Apple iPhone 11 demand better than expected, new colour options a highlight: Report

Reportedly, the iPhone 11 Pro more in demand in the US, while China is more interested in the iPhone 11.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo released a report days after the iPhone pre-orders went live, wherein he says that the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro order demand is ahead of expectations.

First reported by 9To5Mac, Kuo's predictions are largely based off of Apple’s online shipping estimates. He believes that Apple's strong demands can be attributed to the new midnight green and purple colour options in the new iPhones. He also warns that production problems of the glass for the midnight green phone means availability of that model is currently constrained.

iPhone 11 comes in six difference colour variants.
