• Supply for Apple's iPhone 6 Improves With Demands Getting Stronger



    According to a new Gene Munster survey conducted by analyst Piper Jaffray, Appleís iPhone 6 and 6 Plus demand is still on the rise even though supply for the two devices have been catching up. 1,004 U.S. consumers were surveyed and Jaffray has reported that the demand for the iPhone has increased for consumerís upcoming smartphone plans. According to the Munster survey results,

    We conducted a survey of 1,004 US consumers. Of those looking to purchase a smartphone in the next three months, 50% said they plan on purchasing an iPhone vs. 47% in September, following the iPhone 6 announcement. By comparison, demand for the iPhone decreased from 50% in Sep-13 to 44% in Dec-13 following the iPhone 5S launch. Overall we believe this shows that consumers are extremely interested in the larger screen iPhone 6, a testament to the strength of the current upgrade cycle.
    Apparently 50% of those planning to purchase a smartphone in the next few months have stated that they plan on getting the iPhone. However back in September, it was only 47% which means there has been an obvious 3% increase in demand. Back when the iPhone 5s was launched, demand for the device actually decreased right after it was launched. It also appears that Apple has been catching up on supply as the two devices now have 1-3 business day shipping. Two weeks ago, it was reported that 56.1% of iPhone 6 units were in stock and last week 77.6% of stores had it.

    Ship times for Apple phones are now just one business day for most devices and 1-3 business days for others. If you are planning on purchasing a new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, this is definitely the time to go out and get one.

      That's why they are a $700 Billion company. They sold more iPhones in one weekend than Samsung did in entire 3 month span.
