While there have been reports of muted sales for the iPhone 8 series since fans are waiting for the iPhone X, Apple CEO Tim Cook has been quoted as saying the new iPhones have done really well. According to a report in CNBC, Apple’s CEO says Apple Watch Series 3 is sold out in many parts of the world and the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus were also sold out in some stores. “You can see what’s going on here this morning — I couldn’t be happier,” said Cook while he was visiting an Apple Store.
Even as Cook praised the Apple Watch Series 3 and how it has done in terms of sales, he did talk about the LTE connectivity issue. Earlier reviewers in the US had pointed out Apple Watch Series 3 had problems with LTE connectivity and this was something the company had confirmed itself. Apple had said a software update will fix the problem.
In his comments to CNBC, Tim Cook said, “The issue is very minor, it will be fixed in a software update. It has to do with the handoff between Wi-Fi and cellular, and we’ll fix that.” He also pointed out that this only happens in some cases.
While Cook is highlighting the success of the Apple iPhone 8, the price tag of the Apple iPhone X has also raised questions. Cook in a segment with ABC’s Good Morning America had justified the $999 US pricing saying the iPhone X ( Ten)’s price is a value price and that users are paying for all the technology included in the phone.
