Counterpoint Reveals Recent Sales Numbers For Smartphones, Revealing The iPhone 13 As Maintaining A Solid First Place

Data from Counterpoint reveals that Apple’s iPhone 13 continues to be the most commercially successful smartphone currently available on the market.

It really is a slow news day when yours truly has to crouch over a laptop and write about an Apple product being successful. In other news, water is wet, kids shouldn’t do drugs, and I have the approximate physique and income of Tom Cruise. All of this is completely accurate and peer-reviewed information, no need to investigate any further. Let’s instead shift our lens towards Counterpoint, and take a closer look at their numbers.

Successful or not, Apple has its work cut out in the current technological landscape. Competition’s running strong, and Apple isn’t exactly the leading brand across the world. Sure, it still turns into bigger profits because iPhones are much more expensive than the average Huawei mobile phone. However, it’s best to still keep ahead of the curve, and the company’s managing quite well. Europe may love Samsung more, Central and South Asia may have a higher preference for Huawei, but everyone buys iPhones in massive quantities across the board; and no, I’m not inviting another Apple vs. Samsung argument, let it die. All I’m here to do is write on smartphones, their success, and hopefully retire on pennies at the end of it all.

At a first glance, market data reveals that Apple products have a firm grip on the numbers. How firm, one inquires? Well, firm enough to dominate the top four places in the current marketplace. The iPhone 13 leads sales at a 5.5 percent share; the iPhone 13 Pro Max follows up with 3.4 percent; the iPhone 13 Pro takes a respectable third place position at 1.8 percent; and the iPhone 12 concludes our top four with a 1.6% share of the marketplace. All in all, Apple has seized 12.3% of the marketplace, with all other numbers split between other products, sizing up to one percent or fewer. Even then, Apple has other iPhones scattered throughout the rankings, with the iPhone SE 2022, for example, at a number seven position with a 1.4% share.

Unlike the iPhone 12, the iPhone 13 has also had the honor of maintaining a firm first place position since its launch back in September, 2021. That’s nearly a year of staying on top without any recourse; ten months of an iPhone drawing in the big bucks means that Apple’s got nothing to worry about in the smartphone marketplace just yet. Sure, things can change in a sweeping instant, but for now it’s smooth sailing.
