It's suggested that a weak Chinese market and a lack of compelling iPhone 6s features will result in flat sales.
The analyst quoted by the Taiwanese media says there are two main factors that could contribute to these results. First of all, compared to last year, smartphone sales in China have declined along with the spending power, and as you should all know, China is the largest smartphone market in the world.
Secondly, the analyst says that another big reason that could contribute to the iPhone 6s duo yielding zero or negative growth is Force Touch. More to the point, the technology itself should not slow down the market performance, but because Force Touch is supposed to be one of iPhone 6s’ main new driving feature and due to the fact that the public hasn’t been wowed by FT on the Watch and the new MacBook, the inclusion of Force Touch on the upcoming iPhone flagship might not attract as many customers as Apple might hope.
While analysts may be skeptical, Apple is reportedly expecting even higher demand for the new iPhone than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus released last year. According to the WSJ, it's asked suppliers to manufacture a record 85 million and 90 million units of the new phones.
Apple is expected to unveil the new iPhone 6s on September 9th. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
