According to the latest statistics, Apple is achieving great success in the Chinese market with its two latest models, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. The fact that these phones are always "sold out" has helped sales of the iPhone lineup grow up to 230 percent - analyst Timothy Arcuri said.
In comparison, iPhone models launched in September - the iPhone XR, XS or XS Max helped Apple achieve 110 percent growth. This shows how popular Apple's latest iPhone lineup are in the world's largest smartphone market, China.
According to analyst Timothy Arcuri, one of the main reasons for the huge growth in sales for Apple comes from the large number of Chinese users upgrading from iPhone 7 to iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 11 itself is significantly cheaper than the iPhone XR version launched last year, making the phone well-received by many Chinese consumers.
In addition, the attractive exchange program to attract maximum users to upgrade to iPhone 11 and 11 Pro also Apple has achieved certain success in the Chinese market.
Worth mentioning, this growth is in stark contrast to public opinion and survey results in China when the lineup was officially announced.
According to SCMP, the design of the rear camera cluster on iPhone 11 Pro, Pro Max, or even iPhone 11 received many criticisms from Chinese netizens.
"Is the spider about to crawl?", A user on Zhihu humorously commented when the photo of the dual camera cluster on the device was edited into the eyes of a spider. Other netizens manipulated photos of iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone 14 by "photoshop" adding a number of mahjong-like cameras.
