There is a high demand for the XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4, according to Ming-Chi Kuo

Caídas accidentales y ritmo cardíaco (ECG): estas son las novedades de salud que trae el Apple Watch Series 4

Ming-Chi Kuo doesn’t work only during pre-keynote rumor times, he is also seen in hindsight . The analyst has taken out one of his reports in which he talks about the reception that the new iPhone XS and the Apple Watch Series 4 are having, which can already be booked since last Friday.

Kuo has analysed the delivery times for all the new products, and so far he says that the demand is as expected for the XS Max models . The “high-price” strategy would therefore be working, with a good amount of reserves made from China (this dual SIM exclusive in that country may be bearing fruit).

Right now, delivery times for the iPhone XS Max are two weeks ahead of the initial demand for the iPhone X last year. That could mean fewer units of the phone are being reserved this year, but Kuo says demand is high and those shorter delivery times are due to logistical improvements . More phones are available and can be shipped earlier.

I would add here that we are no longer talking about a single model and size: now the demand is shared between the iPhone XS and the XS Plus, without neglecting those who are patiently waiting to book the iPhone XR on October 17th. In this regard, Kuo says that demand for the 5.8-inch iPhone XS is lower than expected and forecasts that the XS Max will accumulate 25-30% of bookings compared to all other iPhone models including previous generation models.

The Apple Watch Series 4 is the device that would stand out the most in terms of bookings , with an even better demand than they were expecting at Apple. At the moment the most common models of the watch are already being shipped with up to 3 or 4 weeks of lead time, suggesting that the units Apple would have prepared for the initial launch are already sold out. Anyone who wants a Series 4 will have to be patient, either in these stocks or standing in line on launch day.
