to indicate that it will not occur. In any case, there have been other cases of iPhones without great news (such as 5) and sales records were always broken.

The good thing is that, according to Ming Chi Kuo, everything will change in 2017, with an iPhone with a glass case similar to the iPhone 4 (I hope better) and with AMOLED screen. As always, we will have to wait to see if Kuo increases his success rate or is wrong this time.
