iPhone 11 Pro
Apple launched three new smartphones this year; the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. These three smartphones went on pre-order on Friday in the US and are scheduled to go on sale on September 20. Apple-watching analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released an investor note mentioning that iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro order demands were better than his expectations. The report also lists out other reasons which could have contributed to the higher demand for the new iPhone models.
This information has surfaced after 9to5Mac published the findings from Kuo’s note. The Apple analyst has based his predictions mainly on Apple’s online shipping estimates. Kuo points out that there is a strong demand for newly introduced colours such as the Midnight Green on the iPhone 11 Pro, and the Green and Purple for the iPhone 11 models. However, he has raised concerns about the production problems of the glass for the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro could mean availability constraints.
