Apple outperforms most smartphone brands as the iPhone continues to gain share in the U.S.

According to preliminary data from Counterpoint Research’s 2024 US Weekly Sell-Through Tracker, January smartphone sales in the U.S. declined by 10% year-over-year (YoY) with the trend likely to continue for the full month.

This combination is enabling Apple to maintain stability in a market experiencing double-digit declines,” says Jeff Fieldhack, Counterpoint research director for the U.S. “Good for share gains and great for the iOS installed base.
