The iPhone 8 is having a rough time in China

Xiaomi and Apple round up the top 5 this quarter.

Back at home, things do not look that vivid for Apple as only 16% of the iPhone buyers in the United States opted for the iPhone 8, claimed a recent report from Consumer Intelligence research partners. 12 months later the company registered 11 million units.

The tech world is eagerly waiting for the iPhone X launch on November 3 - and that outsized focus has seemingly turned Apple's other fall 2017 release, the iPhone 8, into the ugly little sibling in the smartphone ecosystem.

APPLE Inc's sales in the Chinese domestic smartphone market jumped 40 percent year on year in the third quarter, ending six consecutive quarters of decline in the world's biggest smartphone market, researcher Canalys said in a report yesterday.

In past years we have seen an overwhelming circumstance of Apple's iPhone, as Android's premium cell phone producers like Samsung, Huawei, Oneplus and Xiaomi have had its spot as a decent substitution.

Firstly to Apple, which Canalys believes is not out of trouble in China.

"Apple is unlikely to sustain this growth in Q4", Canalys' Mo Jia said in a statement. He stated that the high sell-in caters to the pent-up demand of iPhone upgraders in the absence of the iPhone X. Also, price cuts on previous generation iPhones after announcing the iPhone 8 have also helped.

Apple has been working remarkably to keep up its quarterly deals, the entire year. However, warns the firm, that growth could be short-lived despite excitement about the iPhone X ...

On Thursday Apple will report their Fiscal Q4 2017 Financials and will hold their conference call at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET.
