The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus seem to sell more than the iPhone X in its first 30 days on sale


The market research firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) surprises us today with a figure that attracts a lot of attention; During the first 30 days in which the iPhone X has been sold with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, it has sold less than these last two machines, reaching 30% of total sales of iPhones . IPhone 8 and 8 Plus have been provided by the company, the 40% of sales , so you could say that these two models of iPhone have been more popular than the iPhone X , right now the iPhone Star Apple .
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, despite completing a year on sale, would have taken 20% of sales. In its first month, last year, they occupied 70% of the sales of all the iPhones according to CIRP, which is exactly the percentage that all the new iPhones this year have taken; The 8, 8 Plus and X.
Sales distribution of different iPhone models
When seeing this graph it is curious to see how it destroyed the iPhone 6 the year it was presented, probably due to the novelty of the design. That same design, in successive years, did not have such a strong impact. In 2017, the distribution between different iPhone models is much wider, probably due to the fact of presenting the iPhone X next to the iPhone 8/8 Plus in the same event.
It is important to remember that all these are market studies that CIRP does, and not data that Apple gives. They could be wrong, although they usually approach what reality is. We can never confirm this data because Apple never gives the amount of sales it makes of each model of iPhone in particular, considering that figure as a strategic fact, which could help the competition. They always give the total number of iPhones sold, without specifying which is the most popular model. For that reason we will never know for sure if the iPhone X is sold less than the iPhone 8, but the data is surprising because until the iPhone X was put on sale, it was raining news of the slowdown in sales of the iPhone 8 compared to the iPhone 7 a year earlier. According to CIRP, many waited to try the iPhone X,to the classic and bought an iPhone 8, which is also $ 300 cheaper. Most likely, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will be the latest models with a Home button, although Apple will continue to sell them for a longer time than it does with some 32 GB versions of the iPhone 6, iPhone SE or iPhone 7/7 Plus currently.
By the way, for us to see how the things that CIRP publishes change, in this PDF they tell us that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were not selling as a new model, but as an S model, less than expected. This publication has only two months. Unfortunately, this time we have not gotten this note to investors in which they say that the iPhone 8/8 Plus has been sold more than the iPhone X, but we found the data and graphics in 9to5Mac , where they do not cite the original source it does not seem to be published anywhere.
