The iPhone 12 was the world’s best-selling 5G smartphone model in October despite a delayed launch, which resulted in only two weeks of sales during the month, according to Counterpoint Research.
The iPhone 12 Pro, which launched alongside the iPhone 12, was the second best-selling 5G model for the month, according to the research group’s monthly Market Pulse Service. The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro together captured close to one-fourth of the total 5G smartphone sales in October.
The iPhone 12 also entered the top 10 bestseller list of 5G devices for January-October 2020, attaining the seventh position. This is a “big achievement, considering the new iPhone series was available for only two weeks in October,” according to Counterpoint Research.
