iPhone XR, Apple’s a lot of budget-friendly model in the existing iPhone lineup, was the bestselling smart device from the company in the US throughout the last quarter of 2018. And, we are here in April of 2019 and the smart device is still controlling the sales in the United States by still being the bestselling iPhone design in the last quarter (Apple’s financial 2nd quarter) based on a new report shared by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP). But as the Cupertino based tech giant doesn’t reveal the iPhone systems sale numbers any more, the CIRP has actually based its findings on a small survey from 500 people.

According to a new report by CIRP, all the three iPhone designs; iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR accounted for 59 percent of the overall United States iPhone sales throughout Apple’s financial 2nd quarter, with the iPhone XR accounting for 38 percent sales alone. CIRP partner and co-founder, Joseph Lowitz states, “It stays the bestselling private design again this quarter, after launch early in the December 2018 quarter. In the US, the newest iPhone designs offered about in addition to the latest models a year ago, at about 60 percent of total sales. Based on these trends, we approximate an Average Selling Price of around $800, a decrease from the previous quarter.”.

Since the iPhone XR has actually launched, it has actually stayed the bestselling smart device for Apple. Everything started back in November 2018, when it was Counterpoint noted that the smart device was the bestselling iPhone design, in spite of a 20 percent drop in general sales year-on-year. Furthermore, according to an earlier report by CIRP, within 30 days of its release, the iPhone XR represented 32 percent of the overall iPhone sales in the USA. Previously this year in January, all the current iPhone designs including the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR were marked down in Japan due to bad sales. The price-cut not just can be found in Japan but was likewise seen in China with the discount being as steep as $118 for the entry-level iPhone XR. Last but not least, previously this month, the Cupertino based tech-giant marked down the iPhone XR in India too, in a restricted time promo, with the beginning price now set at Rs. 59,900 for the base variation.

The most recent report by CIRP is based upon a study done on 500 US Apple customers, which is a rather small number. And while the study and the sales do prove that the iPhone XR is the bestselling iPhone model, it stills does not change the truth that because of the lower pricing of the handset, the average asking price of the iPhone has boiled down considerably when compared to earlier times.
