CNBC discusses “off-the-charts” iPhone 6/Plus demand at Apple, with Jim Suva, Citi director of investment research.
We are projecting between 11-12 million [units]… the range has to do with supply constraints because demand, purely, we are seeing as very strong.
Having a shortage actually helps spur even more demand, but, purely put, this is a really hard product to make: the seamless integration of the glass, the rounded sides.. it’s a product that’s made to tight specifics [tolerances], it’s hard to make. We believe volumes will ramp, but, indeed, demand is off the charts. – Jim Suva, Citigroup analyst
