iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 will be the most difficult devices to find during this holiday season.
Both of Apple‘s new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, are in great demand these days. In fact, the demand for both new iPhone models is so strong that Apple is unable to meet it. And when CNet inquired about when the supply will be able to meet the demand, Apple CEO Tim Cook said, “We’re not even on the same planet.”
Tim’s answer clearly explains that it will be hard for buyers to find iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus during this holiday season. Although Apple suppliers have increased production of both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, still the available supply “isn’t even close to meeting customer demand,” said Tim Cook during a conference call in which he discussed Q4 results.
Tim also said that the iPhone franchise sales always made a major contribution in Apple sales and the launch of large screen iPhones further boosts the sales. Last month, Apple launched iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch screen and iPhone 6 Plus with 5.5-inch display with brand new mobile payment feature in Apple Play.
Cook said that Apple sold 39.3 million units of both new iPhone models in the fiscal fourth quarter due to strong demand. “We’re selling everything we’re making,” Tim said.
However, the Apple CEO refused to give a breakup of the sales separately for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, He said that it is not fair to “look at the mix because everything is selling out.” He also said that the demand of Apple products improved in every region. And he said that this improvement is unusual.
