I suppose that you can prove anything that you want with statistics, but if that is the case, then what does the results of this new survey tell you? This new survey states that 10 percent of all iPhone users will want to purchase an Apple Watch.
This survey comes from customers in the United States, United Kingdom, India, and China, and there was a similar done last September that revealed a similar result of 11 percent.
Now, you might think that ten percent is not a lot, with only 1 out of 10 planning to purchase Apple’s smartwatch. However, if you do a quick Google search for “how many iPhone users are there”, you get an answer of 44.3 million users using the Apple smartphone in the United States alone. This means that 4.43 million people will purchase the Apple smartwatch.
Now, according to my Source, UBS analyst Steven Milunovich has predicted that if Apple could sell 24 million Apple Watches in 2015, then Apple could make $3.4 billion in gross profit. So I suppose that 4.43 of 24 is about one fifth of that, so one fifth of one billion is about 680 million in profits.
That is not bad, and if that is how many people want to buy it before it is even out, just think of how many new customers Apple will have once dedicated Apple followers will be wearing the Apple Watch on their wrist. Something tells me that the winner here is still going to be Apple, because if it isn’t, the entire smartwatch market could suffer.
