Apple is undeniably having a hard time … After all, in addition to the iPhone sales are far below expectations, it has lost the title of the most innovative company in the world.
After launching the iPhone X and the AirPods, Apple was able to reach number one on the annual list of ‘Fast Company’ in 2018
But in 2019, it was replaced by Meituan Dianping, a company that focuses on the production of applications, which “improve the speed and efficiency in booking and delivering services such as hotels, movies, and food .”
In short, according to Amy Farley of Fast Company, Apple lost its position because “their new handsets have nothing innovative, and sales were far short of expected.”
However, Amy has stated that the SoC A12 Bionic is a true beast of processing. Still, although the processor is extremely powerful, the mobile phones it manages, have not brought anything new to the market.
Caution Samsung and Apple, the Chinese are ready to attack! – The smartphone market continues to go through a phase of stagnation, as the report reports from the last quarter of 2018 show. After all, both Samsung and Apple lost market share to China’s Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo.
Therefore, according to Gartner data. Samsung fell from 20.9 percent to 19 percent, while Apple dropped from 14 percent to 13.4 percent.
Although Samsung’s downturn is the most significant, Apple’s turn out to be the most impressive! Given all the difficulties that the company is having in China … That much is due to the commercial war that keeps on continuing.
Meanwhile, Chinese companies are booming, with Huawei making the biggest increase (3.2%) in 2018.
The story was pretty similar in the fourth quarter of the year, when Apple saw the biggest decline since 2016. With 64.5 million units it put on the market, it meant a year-over-year decline of 11.8%.
