The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been on the market for nearly three months. Despite this, both handsets remain in high demand. In fact, Apple is still finding it difficult to keep up with demand for certain models, according to investment firm Canaccord Genuity (via AppleInsider).
In a note to investors, the firm says that supply constraints remain for the higher-capacity iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. These include the 64- and 128-gigabyte models.
According to analyst Michael Walkley, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 was the top-selling handset at AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile in November. In second place at all four carriers was the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. The recently introduced Samsung Galaxy Note 4 came in third.
According to the report:
A survey of 75 AT&T stores conducted by Canaccord Genuity on Nov. 26 found that 44 percent had the 16-gigabyte iPhone 6 in stock, but just 8 percent had the 64-gigabyte model, and none had it in a 128-gigabyte capacity.
Store representatives for all four carriers indicated that the 64-gigabyte capacity has proven extremely popular with consumers. Those models are said to remain constrained, with wait times stretching as long as a few weeks depending on the carrier and iPhone model.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus arrived in stores on Sept. 19.
