The big story for Apple in 2018, at least in the short term, was the iPhone Xs Max, which was launched just over a year ago and launched to rave reviews.
Its $1,300 premium over the iPhone 7 Plus, and its $10/month premium over Apple’s “special edition” iPhone XS, meant that Apple had a very strong foothold in the premium smartphone market.
And as the years went by, its presence in the market became increasingly evident.
The company was once the king of the premium smartphones, and it’s not likely to go anywhere anytime soon.
But while Apple has been a giant in the smartphone market, it has struggled in 2018.
And with the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus coming out this month, the company’s dominance may soon be coming to an end.
And what’s more, Apple is also losing market share in the most recent report from the research firm Gartner.
“We’ve lost market share over the past year in a lot of key categories,” Steve Jobs told a gathering of his closest associates in a May 2017 interview.
Jobs made the comment in the aftermath of Apple’s biggest failure since the iPhone 8 was released. “
And I don’t expect us to have another repeat performance at the beginning of 2020.”

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were both the first handsets to be mass-marketed with a 12-megapixel camera and the new iPhone X was released last October.
Both smartphones were extremely popular.
In September, the iPhone 6s was the most-sold smartphone in the world, and by November, the smartphone was the fourth-most-popular in the US.
But the iPhone 10s was released in late November and was a huge disappointment.
“We had a massive year of growth in 2018,” said John Gruber, an analyst at Gartners.
“But what’s not obvious is that we didn’t sustain it in 2019.” “
Gruber noted that the iPhone 11s, released in March 2019, was “an extremely well-received phone” that didn’t make the top 10 most-ordered smartphones of 2018. “

“That’s because we didn.
And we had the iPhone 12 in March.
So, why is Apple’s market share so low? “
So the question is what’s next for Apple, and whether or not we have to do this again.”
So, why is Apple’s market share so low?
There are a couple of reasons.
First, the US is a very diverse market.
In fact, it’s the world’s most diverse smartphone market according to Gartener, which also reports on the popularity of Android smartphones in the UK.
Apple’s US market share is around 20%.
The iPhone 7 was the first to be sold in the United States and in 2018 was the only iPhone to sell well in the country.
So while Apple’s presence in US markets has shrunk, the dominance of its smartphone brand is still very strong.
“There are a lot more people in the U.S. who own an iPhone than there are in the EU,” said David DeCastro, a partner at consulting firm GfK.
It’s a trend that’s continued into the 21st century.
While Android phones are growing in popularity in many countries around the world (see: China), they still lag behind the iPhone’s dominance in the USA.
And while Apple is still selling a lot in the “premium” smartphone market that it pioneered in the 1990s, the premium segment is getting smaller and smaller.
Apple’s new premium iPhones are currently available in at least a handful of US cities (see top 5 US cities for iPhone 9, 10, 11), but DeCasto said that Apple is likely to see that number decline by the end of 2019.
What about the UK?
There is a trend of the UK switching to a “premier” model of smartphone every year.
According to the latest Garten report, the UK’s smartphone market is growing at a rate of around 30% per year.
The top 10 UK smartphone brands, according to this report, are: Apple, LG, Samsung, Huawei, Microsoft, Motorola, Sony, HTC, Sony Ericsson, Vivo, Alcatel, Motorola Mobility, Apple Pay, and Virgin Media.
The UK is still the most dominant market in the European Union for smartphone sales, but Decastro said that is no longer the case.
For example, in the first half of 2019, Samsung led the way with the UK smartphone market with sales of 10 million smartphones, followed by
