Apple introduced the new iPhone 14 series this month. Meanwhile, Samsung is at threat as these smartphones, especially the iPhone 14 Pro, are seeing strong sales, which could help Apple grab 60% flagship smartphone market.
According to a new information by DigiTimes, Apple’s market share for high-end phones, priced above $500, has increased to 55% in the off-season and 60% in the peak season this year. The new iPhone 14 Pro sales could further idealize their peak season share if the company manages to maintain its current growth.
Furthermore, Apple also wants to stay on top and in doing so it has asked Foxconn, its primary iPhone assembler, to shift some iPhone 14 production capacity to Pro models to meet strong demand. But reportedly, the makers in Apple’s supply chain haven’t received order cuts for any models.
On the official website, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are estimated to ship in weeks in multiple configurations. In comparison, the base model – iPhone 14 sales are slightly low. The devices are available to order from Apple’s website as well as in stores.
Moving ahead, Apple iPhone 13 Pro models were said to have recorded outstanding long-tail sales after the first wave of pre-orders last year. Apple iPhone’s Pro models have become a mainstream upgrade for iPhone fans and that’s because of significant specs upgrade.
Samsung abandons Fold 4, Flip 4 sales ambitions:

Still, the new Galaxy smartphones didn’t live up to Samsung’s expectations to reach around 15 million unit sales by the end of this, year. The company has reportedly left its ambitions and cut Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 shipments target to 8 million only.
