Demand for Apple’s iPhone 6/Plus continues to grow as supply improves

“Apple’s new, larger-screened iPhones are even more popular now than they were when they were announced, according to survey data released Tuesday, boding well for the Cupertino company as it continues to chip away at supply shortages,” AppleInsider reports.

“Half of the surveyed consumers who plan to purchase a smartphone in the next three months are eyeing an iPhone, compared to 47 percent following the handset’s announcement in September,” AppleInsider reports. “nvestment bank Piper Jaffray conducted the survey of 1,004 consumers in the U.S. this month, and the results were revealed by analyst Gene Munster in a note to investors.”

AppleInsider reports, “At the same time, Apple’s manufacturing partners appear to be slowly catching up with demand.”

  1. Nigel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and…

    Marty: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?

    Nigel: Exactly.

    Marty: Does that mean it’s louder? Is it any louder?

    Nigel: Well, it’s one louder, isn’t it? It’s not ten! You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You’re on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you’re on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?

    Marty: I don’t know.

    Nigel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?

    Marty: Put it up to eleven.

    Nigel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.

    Marty: Why don’t you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?

    Nigel: (contemplative pause) These go to eleven.

    1. Best movie reference ever! it can be applied to samsung as well:
      Reporter: Mr Samsung, a few quarters you were selling 15 million S whatevers and making record profits. This quarter you are selling 10 million and losing money. Do you think you phone’s popularity is waning?
      Mr. Samsung: Oh no. No…no…no. No. Not at all….I just think that…. our appeal is becoming… more selective…

  2. The more people who see us out and about, happy with our big screen iPhones, the more others want one. I’m sure it helps that we’re constantly whipping them out at POS terminals for Apple Pay. Seeing how smooth and effortless Touch ID works must be amazingly futuristic in the eyes of the public.

    Personally, I’m still blown away by the concept of unlocking my phone with my fingerprint.

  3. All the ads on TV by various credit card companies advertising Apple Pay, and all the phone carriers advertising special plans for iPhone 6 don’t hurt either. They scream, “If you want to be current, you better have an iPhone.”

    1. I don’t watch much TV but I have noticed some Apple and Apple Pay commercials recently. I can’t remember any Samsung ads. Over the summer stupid Samdung and their next big thing is here crap was all over the place.

  4. An appropriated story for this topic.

    “According to a new report from the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, workers at the Zhen Ding Technology Holding factory in Shenzhen, China, are pressured into working 65-hour weeks, made to sleep on plywood beds in bleak dormitories and harassed by the facility’s security force. The work is so exhausting that some of the estimated 15,000 workers choose to sleep through their lunch breaks instead of eating, the report states.”

    ““The production goal increases every day,” the report quotes one worker as saying. “Today we met the production goal, and then it goes up tomorrow. It goes up until we can’t finish the job.””
