Apple's latest iPhone 11 lineup went up for preorders over the past weekend and if a research note from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is to be believed, iPhone 11 demand has been higher than the expectations. His prediction is based on the shipping estimate shared by Apple for online preorders.
He believes that the newly announced iPhone 11 color options are one of the key factors behind higher demands. These new colors are Purple and Green for iPhone 11 and Midnight Green for the iPhone 11 Pro. It seems like iPhone lovers want to get their hands on these new colors as soon as possible so that they can stand out in the crowd, even among many other iPhone 11 buyers.
Apple is currently showing shipping estimates of two to three weeks or higher for the new colors as compared to less than 10 days for other standard color options. Kuo mentions that the glass casings for Midnight-Green color variant are currently facing manufacturing issues which should result in more delay. The delay will be because of Apple shipping only limited quantities until it can fix the issues.
Kuo has also said that iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 are proving to be more popular in the United States and China respectively. The difference is likely to be because of the price difference between the two models. The iPhone 11 starts at around $699 and iPhone 11 Pro at about $999 which is a significant price gap. The relatively low iPhone 11 pricing and noteworthy spec/feature upgrades are tempting for many Chinese users, especially those who are still using older models like the iPhone 6 or iPhone 7 series. To be honest, this is not surprising considering that iPhone XR proved to be hugely successful because of the same reasons.
If you are interested in buying an iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro or even the iPhone 11 Pro Max, you can still preorder your preferred model in your desired configuration option. All these models will go on sale starting September 20th which is this Friday.
