iPhone 13 Conquers China With 37% of Sales

Apple’s growth rate over these past few years has been nothing short of spectacular, with the trillion dollar tech juggernaut making massive inroads into China among many other emerging markets. It turns out that the latest iteration of Apple’s flagship phone, namely the iPhone 13, was the best selling smartphone in Mainland China with all things having been considered and taken into account.

Overall, the iPhone 13 comprised 37% of Apple’s total sales in China, and 6.6% of the total number of smartphone sold in China. Coming in second is yet another Apple product, namely the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which comprised 2.2% of all smartphones that were purchased in the Chinese mainland, followed by the iPhone 13 pro with 1.9%.

All in all, just under 10% of all of the smartphones that Chinese consumers bought in 2022 were made by Apple, allowing the American company to utterly dominate the top 10 list. In spite of the fact that this is the case, the next 7 companies in this list are all Chinese in origin.

The Honor X30 came in 4th with a 1.8% share, followed by the Oppo A56 5G with 1.7%. Honor entered the again with its Play 30 Plus in sixth place with a 1.6% share which was almost equaled by the Y33s 5G made by Vivo. The Honor 60 received a 1.5% share, the VivoY76s came in 9th place with 1.4%, followed by the Honor Play 20 with just under 1.4%.

Honor’s 6.3% overall share of Chinese smartphone sales is impressive, but it still falls well short of Apple. This seems to indicate that Apple is starting to maintain a firm grip on the Chinese market, since barely any Chinese company is able to compete with it in terms of pure sales.

This is interesting because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up indicating a shift in Chinese purchasing habits. Flagship phones are becoming more prominent, and Apple as always been a major player in that arena. This just goes to show that Apple still has what it takes to dominate the global premium smartphone industry.
