Just how dominant is Apple in the smartphone market? Well, despite owning just over a quarter of the global market, Apple had no fewer than eight of the top 10 best-selling smartphones in the world last year.
From my story at Forbes:
Apple sold the best-selling phone of 2022, the iPhone 13. Apple also sold the second-best selling phone of 2022, the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Apple also sold the third, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth best-selling phones of the year, according to new data from research firm Counterpoint. That’s despite three of those phones only being available for four months of the year.
It’s the first time a single brand has ever captured eight of the top 10 spots in the best-selling smartphone list, Counterpoint says.
The only other company to crack the top-10 list was Samsung. Samsung’s Galaxy A13 ranked fourth, while its Galaxy Ao3 ranked 10th.
