Apple announced its quarterly earnings this week and contrary to analyst predictions, its most-expensive iPhone X came out to be its best-selling smartphone in the first quarter of 2018.
The iPhone X was believed to impact Apple’s sales revenue owing to its sheer USD 1,000 price tag. However, Apple shipped 16 million units of the ‘most expensive iPhone ever’ in the given quarter, Cnet reports.
In comparison, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which were launched alongside the iPhone X, sold 12.5 million units and 8.3 million units respectively.
In terms of revenue, Apple earned USD 150 billion and USD 34 billion in earnings for the first half of its fiscal year.
