iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are expected to be the most popular models in China
Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives, who had said in June this year that 350 million out of the 950 million active iPhones out there are due for an upgrade, believes that the Chinese market is the linchpin to iPhone’s 5G supercycle. He expects 20 percent of iPhone upgrades to come from China in the coming year.
The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are expected to be the most popular models in the country because of their larger 6.1-inch displays. The 6.7-inch screen iPhone 12 Pro Max may not attract that much attention because of its high price.
Wong also believes that it’s a good move on Apple’s part to release the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro before the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
