The media are also getting excited about the queues in Beijing or Shanghai for the release of new smartphones… In India this time, Apple is expected to gain a larger share of the local market with its iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max devices at the high end. The group could reach 7% of smartphone sales in India over the period from July to December, compared to 5% in the first half of 2023. This is at least what the Reuters agency indicates, citing data shared exclusively by the Counterpoint firm.
