Apple a vandut 9 milioane de iPhone 5s si iPhone 5c in weekend-ul lansarii, 200 de milioane de iDevice-uri au instalat iOS 7


20/09/13 New iPhones launch at Apple Store

In urma cu cateva minute compania Apple a anuntat un nou record de vanzari in ceea ce priveste terminalele iPhone, dar si orice alt model de telefon mobil disponibil pe piata. Asa cum stiti cu totii, iPhone 5s si iPhone 5c sunt disponibile deja in nu mai putin de 11 tari de pe glob, compania din Cupertino punandu-le in vanzare vinerea trecuta, pe 20 septembrie. Ei bine, pe toata perioada weekend-ului care tocmai s-a incheiat, cei de la Apple au reusit sa vanda nu mai putin de 9 milioane de terminale iPhone, o cifra care depaseste cu mult estimarile analistilor si ale multora dintre noi. Cifra este cu atat mai mare cu cat anul trecut Apple reusea sa vanda „numai” 5 milioane de terminale iPhone 5 in weekend-ul lansarii si inca 2 milioane in weekend-ul lansarii din China, iar in urma cu doi ani erau vandute 4 milioane de terminale iPhone 4S in weekend-ul lansarii. Asa cum era de asteptat, cei de la Apple nu ne ofera mai multe detalii despre numarul terminalelor iPhone vandute in functie de model, deci nu stim cate din aceste 9 milioane sunt iPhone 5s si cate sunt iPhone 5c.

Oricum, iPhone 5s a fost mult mai popular decat fratele sau mai ieftin, stocurile epuizandu-se  in cateva ore in majoritatea magazinelor indiferent de versiunea de culoare, capacitatea de stocare sau de pret, care a fost mai mare in comparatie cu cel al iPhone-urilor de generatie anterioara. Cel mai repede s-au epuizat stocurile de iPhone 5s auriu, apoi cele argintii, pentru ca la urma sa ramana cele gri spatial care au fost, cel mai probabil, disponibile in numar mai mare. Tim Cook afirma ca este cea mai buna lansare de iPhone de pana acum si ca Apple a reusit sa stabileasca un nou record de vanzari. De asemenea, CEO-ul companiei americane afirma ca Apple Store-urile au ramas fara iPhone 5s pe stoc, dar ca primesc noi unitati in mod regulat si incearca sa faca fata cererii uriase. De asemenea, Cook crede ca toate cozile din fata magazinelor Apple au fost incredibile.

In comunicatul de presa transmis de catre Apple ceva mai devreme se mai regaseste o cifra importanta, care reprezinta numarul total de iOS device-uri care au facut update la noua versiune a iOS. Lansat miercuri, iOS 7 a fost instalat deja pe 200 de milioane de iOS device-uri, ceea ce inseamna ca in jur de 25% din totalul iOS device-urilor au instalata noua versiune a iOS deja. Impreuna cu cele 9 milioane de iPhone-uri vandute, Apple a reusit sa mai obtina inca o realizare remarcabila.

Practic, Apple ne demonstreaza ca reuseste in fiecare an sa vanda tot mai multe iPhone-uri si ca popularitatea acestor terminale creste tot mai mult, in detrimentul altor produse similare a caror producatori ii ataca pe cei din Cupertino, si mai ales produsele acestora, in fiecare afirmatie, spot publicitar sau ii copiaza fara niciun fel de rusine. De asemenea, trebuie sa specificam ca cifra de 9 milioane de terminale iPhone vandute este atinsa in conditiile in care China Mobile, cel mai mare operator de telefonie mobil din lume, nu vinde inca noile dispozitive.

Intregul comunicat de presa transmis de catre Apple este disponibil mai jos, iar in el veti putea vedea si ca 11 milioane de utilizatori (din Statele Unite) au accesat iTunes Radio pana acum, melodia Hold On, We’re Going Home a cantaretului Drake fiind cea mai populara.
