This is why iPhone X is Apple’s most important product

“Have you ever wondered just how much interest there is in iPhone in comparison with Apple’s other products? Or wondered which of the company’s other products is likely to become a mass market hit next?” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld. “These charts from SEMRush (based on search volume) will show you what you need to know.”

“On launch, Apple sold around 3 million iPhone X units in just 20 minutes. That works out to be around 150,000 phones per minute and 2,500 iPhone X sales per second. That’s by far the biggest product Apple — or anyone — has to sell right now,” Evans writes. “That’s not to say people aren’t interested in Apple’s other products. They are really interested, as the below graph shows.”

“As you can see, interest in the Apple Watch Series 3 grew across the year. At time of writing, it remains the most interesting non-iPhone Apple product, followed by iPad, iMac Pro, MacBook Pro 2017 and iPad Pro,” Evans writes. “Now look at this chart, which does an excellent job of showing how interest in iPhone truly eclipses public interest in Apple’s other products.”

Evans notes that “most people hadn’t yet begun referring to iPhone X as iPhone X — we all saw it as iPhone 8 until we got closer to its announcement and the name was leaked.”

  1. Hmmm. I’m reading that sales of iPhone X are slumping in US and not picking up very much globally. I’m not worried. I’m sure people are saving up for Christmas, Hanukkah, and Ramadan.
