Tim Cook touts “very strong start” to iPhone 11 sales, confirming interest in Apple Card expansion
During a trip to Germany, Apple CEO Tim Cook has confirmed the company’s interest in expanding Apple Card to more countries across the world, touting iPhone 11 sales have gotten off to a “very strong start”.
Discussing the reaction to the newly released iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, Cook said within an interview with German newspaper Bild, “We could not be happier the way things are going.”, adding that “We want to offer [Apple Card] everywhere,” and that “We want to come to Germany,” although the claim was followed with warnings that the various rules and regulations relating to banking may result in a wait for the service to launch.
The Apple Post reported in June, prior to the official release of Apple Card in the United States, that Apple had reportedly began discussions with financial regulators about the future expansion of the service across Europe.
Cook’s comments of a strong start to iPhone 11 sales come after respected industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed Apple is seeing better than expected demand for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, upping his estimates for new iPhone shipments in 2019 from 65-70 million to 70-75 million units.
