Apple got slapped in the face? iPhone 14 first sales announced: super-sized cups sell best

On September 13, according to media reports, KGI Securities analyst Christine Wang wrote in another report that according to Apple’s latest booking data, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has become the best-selling model of this generation, and it is currently The performance is even better than the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The analyst also believes that the pricing of the iPhone 14 series is good for its future sales. (The picture comes from Apple official) The hot sale of the new iPhone has also led to the rise of Apple's stock price. Shares of Apple rose 3.9% through Monday's close, their biggest one-day gain since May 27, and closed above their 200-day moving average for the first time since August. However, at present, Apple's stock price has fallen by about 8%. Although the new iPhone has led to a recovery in Apple's stock price, it has fallen overall. Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo explained on Twitter that both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max showed "neutral" and "good" pre-order results, and these two products currently account for 45% of the entire iPhone 14 series shipments about. However, the demand for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus is very general. Ming-Chi Kuo said that the pre-orders of these two phones are worse than those of the iPhone SE 2022 and the iPhone 13 mini. Due to the sluggish demand, Apple may cut orders for the two standard iPhones. . (Picture from Apple official) Especially the iPhone 14 Plus, many analysts once believed that the large-screen mini is more popular than the small-screen mini, because of its larger size, longer battery life, and a slightly lower price than the Pro Max. That's why Apple replaced the mini with the Plus. In fact, the pre-sales of the iPhone 14 Plus slapped analysts in the face, worse than the iPhone 13 mini. Xiaolei believes that there are many reasons for the poor sales of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, the most important being two. The first is that the new machine is almost indistinguishable from the previous generation. Secondly, the starting price of the Plus version is too high. A mobile phone with a starting price of seven or eight thousand yuan has almost no advantages compared to other Android flagships except for its size, and if you add two thousand more, you can experience a more comprehensive configuration. The iPhone 14 Pro Max with unique smart island features is definitely more cost-effective. (The picture comes from Apple official) The mini and Plus are not bad products, but the price is too high to sell well. In the future, it is probably necessary to use the subsidy discount of the e-commerce platform to reduce the price, so as to bring the sales of the standard version. In addition, according to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, the next-generation iPhone 15 will usher in a huge upgrade, and Xiaolei recommends that everyone wait.
