Canalys analysts have released a new report in which they noted that Apple managed to win the first place in the list of suppliers of smartphones to the Chinese market. It is interesting that Tim Cook's company achieved such a result for the first time since the appearance of its devices in the Middle Kingdom.
Canalys found that the Chinese smartphone market grew quite strongly in the fourth quarter of 2014. At the same time, experts note that the appearance of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which also provided Apple with the first place in the Chinese market, had a significant impact on the situation.
Following the Cupertinians, Xiaomi, Samsung and Huawei are on the list of leaders in smartphone sales. For Apple, this is a very indicative result, given the fact that the cost of "apple" smartphones is unusually high for the Chinese market. Canalys believes that it was the enlarged screens of new smartphones and support for LTE that allowed the American company to increase the popularity of its devices in the Middle Kingdom.
It is also worth noting that Samsung is still facing certain challenges in the Chinese market. So, back in the second quarter of 2014, Xiaomi bypassed Samsung, which until that time was called the undoubted leader. Canalys is not talking about the exact number of smartphones Apple has shipped to China. Nevertheless, according to the official data of the Cupertinians, in the fourth quarter of 2014, the Chinese segment brought the corporation a profit of $ 16.1 billion.
