Apple iPhone X best selling smartphone in early 2018

Apple Reports Second Quarter Results

Apple also sold 9.1 million iPad tablets during the three month period, basically in-line with forecasts of 9.17 million units. However, the iPhones continue to remain the best-selling smartphone models with the iPhone 7 taking the fourth spot with 5.6 million units sold during the quarter.

The firm estimated that the Apple iPhone X captured 5 percent market share worldwide in Q1 2018 and for the second quarter running. Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus was the sixth most shipped phone with 5.3 million units. The figure is up more than 10 percent from $655 a year ago, suggesting Apple's iPhone X, which starts at $999, has helped boost prices. The phone is powered by the A11 Bionic chip, which is also on the iPhone 8 series.

But today the iPhone X has an even greater claim to fame: it was the top-selling smartphone not just in China, but worldwide ...

Storms kill at least 78 in western and northern India
Six people died in neighbouring Dholpur in the high-speed dust storm that started around 7pm and wreaked havoc for two hours. Similar storms kill hundreds of people each year in India , but these were some of the most severe in recent decades.

With the release of Apple's quarterly results on Tuesday, though, Apple and the iPhone are still riding high.

In speaking with financial analysts on Tuesday, Cook said this regarding the technologies Apple built into the iPhone X: "Obviously, if those technologies move to a lower price point, that may lead to increased unit demand". The iPhone 8 shipped 12.5 million units while the iPhone 8 Plus shipped 5.6 million units. That's almost 5% of the 345 million smartphones that shipped in total.

The good news is that Apple might be trying to do something about that, giving you more power in less time. and without having to spend money on a new accessory. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which were believed to be unimpressive when compared to the iPhone X managed to be among the best selling smartphones of the quarter.

Apple Managed to Sell 52.2 Million iPhones in the Last Quarter
Apple's second quarter revenue included $9.1bn from its services business, which includes Apple Music , the App Store and iCloud. The maker of iPhones, iPads and other products posted revenue of $61.14 billion in the period, also exceeding Street forecasts.

Apple iPhone quarterly sales have beat Wall Street estimates with the company reporting sales of 52.2 million iPhones against a Wall Street target of 52.3 million. Tim Cook said the iPhone X has continued to do well for the company. The S9 Plus offers an attractive package for Android enthusiasts with a bezel-less design, curved display and a rich portfolio of apps. Heading into earnings, investors were hopeful that growth in that segment could help offset the cooling global smartphone market.

The phone managed to beat analysts' fears regarding its market performance due to its high price.

According to a March report by Counterpoint Research, Xiaomi became the number one brand in India, surpassing Samsung. Finally, HSBC set a $204.00 price objective on shares of Apple and gave the company a "buy" rating in a research note on Tuesday, January 30th.
