iPhone 13, the best-selling smartphone in the first quarter

Unsurprisingly, the latest iPhone, the thirteenth in the name, is already set to dominate 2022, as its predecessors have done in previous years.

According to figures from IDC, the best-selling smartphone in the world in the first quarter of 2022 is the iPhone 13, although it was only released a few months ago and the shortage of electronic components does not facilitate its complicated production.

iPhone 13 leading sales in 2022, as in 2021 and 2020?

A very good start that augurs for 2022 the role of sales leader for the latest iPhone, knowing that the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 were respectively the champions of 2020 and 2021. For this first quarter, the second place is occupied by the iPhone 13 Pro Max, and the fourth by the iPhone 13 Pro. No iPhone 13 mini in the Top 5, confirming Apple's idea of discontinuing the reduced-size model in the range from the iPhone 14.

Samsung completes the Top 5 of the smartphone market

Samsung is in third and fifth place, but not with premium models (like the Galaxy S, or Fold). Korea's most popular smartphones are indeed the entry-level and mid-range models Galaxy A12 and Galaxy A32.
