iPhone XR becomes the world’s best-selling smartphone for the fourth consecutive quarter

According to Counterpoint Research, the iPhone XR is the best-selling smartphone in the third quarter of 2019, which means that it has been the best-selling model in each quarter so far this year.

The iPhone XR was released in the middle of the fourth quarter of 2018, so it didn’t top the list in the quarter, but it has since dominated the list, easily defeating the iPhone 11. According to data from Counterpoint Research’s Market Pulse, the iPhone XR was the world’s best-selling model in the third quarter of 2019, occupying a 3% market share. In fact, except for the release quarter in September 2018, the iPhone XR has been the highest-selling model in the world each quarter since the fourth quarter of 2018. The iPhone XR alone contributed more than a quarter of Apple’s total sales in the quarter, making it Apple’s best-selling model in all regions. Apple also adjusted the price of the iPhone XR in China and several other markets, which helped maintain strong demand this quarter. The iPhone 11 also entered the top ten in the release quarter.

The top ten best-selling smartphones in the third quarter included two iPhones, three low-end Samsung models, and a range of Chinese brands:

  • iPhone XR
  • Samsung Galaxy A10
  • Samsung Galaxy A50
