The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were already declared ‘obsolete‘ by many due to the iPhone X, which is arguably the biggest iPhone upgrade in years. A large section of potential buyers is holding out for the iPhone X rather than buying the iPhone 8, which is only a minor upgrade over its predecessor. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus look like the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, though they come with wireless charging (which sucks, by the way), a faster processor, and an improved camera. Surprisingly, most people unwilling to shell out $1,000 for the iPhone X want to buy iPhone 7 rather than the iPhone 8.

Why are more people opting to buy iPhone 7?

It indicates that consumers don’t find the iPhone 8 a worthy upgrade. Traditionally, the newly launched iPhones see a huge demand, selling out within days after launch. However, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus sales have been weaker than in previous years due to the imminent release of the iPhone X. Another factor hurting the iPhone 8 sales is that people are eager to buy iPhone 7. The last year’s model is doing better than the latest model, according to an analyst.
