Apple’s iPhone sales fall short of expectations (Apple Byte Extra Crunchy, Ep. 117)

Spread the love

Apple’s Q1 earnings show that iPhone sales are healthy, but they still missed expectations. Also, iOS 12 will delay new features in favor of focusing on performance improvements, and Mario Kart is coming! In 2019.

iPhone X is the top seller, but total iPhone sales take a step back (Apple Byte Extra Crunchy Podcast, Ep. 117):

    This is so hard to believe because apple sells alot of phones beyond iPhone X . Fake News

    I did like the iPhone 8 more never felt the need to upgrade to either of them. Having to pay for 1k not wasting time or money on iPhone X

    Congrats Apple, 77 million iPhones sold in Q1. Nobody can touch that

    They sold like 1% percent less phones, but made way more revenue. Sounds like a win to me.

    I'm sure the X is a nice phone. I bought the Note 8 for $650 though. The iPhone X is not hundreds of dollars better.

    People realizing that apple is junk especially for that price??? NO way! There is hope for humanity after all!

    I’m getting the HomePod when I get my tax refund. Very cautious. I’m an Apple fan, I already have Apple Music, and I have no other assistants. If I’m not impressed, I’ll take it back. But I’m definitely going to give it a try

    iPhone is not selling well? Hmm… I wonder why? 💸💸
    In my country (Portugal) the base model is 1464 dollars. Just the phone! No Thanks!!!

    The headphone jack isn’t coming back! Hell even even google took it out of the pixel so can we just move on and use the damn dongle or buy some wireless headphones and move on with life! ITS NOT COMING BACK!!!

    'oh its phone upgrade time, maybe I will get an apple, oh no wait I would need to lay down 300 upfront and then pay 40 a month more than any other phone. no thanks.'

    I have my iPhone X and I’m screaming “Hey SIRI” and it doesn’t respond, so how would the HomePod correct this. I believe people will easily get annoyed with this to interact with SIRI on the HomePod.

    You downplay the extra billion they made but exaggerated the 1% difference in sales lol. 14 weeks vs 13 weeks.

    They might have to put two Face ID sensors (one horizontal and the other vertical) on the iPad Pro

    I love that Brian is always objective when it comes to Apple. Too many of these Apple tech talk shows sound like "apple fan boys/gals" who defend Apple for anything they do, or ignore their errors.

    I still don't think the lower sales for the X has affected their bottom line. At least not yet.

    Man, SCREW whoever it was that came up with that stupid “What’s a computer?” ad! That has to be the most condescending, infuriating ad I’ve ever seen since Samsung made that one ad that threw shade at all of Apple’s iPhones all the way to the X and it’s Notch. I mean that one annoyed me, but not as much as Apple did with their ad! Whoever came up with that needs to be reprimanded and given a reality check.

    I was waiting for the mba successor but apple probably it's going to have the corage to do something "apple" and f it up, so I'll go with the new dell xps 15 2 -1or the hp spectre 2-1.

    Hey Brian and Beech …. I had an iPhone 6 then gave it to my mom since she wanted a smart phone. We contacted Apple to get a replacement battery. Apple got back to us and said it the battery will be available in March / April. Bad Apple??? What do you think? – Cheers Rick (S.Clara CAL)

    And you guys are worried about Apple lol. I think that Apple doesn’t care that much about stock market than pure cash flow coming in their bank accounts. In a couple of years they can buy a smaller country and all that comes within.

    Im a iPhone user and tbh they might be right when they say Face ID is "safer" than Touch ID but what I don't agree with is them shoving it down our throats. They had the ability to included Touch ID but choose not to. So ill be sticking with my 7 Plus for another year and see what Android comes up with

    Apple currently has their Steve Balmer….now they need their Satya Nadella.

    Follow up to my phone call about the 200 gigs of lost data. Apple called me not long after this episode came out and said that they think they found the problem and are going to attempt a repair. They also said please make sure you have a backup of your 200 gigs before we attempt the repair. 🤨
