Apple sold 20% fewer iphones in China in Q4 2018
IPhone sales in China fell about 20 percent on an annual basis in the fourth quarter of 2018. The new statistics from IDC to help us contextualize a little better, the crisis of sales (which is already partially resolved with a slight adjustment to the low price of Apple has talked a lot in this last period.
The decline in the exact sales compared to the fourth quarter of 2017 is 19.9 percent, while in the same period, Huawei has grown by 23.3 percent. Apple is, therefore, to have just 11.5 percent of the market share, while the year previous it had 12.9. Looking at the pure numbers, we speak of 14.8 million units shipped in Q4 2017 against the "just" 11.8 million in Q4 2018.
Apple loses ground in China for the third consecutive year, notes IDC. The causes of this latest drop, however, so sudden, are a bit of the usual: on the one hand there is a general slowdown in the chinese economy, on the other, the new generation of iPhone has not been perceived as an upgrade valid - especially in the light of the higher prices. As we have seen, Apple has already made their comebacks, and they seem to work.Apple iPhone XR is available online, by Phone Strike Shop to 662 euro from Unieuro to 799 euro.
