Las ventas del iPhone caen a pesar del auge del mercado de smartphones

By Ninian Carter

April 15, 2024 - Con debilitamiento de ventas en China, los envíos de iPhones de Apple cayeron 10% en el primer trimestre de 2024 – un descenso peor de lo esperado dado que la industria en general se recuperó.

Overall, smartphone sales grew 8% in Q1 2024 – the market’s best performance in years. However, Apple’s iPhone slumped 10% in the same period, triggered by poorer than expected sales in China.

Apple shipped 50.1m units, a slump on 9.6% compared to the same period last year. Samsung fell too, although a more modest 0.7%.

The biggest winners were Xiaomi, sales up 33.8%, and budget-focused Transsion which saw its sales boom by an unprecedented 84.9%.

The changes in market performance reflect China’s ban on foreign devices being permitted in the workplace, and the rise of home-grown, cheaper smartphone alternatives.

Market tracker IDC believes that as the industry recovers from the Covid years, which saw manufacturers grappling with a surfeit of unsold devices, Android devices will grow much faster than any made by Apple.
