Apple iPhone X tops holiday phone shipments - Canalys

Wednesday 24 January 2018 | 09:32 CET | News
Apple shipped 29 million iPhone X units in the fourth quarter, including 7 million to China, making that model the best-shipping smartphone over the holiday season, according to the latest study from Canalys. Demand was driven in operator-centric markets by people upgrading their phones, and so being able to spread out payments over many months. Canalys said the performance was impressive for a device priced at USD 999 but that it was not the fastest ever for an iPhone. Shipment numbers were slightly below industry expectations, which means the price tag still had an effect.
