In the last quarter of 2018, sales of smartphones with a bitten apple dropped by XUMUMX% in China. Both India and China are huge markets and Apple can not afford such big drops. According to the Analytics report, Apple is the fourth manufacturer of smartphones in China with 22% market share, but in the last quarter the company scored 10% decline.
The sale of iPhones in China drops by as much as 22%
Why Apple has lost so much? One of the reasons may be a dispute with Qualcomm and an unfavorable court ruling that has sold some of the iPhones in China. Another important factor is the "fight" of Donald Trump with China and blocking the sale of Huawei in the US. Of course, the saturation of the market also has a significant impact on the decline in sales. Many people, including myself, have abandoned the annual exchange of the phone for a new one. The lifespan of smartphones has lengthened because manufacturers are not able to offer anything revolutionary, which would be a must have function and would encourage purchase.
