We will not get a specific breakdown of how well Apple Watches sells tomorrow when the company presents its final quarterly results. However, UBS analysts are estimating how Apple's signature portable sells (telling: "like hotcakes"), as well as anticipating sales growth for Apple Watch next year.
Highlights: Apple will sell around 24 million watches this year, UBS forecasts. Next year, the company will also see a 40 percent annual increase in the number of sold clocks, with this figure rising to 33 million.
To drive this point even more, UBS anticipates Apple Watch growth to spur about 5 percent of Apple's total revenue growth next year, which would be similar to Apple selling around 1
From 9to5Mac "The analyst firm also believes the increased price of Apple Watch Series 4 with the newly developed screen increases AppleCare sales. If the clock costs more in advance, more people will assure it.
" Evidence Lab, collaborating with UBS, adds that the consumer interest for Apple Watch Series 4 is "meaningfully higher" in Japan and Hong Kong compared to last year while slightly higher & # 39; in the United States, France and the United Kingdom. The report notes that the availability of Apple Watch Series 4 has not improved much since launch, which quickly resolved for Apple Watch Series 3, which is a positive sign of demand. "
The UBS report continues to suggest that Apple has the opportunity to win more watch fans in the future, since now more than 50 percent of the surveyed buyers said they would not buy a smartwatch right now from Apple or which one any device. Apple can certainly try to win those fans, provided they do not come to a rivals smartwatch if and when they decide to take the chance and give in the idea of a hard-wearing.
The quarterly data that Apple shares the performance figures for tomorrow we will also notice will be the first three month reporting period which includes Watch Series 4, which was sold September 21. And while Apple will not talk about specific sales figures, it will be interesting to see what the company has to say so far as a prospect for the upcoming holiday quarter.
