Fans of Apple went crazy in September when the new iPhone was finally introduced, but first impressions might not be the best indicator of sales. It appears, according to recent wireless carrier surveys, that the older iPhone 7 is outselling the iPhone 8 across the spectrum.

The premium version of Apple’s new phone, the iPhone X, will be going on sale November 3rd. Previously, users could expect to face extremely long lines and sales would skyrocket shortly after the device was announced. It’s a different story for the tech giant this time since sales numbers have shown that the iPhone 8 is not selling as well as its predecessor the iPhone 7 did when it was first introduced.

AT&T, the second-largest carrier for wireless service, noted that there were 900,000 fewer upgrades this year than at the same time last year, indicating that there is a smaller demand for new phones. A large part of this is that the iPhone 8 doesn’t have as many new features as previous phones. Many consumers are saving their upgrades and funds to upgrade from their iPhone 5 or 6 to the iPhone 7 due to potential savings. Many users feel that the price of the iPhone 8 is not worth the cost associated with the few improvements offered.

Some of the new features coming to the iPhone 8 include wireless charging, a more powerful chipset to make apps run smoother and faster,a re-designed camera to significantly increase picture quality. Others are speculating that loyal iPhone users are sticking with the iPhone 7 until they can afford to get the cutting-edge higher-end iPhone X instead of what is seen as a basic iPhone 8. It’s not clear whether Apple expected this type of a response since this isn’t what the market is used to once a new device is announced and put up for sale.

It shouldn’t be too surprising that the $150 difference in price tag between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 is a key factor in encouraging fans to utilize iPhone repair or hold on to an earlier model while waiting for the iPhone X. It offers an OLED panel, edge-to-edge display to save on space and a facial recognition feature called Face ID to replace Touch ID. Only time will tell as users weigh the pros and cons of each device available at their fingertips.
