Apple has come a long way since last year, which is quite obvious going by the sales figures of the previous quarters. A new report from Strategy Analytics now suggests that Apple’s marketshare surged by 2.7% since the same period last year. This is going by the Q2 figures posted by Apple, so clearly the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus have done wonders for the iPhone marketshare.
Samsung surprisingly has lost marketshare compared to Q2 2014, where it had 22.3% hold of the market, it now has just 20.5% of the market. Other Android players like Huawei and Xiaomi have seen a rise in marketshare however, while Windows Phone lost big with a slip of 5.4% compared to last year.
In terms of device shipments, Apple is shown to have shipped 12.3 million more units compared to the same period last year, which gives us a very good idea about how successful the two new iPhones have been for the company. Expect the marketshare to increase further with the two new models of the iPhone scheduled for a release in September.
