    iPhone has record breaking sales in US in Q1 2018.jpg

    According to a new report from Counterpoint, via 9to5 Mac, Apple sold a record number of iPhones in the US in Q1. This follows on from figures released by IDC earlier in the month that showed that Apple’s overall smartphone market share worldwide had increased by 2.8% year over year in Q1.

    Despite the fact that the smartphone market as whole in the US dropped by 11% in Q1, Apple’s share of the market grew by a record-breaking 16%, representing the highest figures that the company have ever recorded for iPhone sales in Q1.

    With such impressive sales, Apple has now well and truly wrestled the premium smartphone market away from Samsung, with the former now commanding 80% of the +$800 smartphone market.

    Counterpoint’s figures mean even more good news for Apple, which now has almost double Samsung’s US smartphone market share, with 42% compared with Samsung’s 22%.

    Samsung’s sales declined by 4% year over year in Q1, with its flagship Galaxy models achieving just 8% of the $800-and-above segment in the US, while Apple had 20% of that specific segment.

    Or, to put it another way, in Q1, Apple had six out of 10 of the top-selling smartphones in the US.

    Yet more proof, if it were needed, that the iPhone X has actually been a phenomenal success for Apple.
