Kuo: iPhone XR Pre-Order Demand Over First Weekend Exceeded That of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
iPhone XR pre-order demand in the first three days of the device’s availability was “better than that” of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus during the same period last year, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
In a TF International Securities research note obtained by MacRumors, Kuo said that although iPhone XR demand is lower than that of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max immediately after launch, overall iPhone XR shipment momentum is more stable because it is driving more customers to upgrade than the iPhone 8 series.
Kuo added that iPhone XR shipping estimates on Apple.com do not indicate exact demand, as the type of customers interested in the device are more general users, with many ordering through carriers to take advantage of promotions.
