US iPhone sales last quarter jumped by 16% as the rest of the market fell by 11%
The iPhone X may not have helped Apple shatter any quarterly sales records, but it's still performing incredibly well in the market place. As Tim Cook noted during Apple's recent earnings conference call, Apple's flagship iPhone has been the best-selling iPhone model every single week since the device first hit store shelves this past November. All in all, the success Apple has enjoyed with the iPhone X is even more impressive given the device's rather hefty $999 entry price.
In light of that, a new report from Counterpoint Research reveals that Apple during the first quarter of 2018 saw iPhone sales in the United States jump by 16%. In stark contrast, overall smartphone sales in the U.S. fell by 11%. The takeaway here is significant: even in a market where smartphone sales are slumping, Apple still manages to see an uptick in year-over-year iPhone sales.
