It is grave news for the Apple company that the sales of the iPhone are declining and their market shares also fell. Gartner who is the analyst told that the iPhone sales had suffered a lot in 2018 and previously they sold 64 Million iPhones in 2017. Talking about the shares of the global market it also fell from 17.9% to 15.8%, and this is not a good signal at all as the Chinese companies are taking over the market. Huawei also raised its market value and came to 14.8% from 10.8%.
Gartner said “compelling high-price and midprice smartphone alternatives from Chinese vendors” but loyal buyers who are “delaying upgrades as they wait for more innovative smartphones.” Also, he told that innovation is the main thing where Apple lacks now and also lost its first place in the world’s innovative companies and came on the 17th place. This is the clear danger for the company, and present danger is the Qualcomm as Qualcomm said from now it would be imposing the ban over the sale of iPhone in the US because of patents infringements. Qualcomm won the sales injunction on the iPhone 7 as well as iPhone 8 in Germany.
“Apple said that it would need six months to verify that the fix will satisfy regulators and to sell its existing [infringing] inventory,” reports Reuters. “Apple asked the full commission to delay any possible import ban by that long if the commission reverses the judge’s decisions.” Samsung is also set with the launch of new Galaxy models; Apple again will launch the iPhone which will be of the same appearance as the previous models. However, the apple fans now want some innovation and change in the looks of the iPhone then only the sales will be increasing, and Apple will come out of this mess.
