  • New Survey Claims Upcoming iPhone 6s/6s Plus Could Possibly Outsell iPhone 6/6Plus


    Apple’s flagship device, the iPhone, has always outsold its previous generation’s model dating back to the iPhone 3G. But the success of the company’s iPhone 6/6 Plus did the best the company has ever done, which makes people wonder if Apple could do the same with their next device. Not only were the 4.7 and 5.5-inch devices a big hit in the U.S., but it broke many records across the globe.

    However, a new RBC Capital Markets survey has found that the next generation iPhone, dubbed the iPhone 6s/6s Plus may be even more popular than the current flagship device. According to the new survey, the year-over-year growth in the December quarter is expected to have some very positive results. The firm notes:

    While there has been concern regarding AAPL going ex-growth in Dec-Qtr, our survey work shows carrier contracts are the bigger driver for refresh cycles, implying 6s cycle should be positive given contract renewals and sustained expansion of 4G networking in China. We are raising our estimates ahead of Street expectations for June, FY15/FY16 but maintaining our OP rating and $150 target.
    The new survey had 6,000 participants and it questioned their smartphone purchasing plans. They found that Apple customers are extremely loyal, as 84.3% of iPhone customers have plans of staying with the company when only 64.2% of Samsung customers have plans of staying with Samsung. This means that there is definitely potential for Apple to grow their numbers through switch-overs from other smartphone companies.

    Are you surprised by these results and what are your smartphone purchasing plans? Leave a comment in the section below and share your thoughts.

      I had Nokias since the days of Cingular Wireless. Got my 3G a few months before the 3GS was announced. I waited until the 4S came out to upgrade. Then I waited two years for the 5s to upgrade. Now I've waited 2 years, and I shall be upgrading to the 6s, and converting my wife from her Galaxy S4, and getting her a 6. Most Android devices just don't last. My brother is still rocking my 4S and going strong.

      I plan on keeping my 6+ for awhile until all the kinks are ironed out with the 6s plus.

      Don't the new phones always outsell the previous?

      Happy enough with my 6+ to wait for an iOS 9 jailbreak before I upgrade again.

      of course I say that every year. and every year it turns out to be a lie. haha.

      Since there will be no more subsidies I think sales will be lower than usual.
      I used to update regularly but not anymore. I will likely keep my current 6+ for 3 more years.
