Although Apple has announced record sales for iPhone 5 and sales increased year over year by 7%, the smartphone market grew by 36%, which means that the iPhone actually lost ground, and the market share actually went from 23% last year to just 17% this year.
In addition, according to its own estimates of Apple, it is expected to be sold 25 million iPhone units this quarter, but do not forget that the market will continue to rise by about 36%, and if Apple does not exceed expectations, it means that the market share will reach 11.7%.
If this current trend continues, Apple could even reach below 10% by year-end, but probably will not stay there too long since it will launch iPhone 5S; the downside is that the impact on sales may not be as predicted since being an intermediate iPhone, could not affect sales as much as a brand new device.
It is increasingly apparent that the strategy of selling high end phones and nothing to cover the remaining niches no longer works, since customers prefer an Android or Windows Phone terminal that fits in their budget at the expense of an iPhone 4S or 4.
The question that imposes itself is if the market strength and desire to remain where they are will compel Apple to launch a budget iPhone, or will they stick to their rigid policy and risk their future as a top phone manufacturer?
