Apple has already shattered its sales records by selling over 70 million units of the iPhone in Q1 2015. Now, some analysts are predicting Apple to sell more than 50 million units more in Q2 2015, further solidifying the success of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, Business Insider reports.
UBS Evidence Lab, who is renowned for predicting iPhone sales, predicts that around 51.1 million units of the iPhone will be sold in Q2 2015. Wall Street analysts, however, predict that “only” around 45 million units will be sold.
According to UBS, the main reason why iPhones will remain top sellers in that time period is due to the success of the iPhone in China. In China, Apple recently (Q1 2015) grabbed the number one spot as the top smartphone manufacturer, beating local phone maker Xiaomi. Furthermore, past reports have revealed that the iPhone is still going strong in the five biggest European countries, taking away market shares from Android devices.
Lastly, the Apple Watch is also contributing to solid iPhone sales. Why? The smartwatch can only be paired with the latest iPhones such as the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, meaning you would have to get your hands on the latest iPhone to better enjoy the Apple Watch.
