iPhone 8 sold better than the iPhone X in 2017, new data reveals
I think it's fair to say that the November launch of Apple's iPhone X marked the most exciting new iPhone release in years. Of course, the star of the show was the device's edge-to-edge OLED display, a design that completely did away with the tried and true home button and replaced it with Face ID. The iPhone X, in short, finally introduced a fresh new take on an iPhone design that had more less remained stagnant for quite a few years.
The iPhone X's new design notwithstanding, a new report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) relays that Apple's flagship iPhone was not the most popular iPhone model during the recent holiday quarter. According to data tabulated by CIRP, the iPhone X accounted for approximately 20% of all iPhone sales last quarter. Apple's two iPhone 8 models, meanwhile, cumulatively accounted for 41% of iPhone sales during the quarter.
