Apple was behind Samsung and Huawei in the latest list of top smartphone manufacturers released by IHS Markit. The report showed that Apple sold a total of 74.5 million smartphones in 2018, while Samsung sold 81.3 million smartphones and Huawei sold 66.2 million smartphones. OPPO ranked third with sales of 32.9 million smartphones, according to the report.
With the release of new iPhones each year, it is no surprise that these three companies are at the top of the list when it comes to sales. But what does this mean for Apple?
According to the report, Apple’s market share has been declining since 2016 and is now at its lowest point since 2007. While Samsung and Huawei continue to grow their market share, this decline may be a sign that consumers are moving away from Apple products as they compete against newer and more innovative smartphone models from other companies.

The report shows that smartphones are becoming more affordable, and more midrange devices are being sold than ever before.
IHS Markit released a report that shows that Samsung, Huawei, and OPPO are the top smartphone manufacturers in the world. Apple is only behind these three companies in terms of market share, but they’re still considered to be some of the best smartphone manufacturers in the world. This report is important because it’s evidence that midrange devices are becoming more popular than ever before. This means that people aren’t just buying high-end smartphones anymore; they’re also buying devices that fall between the high-end and budget ranges. This is good news for consumers because it means that there are more options available to them when it comes to choosing a new smartphone.
This is likely due to new Android OS versions that have been released in recent years.
Apple has released several new iOS versions in the past few years with new features and capabilities. However, it was not able to keep up with Samsung and Huawei in terms of mobile operating system releases. The latest Android OS version, Android 8.0 Oreo, was released in March, and it is likely that Apple was not able to release a new iOS version that supported this latest version of the Android OS in time for the market’s launch.
Samsung and Huawei are known for their fast update cycles for their mobile operating systems, and they are always releasing new versions of their OS relatively soon after Google releases the final version. This may be why Apple is lagging behind in the race to release the latest mobile operating systems.
IHS Markit predicts that the global market for smartphones
Apple and Samsung are neck-and-neck, but behind Huawei and OPPO.
IHS Markit released their annual smartphone report yesterday, and unsurprisingly, Apple and Samsung were neck-and-neck as the top two smartphone manufacturers in the world. However, Huawei and OPPO made a big push in the past year, and now rank third and fourth respectively.
One of the main reasons for this shift is that Huawei has been aggressively marketing its devices in China, where Android reigns supreme. Meanwhile, OnePlus (a Chinese company) has been able to build a sizable following with its affordable phones.
Overall, however, Apple remains the dominant player in terms of market share. The company sold more than 1.5 billion smartphones in 2017 alone, which is more than any other manufacturer.
