Accordingly, he predicts Apple has sold about 54.2 million iPhone devices, 8.8 million iPad devices, and 3.9 million Apple Watch devices in 3 months. These numbers reflect the reality of today’s market when the iPhone continues to be the product which has high sales growth, increases approximately 54% compared to the same period last year.
This forecast is relevant to recent targets of Apple when this company and its suppliers are planning to produce about 85 to 90 million next generation iPhone devices later this year. If this plan of Apple is correct, this will be a new record with sales of the iPhone.
Last year, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has brought to this company resounding victories. Many reports have noted there are about 70 to 80 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sold in 2014.
Looking at the whole picture, this is a golden time for Apple to pass other opponents. For LG, the G4 is still a mystery despite being rated as one of the best Android products this year. For Samsung, constantly in recent months, South Korean manufacturers have reduced sales expectations for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.
For the iPad, the product which is known as the king of the tablets will continue to decline sharply. As predicted, sales of the iPad in Q3 / 2015 will decrease by 33.5% compared with the Q3 last year. Of course, Ming-Chi Kuo also expects Apple will release a new mini iPad this year. This will help the company compensate for sales at present.
For Apple Watch, he says, users have started to care about wrist devices more. This will boost Apple Watch’s sales to 5.5 million in the last 3 months of this year, increases 41% compared to the present time. Specifically, Kuo stresses Apple will launch a total of 15 million Apple Watch devices later this year.
Related to the new generation iPhone, according to some rumors, they can be iPhone iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the duo of new products will improve a lot compared with previous predecessors. Kuo believes that Apple will use the aluminum alloy of Watch Sport for the new generation iPhone. This material is said to be more durable than aluminum casing on the iPhone 6 to 60%.
Besides, most likely that Apple will release another color version for the iPhone line. It is rose gold. Despite a lot of the concept appears related to iPhone 6s, it is unclear about the exact color of the rose gold version.
About the size of the next generation iPhone, Kuo says it will wider and higher than the iPhone 6 about 0.15 mm, however, the thickness may be increased to 0.2 mm.
In particular, the biggest change predicted on the iPhone 6s is Force Touch display. Reportedly, this is new touchscreen technology of Apple used on Apple Watch. Moreover, Kuo also mentions that Apple will also upgrade the iPhone 6s camera from 8 MP to 12 MP after many years of not upgrading.
However, the experts also suggest that ordering iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will not be as simple as the traditional iPhone line. Even, this will cause the sales of the new generation iPhone decreased because using the Force Touch screen on iPhone 6s or 6s Plus will cause problems related to the shortage of components.
