After about ten months of release, the iPhone X has finally reached a 60m shipment mark. Although this is not as impressive as you would expect as the iPhone 8 needed just six months to get to those numbers. These might not be the numbers Apple is expecting at this time, but there is a reason for excitement.
Even tho it took the iPhone X longer to achieve the figure, the revenue is higher than the iPhone 8, all thanks to its higher price tag. In the first ten months after its launch, the iPhone X has accumulated almost the same $62B revenue as the iPhone 6 in its first ten months. So for this reason, Apple might not worry much about the delay meeting the 60m shipment.
Another interesting fact about the iPhone X is that the medium shipments record on the iPhone X still does not mean lower revenue, as counterpoint data show, the iPhone X accounted for more revenue alone than each of Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi’s shipments in the past ten months.

Some countries have been instrumental to the success of the iPhone X, for example, the U.S and China recorded more sale of the iPhone X where more than half of all iPhone X was shipped. In comparison, India seems to contribute the lower with just 1% of the overall number.
The new set of iPhones will be launched today, Apple revenue is expected to move forward. One notable factor will be the introduction of a cheaper LCD version and two high-priced OLED models.
