  • Kantar Data Shows iPhone Sales Remained Strong Before iPhone 5S, 5C


    Despite market suspicions that iPhone sales were tanking prior to the launch of Apple's new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, the latest data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech suggests the opposite is true.

    Between June 1st and August 31st of this year, Apple's iPhone claimed just under 40% of all U.S. smartphones purchased. That's up from 34% during the same period one year earlier.

    Interestingly, today's report once again points to T-Mobile as one of the biggest winners to emerge in the iOS ecosystem this year. T-Mobile grew to 13.2% of smartphone sales in the U.S. market in the 3 month period surveyed.

    T-Mobile realized growth of 1.1%, ending the recent trend of year-on-year decline.

    “In smartphone sales,” Kantar’s data shows, “Android has retained its lead for the 3 month period ending August 2013, with a 55.1% sales share of the smartphone market. iOS follows with 39.3% sale share, an increase of 5.4% versus the same period a year ago.”

      Ok, so I'm always seeing sales percentages of iPhones vs Android phones. Yes, it seems Android is selling more phones. But, what percentage of the current cellular market is actually Android vs iPhone right now? Didn't iPhones start selling a lot more before Androids did? Maybe iPhone sales aren't as high because more people already have an iPhone. Anyone got any data on that?

      iPhone's market share in the US had never been bad. Apple's market share problem mostly exist in Asia and Europe. If the subsidized phone convention in the US ever wears off, the same "iPhone market share plummet" phenomenon will gradually show up in the US as well.

      Apple isn't too worried about US sales because there gonna sale 30 or so million period. These analysts are always spouting figures but in all reality iOS and the iPhone aren't in any danger of people not buying them period.

      that means not so stable growth though as the competitors are gaining more ground in the competition
