In a news report by USA Today, an Analyst from GBH Insights named Daniel Ives compiled a chart that shows the tech products sold:
Top tech products of 2017
Top tech products of 2017

1. Apple iPhone having sold 233 Million
2. Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 smartphones: 33 Million
3. Amazon Echo Dot connected Speaker: 24 Million
4. Apple Watch: 20 Million
5. Nintendo Switch video game console: 15 Million

Apple took a huge risk by releasing three new iPhones for 2017: The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus had minor upgrades from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. This resulted in the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus being overshadowed by the looming arrival of the bigger brother, the iPhone X (roman numeral ten) which sold out and was listed at eBay for thousands of dollars.

In spite of this, Apple sold more iPhones this 2017 but at a lesser amount compared to when the iPhone 6 was released in 2015. At the time, the iPhone 6 brought a redesign of larger sized iPhone to consumers that captivated the public.

Ives thinks Apple will have an even bigger 2018, with a spring update to its compact SE iPhone and more new phones in the fall. Out of the billion-plus consumer base of the iPhone, "350 million of them will upgrade next year," says Ives. 

Analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moorhead Insights sees Apple lowering prices on non-iPhone X styled phones and says that will boost sales. "Anything that doesn't have edge-to-edge display will go down in price," he adds.
