Will the iPhone 6s be Apple's biggest seller?
Confidence in the 6s is high
Apple is confident that the iPhone 6s will be the most popular iPhone. So much so they have, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal, placed an order with suppliers for 85 – 90 million units of the 6s and 6s Plus versions of the upcoming handset. This is the biggest order Apple has ever placed and tops last year’s order of 70 – 80 million units.
Last year, supply issues left some customers waiting up to 4 weeks for their new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus as Apple sold over 135.6 million phones between September 2014 and March 2015. So it bodes well that Apple are preparing for the expected influx of orders. However, WSJ reports that the order is not due to be completed until 31 December 2015 so it’s wise to anticipate some stock issues at launch.
In the pink?
Our early indications show demand is high for the iPhone 6s (more on this here) and with many 5s owners now coming to the end of their two year contract we expect to see plenty of interest in the 6s, particularly if rumours of a new Rose Gold edition are true. When Apple introduced the Gold iPhone 5s back in 2013 it sold out almost instantly and became one of the hardest models to track down. Will Apple learn from previous launches and bolster stock of the Rose Gold edition this time?
