As iPhone X opens up sales in Apple retail stores around the world, the media are racing to cover the grand occasion of the sale. As with the launch of the iPhone X models, iPhone 8 released a few weeks ago will inevitably be used to compare.
As Apple's iconic building, Apple's flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York City has always been the focus of attention, especially when it comes to the sale of new iPhone phones like today. Many media workers came to the scene early.
Here they can see the queued team, stay informed of changes in the store, many well-known analysts and experts and scholars also to the site to mention the new machine, they also accepted a simple interview on the scene. There are also media interviews with regular customers queuing and some questionnaires.
Photos from foreign media can be seen in New York Fifth Avenue Apple retail line up very many people, on-site reporter reported queuing up almost a full stream of people. From the purchase point of view, the level of inventory in the retail store is good, should take into account the number of potential customers in this store.
As you can see, the high selling price of iPhone X did not stop the enthusiasm of people buying. The long queues of the retail stores in the past years have returned. This is in stark contrast to the relatively deserted iPhone 8 release.
If you feel that Apple's Fifth Avenue flagship store is not universal representation, then we can look at another more remote Apple retail store situation. Called Bayshore, outside the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Bayshore became the smallest Apple store in the state after Mayfair's renovation and expansion of two other Apple retail stores and the relocation of the Madison store to Hilldale.
When the original iPhone 8 was released to the scene when the media conducted an interview, the result was disappointing scene. However, the crowd you see in front of the same store today is clearly more in line with the new iPhone launch.
Although it is November now, the outdoor temperature is relatively low, the sky is late and still dark, but there are already over 100 shops waiting to be booked, and one after another people are joining in. A few weeks ago when the iPhone 8 was on sale, only four people lined up, two of them watch the watch there.
From the current situation, users are still very much for the iPhone X, into the store to purchase much better than expected (though not all possible places). In addition to the retail stores, Apple is also stepping up its online reservation offerings, and many report that their delivery times have been reduced and the general availability of the iPhone X has been reduced to three to four weeks.
As we have seen on a global scale, Apple's high-end iPhone flagship more than 1,000 US dollars price did not stop the demand. The latest Apple guidance shows that Apple's 2018 first quarter will break the previous record, with strong sales of new iPhone-driven.
