The stock of Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) closed at $171.08 and moved northwards by a negligible 0.28% in yesterday’s trading session. This company has over the years been known as one of those companies that are very good in terms of strategizing in business. This holiday season, records indicate that the devices of Apple accounted for about 44 percent of the tablet and smartphone activations. The most interesting point is the fact that a third of them emanated from the latest devices which include iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X. This is considering the data that was unveiled by Flurry Analytics and it is critical to point out that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6 were the ones that took up the top two slots in regards to Apple’s activations
Flurry’s new report dived deeper checking out all the aspects of the holiday season and one of the areas it was spotted paying much closer attention to were the activations carried out in the week leading to the end of Chanukah and Christmas.
A lot of the interested parties have been making a follow up in an effort to establish the reason behind the high number of activations in line with the iPhone 6 and 7.The company has come forward to attribute it to the general affordability of the older models as well as their availability in markets beyond the U.S. However, anyone that follows on such matters might be fascinated by a device such as the iPhone 6 which was re-launched by the company to most of its international resellers in the last spring. The large number of activations point to the fact that Apple is actually making great progress in business despite the numerous challenges it has been coming across over time.
An analysts following closely on the company’s most recent developments said, “Flurry once again saw two times as many app installs on Christmas Day than on an average day in December. The top types of apps being installed included Messaging & Social, Games, Music, Media & Entertainment, and Kids & Family apps.”
One thing that was rather evident was that the entire app install rates experiences their holiday bump as was anticipated.
