iPhone gaining US marketshare, slipping in China & Europe, say March-quarter numbers
U.S. iPhone share rose 6.5 percentage points year-over-year to 45.5 percent, Kantar said on Tuesday. European share fell 2 points to 20.1 percent, while China slipped 0.4 points to 21.7 percent. Apple's strong U.S. performance was credited to the iPhone XR, said to have accounted for over 1 in 10 of every smartphone sold in the country. It also propped up Apple's European sales, for instance topping all smartphones in Great Britain. In Europe as a whole the iPhone XR outsold the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max combined.
