Apple’s iPhone sales fall short of expectations (Apple Byte Extra Crunchy, Ep. 117)



Apple’s Q1 earnings show that iPhone sales are healthy, but they still missed expectations. Also, iOS 12 will delay new features in favor of focusing on performance improvements, and Mario Kart is coming! In 2019.

    Follow up to my phone call about the 200 gigs of lost data. Apple called me not long after this episode came out and said that they think they found the problem and are going to attempt a repair. They also said please make sure you have a backup of your 200 gigs before we attempt the repair. 🤨

    Im a iPhone user and tbh they might be right when they say Face ID is "safer" than Touch ID but what I don't agree with is them shoving it down our throats. They had the ability to included Touch ID but choose not to. So ill be sticking with my 7 Plus for another year and see what Android comes up with

    And you guys are worried about Apple lol. I think that Apple doesn’t care that much about stock market than pure cash flow coming in their bank accounts. In a couple of years they can buy a smaller country and all that comes within.

    Hey Brian and Beech …. I had an iPhone 6 then gave it to my mom since she wanted a smart phone. We contacted Apple to get a replacement battery. Apple got back to us and said it the battery will be available in March / April. Bad Apple??? What do you think? – Cheers Rick (S.Clara CAL)

    I still don't think the lower sales for the X has affected their bottom line. At least not yet.

    I love that Brian is always objective when it comes to Apple. Too many of these Apple tech talk shows sound like "apple fan boys/gals" who defend Apple for anything they do, or ignore their errors.

    They might have to put two Face ID sensors (one horizontal and the other vertical) on the iPad Pro

    You downplay the extra billion they made but exaggerated the 1% difference in sales lol. 14 weeks vs 13 weeks.

    I have my iPhone X and I’m screaming “Hey SIRI” and it doesn’t respond, so how would the HomePod correct this. I believe people will easily get annoyed with this to interact with SIRI on the HomePod.

    I’m getting the HomePod when I get my tax refund. Very cautious. I’m an Apple fan, I already have Apple Music, and I have no other assistants. If I’m not impressed, I’ll take it back. But I’m definitely going to give it a try

    People realizing that apple is junk especially for that price??? NO way! There is hope for humanity after all!

    I'm sure the X is a nice phone. I bought the Note 8 for $650 though. The iPhone X is not hundreds of dollars better.

    They sold like 1% percent less phones, but made way more revenue. Sounds like a win to me.
