Apple’s iPhone 6s was the world’s top-selling smartphone model in the second quarter of 2016, a report said on Wednesday, adding that the US giant currently accounts for two of the three top-selling smartphone models shipped worldwide.
Apple’s iPhone 6s is currently the world’s most popular smartphone. The iPhone 6s is wildly popular in dozens of countries globally, due to its attractive hardware design blended with rich features such as 4K video, large multi-touch display and fingerprint security
Total global smartphone shipments grew one per cent annually from 338.0 million units in Q2 2015 to 341.5 million in Q2 2016. Apple shipped 14.2 million units and accounted for four per cent share of all smartphones shipped worldwide in Q2 2016
“Smartphone growth is sluggish at the moment due to ongoing economic volatility worldwide, high ownership penetration in most major countries, and a lack of new innovation from device manufacturers,”
The news came as Apple is set to launch its Next-Gen Apple iPhone7 in San Francisco.
According to media the mega event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium will unveil the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus smartphones, along with the next-generation Apple Watch.
