This made me think of this years iPhones. Most Apple users just want their phones to work. iPhone 8 sells have been quite low compared to previous iPhone sales. This is leading analysts to believe (I agree) that more people are holding out for the iPhone X. After all, I don’t blame them.
BUT... I can foresee the iPhone X having the most issues as any iPhone in several years, and it probably won’t live up to the current status of hype, either. Especially when phones like the. Note8, V30, and Pixel 2 become more popular... heck, the S9 might be out by the time you’re able to get an X.
If this ends up being the case, it will be Apple’s nightmare. The supply-demand issues will only add to consumers’ level of frustration.
I’m interested in seeing how this all plays out.
Maybe Apple delayed the X until November not only due to supply issues but also simply because the product wasn’t ready (especially software-wise).
