The growth was driven by multiple online sale festivals and the continuous increase in demand from the third quarter of 2020, according to a report from the International Data Corporation (IDC). The report also shows that this is the highest ever October shipments and second highest for a month, following 23 million units in September 2020, an all-time high for a single month.
