Analyst: January 2016 iPhone sales the best since 2008

So much for the iPhone-pocalypse. Seems January’s iPhone sales were about even with December’s sales, according to estimates by Drexel Hamilton analyst Brian White — as noted by CNNMoney.

In fact, White said last month was the best January for the iPhone since 2008 -- all the way back to the original iPhone. By contrast, December was the weakest-ever month for the iPhone, according to the analyst.

White makes his forecasts by monitoring several Apple suppliers. Last month, he accurately predicted that the iPhone would have a tough final quarter of 2015, noting that suppliers cut production amid weak demand.
