Apple is still selling over 1 million iPhone 8 and iPhone X units Per Day

“Localytics provided me with an update on the market shares of iPhones in use as of Monday, December 18,” Chuck Jones writes for Forbes. “By Localytics monitoring 70 million iOS devices globally and using an estimate of total iPhones in use, it is possible to project how many have been sold and their daily sales rate.”

“In the long run, the number of iPhones in use should be very close to that number that have been sold. The bottom line is this data helps to confirm that iPhone 8 and X sales remain strong (a combined one million plus per day) even though the daily number has slowed,” Jones writes. “While inventory of the iPhone X has improved, if you want to get one in an Apple store, it is best to shop in the morning.”

“The iPhone 8 Plus is still doing better than the iPhone 8. When you add the higher priced iPhone X into the mix the average selling price or ASP for iPhone’s should move up substantially,” Jones writes. “This is the most recent data from Localytics.”

• iPhone 8: 3.0% translates to 23.6 million sold
• iPhone 8 Plus: 3.69% translates to 29.1 million sold
• iPhone X: 4.03% translates to 35.9 million sold

Jones writes, “Total daily sales of 1,060,000 per day.”

    1. You really think Apple’s share price is going to rise by $20 in a few weeks? Apple isn’t a FANG stock, you know. CNBC will manage to find a few talking heads who will claim things aren’t going all that well for Apple in China and India, to keep potential Apple investors on the run and heading for Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google, Microsoft, and Tesla. They will be telling potential investors to head for companies with GUARANTEED unlimited growth, unlike Apple. /s

      I’ve seen this happen too many times before and watched Apple stock go from sizzle to fizzle as cowardly investors dump the stock. You would think that just the incoming mountain of overseas cash would be enough to send Apple stock soaring, but that’s not going to happen. It disappoints me how Apple investors are so easily swayed, but that’s just how they are. Apple’s P/E may even become more compressed, so I wouldn’t get overly excited about increased iPhone sales.

      1. You are griping about the wrong thing, macnificentseven48. Cowardly investors are your friends. Their overreaction to bad news creates buying opportunities for serious investors. As Bill posted, buy on the dips initiated by the talking heads and implemented by the clueless cowardly investors. Then ride AAPL back up. Just a week or so ago I believe that AAPL was around 169. Now is it $176. That represents a potential gain of 4.1% from a short-term oscillation.

  1. Obviously SamDung is kicking Apppple’s Azz…….
    LOL……buy the dips, HOLD the rips….!!!!
    Wait til repatriation and Special Dividend for Shareholders……

  2. Of the 52.1 Million iPhone 8s Localytics estimates have sold, about 9 million were sold in the September quarter.

    During the December quarter iPhone sales have been about:
    iPhone 8 (all models) 43.1 million
    iPhone X (all models) 35.9 million

    Gross revenue is split about 50/50 between the two versions.

    But that’s only if Localytics’ data and interpretation is accurate.

    1. So that’s 79M in the December quarter so far, with about 7 days of sales to go that makes it 86M phones sold in the december quarter.
      That is, if they sold no iPhone 7, 7+, 6s, 6s+, and SE.

      Holy cow!!

    1. Wow…staggering when you stop to think about the scale of this feat…they just started building the damn things last year! And guess what- they are already gearing up for next year, or face the wrath of all the naysayers who say Apple’s lost it’s mojo…
