Apple iPhone outpaces the rest of the industry in growth year-over-year

Ever since Apple introduced the larger-screened Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus phablet, buyers who left the iPhone for the larger screens available with Android have come running back to the fold. Apple sold a whopping 74.5 million iPhone units in the calendar fourth quarter of 2014, and the company has narrowed the gap in global smartphone market share with Samsung.

During today's media event in San Francisco, Apple CEO Tim Cook displayed a rather generic looking graph, showing that the iPhone has had a 35% increase in demand year-over-year. That compares to the 10% growth that the rest of the industry is achieving on an annual basis. 


Just the other day, we told you that the Taiwan supply chain expects Apple to ship 70 to 80 million iPhones this quarter. Apple obviously expects to continue to outpace the rest of the global smartphone industry during the remainder of this year. The big question for Apple is whether the new features and upgrades made to the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus will be enough to keep this strong momentum running through 2016. After all, since there are no changes to the sizes of the screens on the two new iPhone models, Apple is counting on the changes made on the inside of the new phones.
