Finally good news for Apple ! Apple brand can welcome new data released by research firm Counterpoint, who claims thatiPhone XR was the top-selling smartphone in the United States in January 2019. If you are an avid reader of World is Small, you probably already know that iPhone sales fell sharply in the last quarter of 2018. Obviously, the Cupertino company has reversed the trend.
The new cheapest iPhone of 2019 has indeed stood out from its competitors thanks to its relatively low price (859 € at its release). Overall, smartphone sales in the United States fell for the fourteenth consecutive month, down 2.7% from January 2018. Since November 2017, smartphones have not seen an increase in sales on the American continent.
In January 2019, therefore, the iPhone XR outperforms the iPhone XS Max, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the iPhone XS and the Galaxy S9. In the American ranking of the best selling manufacturers, the apple brand remains the mistress, since it occupies the first place, ahead of Samsung, Motorola (!), LG and ZTE. Samsung is the manufacturer that has lost the most ground.
