Samsung topped the list with 24 percent market share, followed by Apple and Xiaomi, which remained in third place with 13 percent. OPPO and Vivo rounded out the top five with 10% and 8% share respectively.

At that time, apple chose to increase the number of iPhone 13 Pro units by 10 million in the second quarter, even as the Android camp was cutting orders. In addition to meeting increased orders, it is also preparing for the launch of the new iPhone 14 in the second half of the year, according to A report by Financial Union. Apple plans to significantly ramp up production of the iPhone 13 Pro line during the off-season, largely because of strong sales of the iPhone 13 Pro line and a relative shortage of iPhone 13 Pro supplies.
