New data from Counterpoint Research today shows just how dominant the iPhone
lineup really is. According to the data, not only was the iPhone 13 the

The best-selling smartphones of 2022
Counterpoint Research says that the iPhone 13 accounted for 28% of all
iPhone sales in 20222 and 5% of the total global smartphone sales in 2022.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max follows in second place, with 2.6% of total smartphone
sales. The top five is rounded out by the iPhone 14 Pro Max in third, the
Samsung Galaxy A13 in fourth, and the iPhone 13 Pro in fifth.

Apple's iPhone 13 was the best-selling smartphone of 2022, contributing 28%
of iPhone sales. It was the best-selling smartphone in major markets such as
China, US, UK, Germany and France. Further, the iPhone 13 remained the
number one smartphone each month from its launch in September 2021 till
August 2022. Price cuts after the iPhone 14 series' launch further drove the
iPhone 13 volumes in developing markets. The iPhone 13 sales were two times
more than that of the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the second best-selling smartphone
in 2022.

The inclusion of the iPhone 14 Pro Max in the top five is particularly

model for September, October and November of 2022. The iPhone 14 Pro Max
sales were led by early adopters and those upgrading to a higher iPhone
