In the first nine months of the year before the iPhone X's launch, analysts worked themselves into a tizzy debating whether or not the iPhone X would be a home run. The general consensus has always been that the iPhone X would be a success; the question is just how many Apple would sell.
Early on, analysts coined the idea of a "super-cycle" of updates, which would be driven by the iPhone X's innovative features, plus the fact that many users didn't see a need to upgrade to the iPhone 7. There would be so many people just desperate for upgrades, so the narrative went, that Apple would be printing even more money than usual.
