In eight countries, iPhone X already amounts to over 2% of the iPhone active installed base just three weeks after iPhone X’s first availability. IHS Markit is able to use its unique measurement of active installed base data to provide very early insights on how the iPhone X is performing, well in advance of the availability of shipment data. IHS Markit forecasts that Apple will have its best ever year for iPhone as each of the next the next four quarters will see increases year on year in iPhone shipment volumes.
