The iphone case
is a big market. Almost nine-tenths of the owners will put their expensive mobile phones in the phone shell. US market analyst NPD says the number of people using a mobile phone shell accounts for 87%.
GfK, a research group, said last year that British iphone users had bought 5 million phone shells, including a mobile phone case with wooden keys and plastic casings with case Kindston patterns. In the United States, the iphone has more users, and the market for handset accessories is broader. In the quarter before Christmas, mobile phone accessories accounted for 40% to 60% of the year.
The decorative shell of the phone began 15 years ago when Nokia models started, but the phone shell turned into a lucrative industry from Apple smartphones. Each iphone shell sells an average of 13.4 pounds, a 67 million-pound deal in the UK alone. But with Google Android phones more, particularly Samsung mobile phones. These owners will also buy mobile phone accessories.
Only about two-thirds of Samsung's mobile phone owners buy mobile phones, NPD found. In southern China's Shenzhen, Foxconn plants are responsible for making iphones.
For accessory manufacturers, a new phone model is worth as much as £ thousands of. The new handsets were produced at the end of this summer, and although Foxconn has been strict in preventing workers from leaking relevant data, it is inevitable that they will leak out. A few weeks before Cook announced the release of the new iphone, a video of the model, screen and components of "upcoming iphones" was circulated online.
Each video is also sold at a price of thousands of pounds to the handset manufacturer or accessory manufacturer. About 65% of mobile phones are sold to iphone owners, 30% to Samsung owners and 5% to other mobile phones, according to co-founder Kevin Faro of Mota, a handset-shell manufacturing company. Steve Mutram, head of operations at Olloclip, which makes the pin-camera, said: "The iphone's users tend to be richer, and using a phone shell is an insurance strategy (to prevent the phone from falling off)."
” Olloclip, founded by Patrick Neill in May 2011, now has a yearly annual income of $12 million trillion. Patrick Onell said: "If they can give us the information in advance, we are very fast." "He spent 70,000 dollars to buy a 3D printer, was considered a crazy move, but now, see the company's engineers completely redesign the pin camera system, and accurate to a fraction mm, finally admitted that it is clever."
” The new iphone will be able to take multiple angles or a standard back shot, which can be done with multiple angles or close-ups, while also preventing dithering.
With the help of the 3D printer, each redesign can be done in a matter of hours, without having to go to the factory to see the model and save valuable time. Neill said: "When IPhone6 appears, best buys a ' new iphones ' phone shell. Before the iphone 4s was released in October 2011, rumors were saying it would have a ' teardrop ' shape. There is a mobile phone shell company made 50,000 mobile phone shell that day, the results are all set aside; IPhone6 plus appeared, the same tragedy occurred. Some people say in the online video that IPhone6 plus may be curved because they are too thin. Mobile phone shell manufacturers hastened to build a reinforced mobile phone shell, but when the Shenzhen factory was busy doing the reinforcement of the shell, Apple said the sale of 10 million handsets, only nine owners complained that the fuselage is too thin. These hardened phone case
will soon be cheap, and they should look like the iphone 4s's "teardrop" phone shell as quickly as it can.
