Read my edited answer before this... and maybe you'll get it. (one thing I am waiting for is the numbers from Cannacord in December or so. Wouldn't it be a shocker if the 5S was in the #2 spot and the 6+ in the #3 spot)
Apparently reading comprehension is dead. What you don't seem to get is that you are doing the exact same thing as me but you just don't get it. You want us to believe that a hypothetical phone would not sell as well as the current phones... which is something that you do not know. Let me speak slower for you... If you had said: "Apple is selling enough phones now that it probably makes no sense for them to go back to a 4" phone." I might have agreed... but you...
So... in other words... you used a number that shows absolutely no breakdown whatsoever, absolutely no idea whatsoever of 6+ sales, to prove your point? ... and you have the nerve to say that I am pulling numbers out of my ass. Oh, boy...
Isn't that what you did. Unlike you, I at least used words like "guess" and added a question mark. So who is skewing things to feel correct. Tell everyone how you know "absolutely" that a 4" iP 6 would not outsell the 6+. I want to see how you turn a hypothetical into an absolute... let's see that answer come out of your ass.
I don't recall anyone saying the iP 6 – would outsell the 6. I do think it would have definitely given the 6+ a run for the money. Out of that 10 million I would hazard a guess to say that no more than 2 million of those phones were 6+s. ... and we have no idea of the production capacity, so scarcity is not an argument.
The other thing I noticed from our little trip to the local telecom... there was plenty of stock of both the 6 and 6+... this close after launch. For the last 2 years it took a minimum of 4 weeks (and I think 6 weeks for the 5S) to see either the 5 or 5S.
How many of these things did Apple make?
Here... open mind this... My wife looked at the 6 and 6+... asked me if it made sense to upgrade from her 4S to a 5S. Didn't like the larger sizes, especially when she was happy with her 3.5' iPhone. So... who is not listening?
I think we're up to 14 cases... more than 50% increase since the other day. This could get bad... Apple could be up to 20 cases by the end of October and possibly 30 cases by the end of the 1st quarter. Hold onto your hats!!
By the way... if anyone gives a hot damn...
... my argument has always been that I think that Apple will do well with a phone larger than 4"... but that has always meant a phone smaller than 5". The 4.7" iPhone 6 is a perfect choice.
I also believe that Apple should keep a 4" phone up to date.
