Come back to reality dude.. Apple is done and you know it.
[deleted post]Yeah. Yeah. Said by the guy who follows certain brands who blatantly copy iOS features, Apple's design philosophies for no other reason than to copy whatever Apple does. Your favorite brands copied notch design for no apparent reason. Your favorite brands copied many iOS traits for no apparent reason than look like iOS. Ask them to make a phone that doesn't have a single thing inspired from iPhones. Later talk. BTW i am a Samsung user since last 3 years.

I don’t see why not, especially when prices are good and so is specs and hardware and also most important thing software? They have huge userbase which means they have hundred million or more users every year to upgrade. I don’t think you really understand how big Apple is if you think Apple is gone. Don’t you know that Apple userbase grows around 30 million users every year. So how something can be gone which growing all the time?
” An estimate released by Cinda Securities projects that the demand for the iPhone 12 series will likely reach 80-85 million units. It is also estimated that Apple will likely ship around 230-240 million units of the iPhone 12 models in 2021. If this happens, the iPhone 12 series will emerge as the US company’s best-selling phones ever. Currently, that record is held by the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with an estimated shipment of 224 million units.”

But the situation is that Apple is slowly dying. They live in the middle ages and don't know how to innovate anymore. They sell people garbage phones that haven't changed for years, only the chip is new and it is already beaten in 2020.
In 2021 Apple will get utterly and completely demolished and it will be a joy to watch:) I love to see greedy, arrogant, fraudulent scammers go down!

They're strongest in their home market, but even there they're losing. I wonder if the US can still keep brands like Huawei and Xiaomi out, which will erode their market share even more.
this is shocking, i didn't expect this, especially seeing that their asses are handed to them in their own backyard but I guess people are starting to wake up, you can't sell them the 'same' phone for 3 years straight and they recently came up with lies to cover their greed i really wanna see how that turn out next year.

Exact ... moreWhile I agree with you that Apple doesn't need to sell as many phones as competitors that are selling lower-tier phones Apple doesn't in any way sit on the high-end/premium market - Apple's phones are not even considered premium. Fold 2 and Note 20 Ultra are premium phones with the hardware to match. Iphones are mid-tier and Pro Max is low high-tier but not Premium. The phones don't even have HRR displays yet.
So iPhones are mostly low and mid-tier and Pro max is low high-tier but not Premium.
Also Apple won't be able to keep selling phones with those insane prices with garbage specs and hardware. In 1-3 years Samsung and the Chinese will have beaten Apple completely in all departments. Apple only got their A14 chip - they are beaten in all other categories and next year there chip will be beaten too. Then they have nothing.
So yes, Apple will be done in the phone department. You can say whatever you want but you know I'm right.

Why people keep saying this? Huawei is never been real threat for Apple. Actually Apple hardly have any competition in market, It's android companies who are fighting with each other collecting those leftovers.
Huawei been big threat for Samsung. The better Huawei did the worse Samsung did, Now when Huawei is strugling outside China, it's not Apple who is winning, it's Samsung and Xiaomi who are winning because they offer similar experience. Why would Huawei be threat to Apple when Apple offers completely different experience?

because iPhone 12 launch was later. Exact same reason why Samsung was now 1th in US.
Next Q Apple is 1th or 2th. So what's your point?
Also even if Apple would be out of top 5, it doesn't mean they are doing bad if the sales keep stayind steady. Apple goal have never been to sell as much phones as they can. Others can keep selling low and mid end phones and trying to sell as much making hardly any one money while Apple is collecting almost all the money in business by almost completely owning high-end market.
Jesvin J., 09 Nov 2020What!! LG is in 3rd position?? I thought LG was out of business! Seems like it is only in Asia!Their phone is pretty good they have the cheapest water resistant smarphone. Their old flagship are super cheap LG v40 water resistant, amoled, sd845, solid build for only $150!!!!

Apple is going down and they're going down fast. They just slipped into 4th position. Soon they're done. They will continue to make laptops, tablets, software etc. but no more phones.
[deleted post]I agree with everything you said - I hope they go down quickly. If the o*range b*aboon hadn't banned Huawei, Apple would have been demolished in 2020 and 2021.
Jesvin J., 09 Nov 2020They even slipped to fourth position in the global market!I'm so happy to hear that! They deserve it with their consumer-hostile business practices.
Apple will easily win Q4 with new phones ny a great margin
Samsung is doing well worldwide though. Peaple in US dont think logically. They just want an iPhone. Quality is guaranteed and good trade n offers will be there for existing customers. Apples main target is always existing customers upgrading.
Still cant believe garbage iPhone XR has sold more than anything else in US in last 2 years.
I am curious on how iPhone 12 mini version sells in US. If that is highly successful, Hoping for 5.5 -6 inch androids in mid-range segment
[deleted post]"Nobody want mini phone"
And yet one of my friend who been using Galaxy phones for few years just ordered iPhone mini. Main reason why he ordered he said he don't want those big phones. Also he missed iOS. I don't understand why he even switched from iPhone to android because that two or three years which he used it he wanted to go back. Glad he finally made decision and switched back to iPhone.
