A KGI Securities analyst has recently predicted that the upcoming iPhone 6s duo may not be able to repeat the success of their predecessors from last year.
The analyst believes that iPhone sales could nosedive in Q4 this year, compared to the same period last year. According to the analyst, Apple is likely to sell around 65 to 75 million iPhones during October to December 2015. The Cupertino based company had managed to sell 74.5 million iPhones during Q4 2014. So at best, the iPhone sales are likely to remain flat.
The main reasons behind this are reported to be the slowing Chinese economy leading to lower demand in China for the new iPhones, and the fact that Apple isn’t likely to impress consumers with the new ‘Force Touch’ feature. Unlike last year when Apple introduced larger display sizes with the iPhone 6 duo, the 2015 iPhones aren’t expected to offer as significant an upgrade in any area.
