What if there was a rumor of a production disruption and no one was going?
Late last year (Remember 2020? It was all over the headlines), The Macalope speculated that annual rumors of iPhone shutdown were imminent.
But something funny happened on the way to the Colosseum where they announce all the rumors of end of production. (If you haven’t received an invitation, don’t feel bad. This is a limited event and many contributors Forbes.)
“IPhone demand starts the year off strong”
What? What is a mythological beast supposed to do with it? Print it, fold it and make yourself a hat? He can’t wear a hat because of the horns. It’s useless.
“Wedbush Securities says there is strong demand for Apple’s iPhone 12.”
“[El analista de Wedbush Securities Dan] Ives and his team predict that total iPhone manufacturing has grown 5% in recent weeks and now stands at between 60 and 70 million for the current quarter. “
That’s a lot of iPhones for the first quarter of the year.
Ives isn’t the only one suggesting iPhones are selling well this year.
Since DigiTimesUsually still on the verge of announcing the end of Apple, they even dared to say that demand could exceed supply due to “a growing shortage of terminal semiconductors.”
“Sales reached 18 million units [en el último trimestre de 2020], with Apple gaining more than 20% market share, and this is expected to continue into the Lunar New Year, matching the volume of units sold in the first quarter of 2021 to that of the previous quarter. “
That would be a pretty impressive achievement, as iPhone sales tend to drop significantly after the holidays.
So, was Bob Dylan right? Are the times changing? Call The Macalope whatever you like (come on, he won’t listen to you), but Apple’s curse is like gravity: it may one day go away, but it will always come back.
Isn’t that how gravity works? The Macalope is not an ophthalmologist.
The one with the horns keeps thinking that in the first half of 2021 we’ll see these reports of production cutbacks that say no one likes iPhones but admits they’re late.
To be clear, you wouldn’t mind if we didn’t see them. It’s a meaningless annual ritual that occurs because Apple tends to cut production after it takes off after launching in the fall, not because iPhones are no longer popular.
Sometimes it’s okay to have something to lean on during tough times, even if it’s something so heavy.
Nothing, I didn’t say anything. It does not mean anything. Forget what the Macalope said. It was stupid.
If you don’t have yours yet, you can now buy an iPhone 12. You might want to take a look at the best iPhone deals for the best price.
