Apple iPhone sales fall a fifth in China

Graphic News

February 12, 2019 -- Apple’s 2018 iPhone sales in China fell by a fifth compared with 2017, while sales of Chinese rival Huawei’s smartphones soared 23 percent, according to IDC.

Since encountering iPhone sales problems, Apple no longer breaks out detailed numbers on its smartphone shipments in its quarterly results, so this report is the clearest indicator we have on the issues Apple is facing in the Chinese market.

Overall, Apple’s smartphone shipments fell 19.9% in the final quarter of 2018, reducing its market share to 11.5%, compared to Huawei, which enjoyed growth to snatch 29% of its domestic market.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
