Apple Bounces Back in China with 40% Growth after Eight Slow Quarters

Apple Bounces Back in China with 40% Growth after Eight Slow Quarters Apple Bounces Back in China with 40% Growth after Eight Slow Quarters

The response to the new iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus has been positive, and the Chinese audience is hyped for the iPhone X.

It's being reported by Canalys in a new report that "Apple's declining streak in China has come to an end, as shipments grew 40% from 8 million in Q3 2016 to about 11 million this quarter".

"Price cuts on earlier models in the run up to the release of the iPhone 8 have also certainly helped, but the growth in sales is unlikely to be sustained into the December quarter". The mix of the iPhone 8 series at launch is also higher than the corresponding mix of the iPhone 7 series at launch previous year. Apple's offers by and by expanded as of late to over 3%, which influences the market to top of the organization $842 billion. Instead, local brands that sell Android-based smartphones have dominated sales growth in China. The trend seen by Kantar is now confirmed in a new research report today and that's great news as Apple reports their fiscal Q4 financials on Thursday.

Canalys overall remains bearish about Apple's prospects in China.

Apple has been working remarkably to keep up its quarterly deals, the entire year.

But while there is high interest in the iPhone X, the high costs and limited supply means it won't be a big factor in sales for this current holiday quarter.

"Demand from iPhone users have helped fuel orders for iPhone 8s and the larger iPhone Plus in China in the absence of the iPhone X", said Canalys Research Analyst Mo Jia. According to the data, Huawei, Oppo, and vivo are in the lead with 19%, 18% and 17% of all shipments, respectively. Huawei saw an increase of 23 percent to 22 million units, emphasizing just how far behind Apple has fallen.
