Even though the iPhone is sold less than smartphones from Samsung, the market leader with high demand for its foldable models, Apple is generating much more profit. This is what a new study from Counterpoint Research reports: “ In the second quarter of 2021, [l’entreprise] captured 75% of the overall operating profit of the telephony market and 40% of revenues “. However, the shipping share of models from the Cupertino company only represents 13%! A success possible thanks to a high price list for the iPhone. But Samsung ” tracks Apple in terms of revenue and profit share ” Nevertheless.
Still, Apple is ahead of Samsung by 25% in revenue. The Cupertino company widens even more the gap in terms of operating profits with 62%. Counterpoint Research Says Market Has Been Affected by the strong demand for 5G for iPhones and the fall of Huawei. A fall accompanied by the rise of other Chinese manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo. The first has also focused on the growth of shipments. But the firm believes that Apple, whose next conference is announced, will retain its status as a leader allowing it to charge high prices for its future smartphones. Note that these figures are based on the second quarter of 2021 and do not take into account the iPhone 13.
