Estimates begin to arrive of what may have been the best Christmas in history for Apple. A new report from Flurry claims that Nine models in the top ten of new US smartphone activations are iPhone, with only the LG K30 looming in tenth position.
And those metrics are Christmas Day only, December 25, a day in which all the gifts are opened in the homes of the United States and therefore represents a reflection of what they have wanted to give. Above all the models, the iPhone 11 is the one that has triumphed by far the most.
A bestseller, with the only absence of the iPhone 12 mini
As you can see in the graph above, the second most released model is the iPhone XR followed very closely by the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Later the iPhone 12 would come, with the iPhone 12 Pro behind the iPhone SE and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The new generation of phones has made its August with the most fans, but the general trend has been to take advantage of the price drop of previous generations.
The iPhone that have been released with less success have been the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, with a downward trend. IPhone 12 mini not listed, so your demand must not have been too high in relative terms. Another point to take into account is that the number of phones that have been activated this Christmas has been 23% lower than last year, probably caused by the pandemic and its economic consequences in many families.
But even with these difficulties, these Flurry figures predict that Apple’s next financial results press conference (expected to be at the end of January) is going to be very positive. Perhaps the best Christmas present was not an iPhone, but a few Apple stocks.
