According to a new report, Apple could see strong sales in the second half this year. This could allow it to capture one-third global 5G smartphone shipment in 2021.
Counterpoint Market Research claims that the iPhone 12 and the upcoming iPhone 13 series are expected to increase global 5G shipments by nearly 200 million units. This will help to grow 2021 total shipment to 605 millions in the fourth quarter.
According to market research firm, Apple’s iPhone 12 was responsible for 24% of global 5G smartphone sales last year, despite its late October launch.”
Counterpoint stated that Apple will take 33% of global 5G shipments this year due to an earlier launch of the iPhone 13 and strong demand for iOS.
According to the report, the US will continue to be the largest shipment driver worldwide.
Jeff Fieldhack, Research Director North America believes that “even without amust-have” specs, there will still be a huge appetite to upgrade because the iOS base in the US is outdated.
The Cupertino-based tech company will officially unveil the iPhone 13 at this year’s September Apple Event.
The iPhone 13 lineup could mirror the iPhone 12 family, featuring a 5.4-inch iPhone 13 Mini and 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro, as well as a 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max and a 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro.
