While Samsung continues to hold the title of the world’s largest smartphone maker, Apple
still has a solid grip on the U.S. market. Apple recently hit a new milestone in the U.S. market, beating every other Android model.
According to Sammobile
, an industry analyst firm Counterpoint Research report shows that Apple’s iPhone has surpassed 50 percent of the U.S. market, with about 150 Android devices taking up the rest, including Samsung’s Galaxy lineup.
Since its launch in 2007, the market share of the iPhone product line has exceeded 50% for the first time, surpassing the Android
platform. This data reflects the strength of the iPhone product line in the past two years to a certain extent. It’s a milestone that belongs to Apple, and there’s enough reason to celebrate.
To be precise, the statistic is specifically for “active users,” meaning that more than 50 percent of smartphone owners in the U.S. are using iPhones, not just 2022 shipments. As for the proportion of each iPhone model, this is not yet clear. With the recent launch of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, Samsung’s high-end products for 2022 have all been released, but Apple’s next-generation iPhone 14 series is gaining momentum.
Perhaps Samsung is comforted by recent reports that Samsung, LG, and BOE will supply Apple with panels for the iPhone 14 series, with Samsung taking the largest order of the three, accounting for 82% of the orders.
