Apple was unaffected by the drop in phone sales! 0 169

Apple iPhone

Apple has revealed that the iPhone 13 is selling very well and now market analysts have not only confirmed this but also indicated that the global market is in the doldrums. All major smartphone brands saw their sales decline in early 2022, with the exception of Apple and its iPhone.

According to information from Canalys, Apple and iPhone grew by 8% in the first quarter of 2022 if we compare sales with the same quarter of last year. And Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, and most other smartphone makers sold significantly less this quarter.

We live in a fragile time due to a lack of supply of many materials, which can facilitate the results that most brands have achieved, which is all the more commendable for Apple results.

Apple sold 56.5 million iPhones in 3 months

According to the numbers, Apple sold 56.5 million iPhones during the first three of 2022, which represents a growth of 8% compared to the 52.4 million it sold at the beginning of 2021. This means that Apple currently has a market share of 18% and is positioned in the second position of best-selling smartphones.

The first in the ranking is Samsung, which has sold 73.7 million smartphones in the first three months, which is 4% less than a year ago. In third place, we have Xiaomi, with a total of 39.2 million smartphones sold, 10 million less than a year ago. OPPO and Vivo are positioned in fourth and third positions, lowering their sales by around 30%.

The global smartphone market falls 11% in this first quarter, which is a very important fact. That Apple and the iPhone grow 8% in a market that falls 11% has many merits. Samsung seems to be handling the pressure well, probably thanks to the launch of its Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Ultra.

We have already seen analysis from Strategy Analytics, Canalys, and IDC on smartphone sales during the last quarter. Not all of them offer exactly the same numbers and estimates, but in all three reports, Apple is the only manufacturer that experienced sales growth in the last quarter.

The oil company took Apple out of its seat! 0 237

Apple

Saudi oil group Aramco pushed Apple out of the world’s largest market capitalization on Wednesday, May 11, as the Saudi giant’s shares were boosted by the recent rise in oil prices. According to Bloomberg, the market capitalization of Saudi Aramco, Saudi’s national oil company, reached $2.430 billion on Wednesday, slightly surpassing the iPhone maker, which fell to $2.371 billion.

Apple is no longer the largest company in the world!

Shares of Aramco, listed on the Riyadh Stock Exchange at the end of 2019, closed at 45.50 Saudi riyals, down 0.98% in the session but up 27% since the beginning of the year with rising prices. oil prices are favored by energy companies. In January, at the height of the Wall Street bull cycle, Apple was the first company in history to cross the $3 billion market mark.

Saudi Aramco’s rise to the forefront of the largest stock-market companies has also been made possible by the recent decline in technology stocks, which has recently hit Apple and all the big digital names. The Nasdaq has lost more than 25% since the beginning of the year due to a change in the monetary policy of the US Federal Reserve (Fed) in the face of inflation and the war in Ukraine. Apple’s title was $182 in early January, compared to $145.50 at the end of Wednesday.

Between IPOs at the end of 2019 and July 2020, the oil giant has a higher market capitalization than Apple.
