In an interview with CNET Apple Vice President Greg Joswiak revealed that iPhone XR has been the best seller of the latest iPhone models every day since it was released. A statement that is undoubtedly directed at recently reported that XR parts orders have been reduced due to weak demand. Joswiak refused to provide specific sales figures to CNET.
Joswiak also said that Apple would again mark World AIDS Day by giving a donation to support Red, a nonprofit founded by U2 band member Bono. Apple is a long-term supporter of Red and has participated in World AIDS Day in several ways over the years, increasing $ 160 million since its establishment in 2006.
Previously, the company has made donations based on Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, donated based on Apple Pay purchases, turned on store logos red, and worked with music artists and app developers to release specially designed Red-themed content. According to CNET, this year:
The company will donate $ 1for every Apple Pay purchase on the Apple Store, Apple.com or Apple Store app from December 1st to December 7th, and plans to turn 125 Apple Save Logos Red in honor of the day.
It looks like last year, except that this year does not include donations in app apps, and Joswiak told CNET that the App Store is not participating in any special campaigns this year. It's too bad because earlier Red-themed campaigns increased awareness of Reds efforts to fight AIDS, as well as funds to support the group's work.
