Is iPhone the best smartphone in China?

Apple emerged as the top-selling phone vendor in China in the fourth quarter, cornering a record 23% of the market, according to Counterpoint Research.

It’s the first time in six years the company has outperformed all other phone makers in the world’s largest phone market, due in part to the success of the iPhone 13 and troubles facing local rival Huawei Technologies.

The iPhone maker also took the crown globally, securing a 22% share of the global smartphone market in the fourth quarter, according to Canalys.
