Apple Stock News
Apple has finally caught up with the iPhone X demand. The phone, which faced shipment issues on its debut due to supply chain constraints, can now be acquired in only one day after ordering. The next-day delivery option is available in the United States, the United Kingdom and a few other countries.
With this balance between supply and demand, which does not mean weak demand, but rather better-than-expected production, Apple is expecting to break records on revenue and profitability. The company is expecting to sell 83 million units this holiday season, an increase of 5 million units from the previous record. Although this optimism released on Apple’s first-quarter guidance, we will have to wait to discover these numbers.
On September 8th, 2017, I Know First forecasted that Apple’s iPhone X would find many eager buyers, despite its high price. As expected, the new iPhone indeed met a strong demand and its production was increased. Since this bullish forecast that was sent to I Know First customers, Apple stock increased 9.4%.
Whilst the iPhone X is truly in stock, Apple’s AirPods are sold out online. Frustrating last-minute holiday shoppers, the AirPods will only be available in the first two weeks of January. According to Tim Cook, despite Apple’s increased production capacity of the AirPods, the company is still not able to meet the strong level of demand.
