Apple’s Smartphone Market Share Continues to Grow - IDC
According to the latest report from, a research firm IDC, Apple’s smartphone market share continues to increase. In the second quarter of 2015, the share reached 14.1%. If to compare this result with the year-ago quarter, we’ll notice a 3.1% growth. The number of smartphone units sold to customers worldwide increased from 35.2 million in Q2 2014 to 47.5 million in the second quarter of this year. That’s definitely a good result, I must admit.
If to speak about other vendors, they also saw an increase in sales and market share. Well, except Samsung. The South Korean tech giant occupied 21.7% of the market with 73.2 million smartphones shipped. Last year, the market share was equal to 24.8% and the number of devices shipped accounted for 74.9 million units.
In terms of market share, Huawei, Xiaomi, and Lenovo brought a total of 19% combined. Huawei sold 29.9 million, Xiaomi sold 17.9 million, Lenovo sold 16.2 million, and “others” made up another 152.5 million units.
As you see, the demand for Apple’s iPhones continues to grow. The next-generation iPhone called presumably the iPhone 6s, which is expected to be released this fall, may help the company from Cupertino to break a new sales record.
