iPhone 12, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max accounted for nearly 71 per cent of Apple’s smartphone sales for January
iPhone 12 was the world’s best selling smartphone in January 2021, according to data released by research firm Counterpoint. It was followed by iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. So much so so that the iPhone 12, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max accounted for nearly 71 per cent of Apple’s smartphone sales for the said month, the firm added. The iPhone 11 was the fourth-best-selling phone on that list.
Notably, the iPhone 11 was the world’s most shipped smartphone in 2020, with over 64.8 million units shipped globally.
The iPhone 12 series was launched in October last year with 5G support and updated designs with flat edges.
Almost one-third of Apple’s iPhone 12 series sale came from the US, Counterpoint said. The top-end model, iPhone 12 Pro Max was the most preferred phone in the US.
After the iPhones that dominated the smartphone market, the affordable Redmi 9A and Redmi 9 by Xiaomi took the fifth and the sixth spot in the list, respectively. They held 25 per cent of Xiaomi’s smartphone sales for that month.
For the Korean giant, Samsung, Galaxy A21s managed to secure a spot in the top 10-best-selling smartphones list with Galaxy A31 becoming a new entry.
