A new CIRP report says 56% of Q1 iPhone sales were of the iPhone 12 as demand continues to skyrocket.
From the report:
CIRP's Josh Lowitz notes that in Q1, iPhone 12 models, in particular, the most expensive ones "garnered a significant share of sales". Despite not being available the entire quarter, "model mix and pricing" saw the US-WARP rise to $873, the highest level in ten years.
Apple's iPhone 12 and 12 Pro Max snagged 17% of iPhone sales each, with the 12 Pro reportedly right behind.
Interestingly, for all models, CIRP says that around half of buyers upgraded from the base storage, further boosting the average sale price.
In a separate nod to services, CIRP says Apple "improved penetration" for paid iCloud storage, Apple TV, and Apple Music:
The results are based on a survey of 500 US Apple customers who bought an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch between October and December of 2020.
