Apple has set a new record with iPhone sales in India.
As reported by Bloomberg, sales of the iPhone grew to 2.3 million units in the fourth quarter of 2021, an increase of 34% year over year according to new data from analytics firm Counterpoint Research.
That sets a new record for Apple in the country as it tries to increase its market share while fighting against bigger brands in the region like Xiaomi and Samsung who, in comparison, are selling units to the tune of 9.3 million and 7.2 million respectively.
Neil Shah, the Mumbai-based partner and research head at Counterpoint Technology Market Research, said that the most recent quarter indicates a "turning point for Apple in India."
Bottom line: The iPhone 13 is the best iPhone for most people, with impressive new cameras and notable improvements to battery life. Without all the bells and whistles of the Pro line, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are still powerhouses that'll keep owners happy for years to come.
