Look, I’m sure demand is fine however whatever you hear about Apple in Asia having lower demand, it is true. I have lived and worked in Asia 20 years and without question, hardly any middle income people use iPhones any more. I’ve asked why and the answer I get all the time is it’s too expensive and you get a bigger phone with the android manufacturers devices.
This is all started when the iPhone 5 was released when Samsung was producing larger phones. Apple didn’t recover. The market is probably bigger for phones but not just iPhones.
As for the latest phones, it used to be in Hong Kong that if I didn’t place an on line order in the first minute of availability I’d miss out for 3 months. This time I was hours late to be able to try for an XS Max and I could get one for delivery on the 22nd.
