Apple's iPhone is No. 1 in China


Apple has without a doubt gained more success than imaged with the release of the iPhone 6. The famous smartphone maker has also managed to achieve another of its goals: Apple got an overall 27.6 percent market share in China in the month of February, beating its biggest Chinese competitor, Xiaomi.

So, this means that Apple's iPhone has just become the no. 1 device in smartphone sales in urban China.

The new statistics were released by market researcher Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. The statistics indicated that for the three months that ended in February, Apple's iPhone 6 was the top selling phone in China. It managed to grow to 10.2 percent market share, from 9.5 percent.

Moreover, Apple managed to enter top three best-selling smartphones in China with two devices. This means that besides the impressive sales of iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus also did great. The iPhone 6 Plus was the third best-selling phone on this important market, behind Xiaomi's Android-based RedMi Note which took the second place.

The impressive sales of these two latest Apple phones, as well as the sales of other devices released by the famous company, placed Apple on the top spot in China's preferences.

Apple has always been extremely interested in the Chinese market, which has no less than 520 million smartphone users. This means that China is the largest smartphone market in the world. Of course, this also makes China the main interest for numerous smartphone makers, including Apple.

The tech giant has actually aggressively pursued deals with the three main mobile carriers in China, with the purpose to bring the iPhone to the country. And the Chinese just seem to love Apple's products.

"There has been a strong appetite for Apple’s products in urban China seen since the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and this has continued into Chinese New Year," a statement from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech indicated. "China Mobile’s subscribers accounted for 59 percent of the 27.6 percent volume share recorded by iOS in the latest period. Across key global markets Apple’s momentum generally continued from last month, with market share gains in all markets except the US and Japan," it added.

However, Apple did not only achieve impressive results in China. The famous iPhone marker has also managed to take 2.9 percent share from Android, in Europe.
