Apple regains smartphone lead in Q4 on iPhone 12 surge - Canalys

Thursday 28 January 2021 | 12:26 CET | News
Apple recovered its lead in the global smartphone market in the fourth quarter of 2020 thanks to record quarterly sales of iPhones, above all its 5G iPhone 12 series, according to the latest data from Canalys. The market declined marginally by 2 percent year on year in the quarter to reach 359.6 million units shipped compared to 368.6 million in Q4 2019 but the analyst predicted 2021 would see smartphone sales rebound after a 7 percent fall in 2020 as a whole.
