This is related to the uncertain sales of the Apple flagships.
According to a survey of the publication ZDNet, many users of older iPhone models don’t see the point in buying new smartphones. According to the owners iPhone of different generations, they came to the conclusion that they are entirely satisfied with current smartphones and the high prices of the new models helps to curb interest in flagships.
Most often, users of older iPhone announced that iOS 12, their phones started to work on more than enough speed.
“I see no reason to switch to iPhone XR. I installed iOS 12 to your iPhone 6s it started working like new. And after I replaced the battery on Apple shares. Now my old iPhone is not only fast, but long. And I compared camera with camera iPhone X — I will not say that the difference is incredible. So why would I spend almost $1000 on a new iPhone?”, — said one of the interviewed users.
Journalists ZDNet appealed directly to the Apple stores to learn about the demand for the iPhone XR. Apple employees confidently say that the iPhone is XR worth the money bought and demand model is a little different compared to previous iPhone generations. However, the question of why Apple offers iPhone purchase XR on special conditions with high rate on trade-in less than two months after the release of the mobile staff are unable to give a clear answer.
