Apparently, it turns out that the first smartphone market is in decline. This consensus of many specialized analysts, some of whom you may know, is fueled by several key factors such as a peak in contaminations at COVID-19 or by component shortages in Asia. What new signed figures confirm Counterpointbut not only.
Indeed, on the occasion of a new detailed report on the situation published recently, the firm estimates that iPhone supply concerns have also slowed their progress against the competition, at least at the end of 2021. Thus, while the last high-end models of the Apple were at the limit of the sold out in October, Android brands had about six weeks of headroom before the Galaxy S22 was launched right after. The arrival of the third generation iPhone SE will then have allowed Apple to regain ground. Judge for yourself:
Downsizing this summer?
According to Counterpoint, Apple also continues to offer the best delivery times to customers (the figures relate to the American market). However, the quantities of available devices seem to be down for the month of June, just like on Android where the Galaxy A13 5G would represent a large share of all orders in the United States. This mobile has the advantage of being particularly affordable: it can be found around 150 euros at retailers. Its main assets are an impressive 5,000 mAh battery, a large 6.5-inch screen and a 50 MP wide-angle sensor.
The good news, however, is thatApple may have managed to stabilize its inventories in the second quarter 2022 if compared to the same period the previous year. In theory, no delay would therefore have been accumulated in this range but remember that these are of course only estimates. And you, did you receive your iPhone 13 on time in the spring?

Watch out for lockdowns!
Only the establishment of additional quarantines in the countries affected by the return of contagions to the coronavirus therefore seems to worry about the future of iPhone sales in Europe. We bet that the power in place will be able to draw on the achievements of the previous restrictions, the negative impact of which on the economy is more than decried internationally.
