CIRP: Apple tops US sales charts in Q1, Samsung a close second

Michail, 18 April 2019

Despite poor iPhone sales throughout 2018, Apple seems to doing quite well in its home market. According to data from CIRP (Consumer Intelligence Research Partners), iPhones accounted for 36% of US smartphones activations during Q1 of 2019, which gave Apple a slight lead over Samsung with its 34%. Next in line are LG and Motorola with 11 and 10% respectively.

The new data suggests that Apple is regaining US market share after a mediocre 2018 but is still far away from the dominance it held during Q1 of 2016 and 2017 when it peaked at 40% market share. The new results should also reflect better in financial terms for Apple despite slumping sales in European, Japanese and Chinese markets.

Analysts predict a 5% year on year increase in US iPhone revenues, offsetting lowered sales figures in foreign markets.

As a whole, Android devices still hold a 64% share of all device activations for the period while iOS accounted for 34%.

That will never happen. Mark my word. If iOS dies, Google would dominate smartphone market. There would be no competition. Which is bad for consumers.

and if Huawei was not shunned then Apples figures would be even poorer.
