iPhone 8 Plus Was The Best-Selling iPhone In Q2 2018 In The U.S., Surpassing The iPhone X

According to data shared by CIRP, in the second quarter of 2018, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus is the best-selling iPhone. At the same time, Apple's iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X accounted for 54% of iPhone sales in the U.S., with iPhone 8 accounting for 13%, iPhone 8 Plus accounting for 24%, and iPhone X accounting for 17%.

The older iPhones also sold well, such as the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone 6s. This year's iPhone sales are unusual from last year, with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus being the main sales force last year of 80% of merged sales. Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus combined sales of 37%, surpassing the iPhone X.

In what is usually a quieter quarter for iPhone sales, the model breakdown is interesting, as older models persisted in popularity," said Josh Lowitz, CIRP Partner and Co-Founder. "The latest iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X models accounted for a little more than half of sales, yet last year at this time the then-latest iPhone 7 and 7 Plus accounted for over 80%.

One of the causes for the flat sales of the iPhone X is that it starts at $999 and the iPhone 8 sells for only $699. However, hopefully, this will change soon, as Apple will launch a new low-cost 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, along with a 5.8-inch second-generation iPhone X and a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus.

Nonetheless, the figure doesn't represent all iPhone customers in the U.S, considering that CIRP's numbers are aggregated from surveys that encompass just 500 customers who purchased an iPhone,
