Apple, according to preliminary estimates by analysts from Counterpoint Technology Market Research, is close to setting a new record for smartphone sales in the last quarter of the year.
It is noted that at the end of October-November, a decrease in iPhone shipments was recorded compared to the same months of 2019. However, the decline is insignificant — it is calculated in single percentages.
Experts emphasize that the observed picture is due to the fact that this year the release of the iPhone 12 was delayed by several weeks compared to the release date of the iPhone 11 last year. However, there is currently a sharp increase in demand for Apple smartphones compared to the results of 2019.
Thus, experts at Counterpoint Technology Market Research believe that according to the results of December and the last quarter of the calendar year (which coincides with the first quarter of Apple’s fiscal year), iPhone sales will be a record high. Growth in quarterly deliveries is projected at 21% you.
We also add that the iPhone 12 has already become the world’s best-selling 5G smartphone — and that’s just two weeks after it hit the market.
