Apple's iPhones 5S and iPhone 5C took a 76% share of the new smartphones that got sold in Japan during last month of October. Out of these 76% share of new iPhones, a 61% share got sold by Japan's largest mobile operator, NTT DoCoMo.
Apple’s new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C have a high demand in Japan. And the second best market regarding iPhone sales is most probably Japan as well. The United States happens to be the best market for Apple regarding the sale of its iPhones. Meanwhile, China is also on its way towards becoming the biggest iPhone market on a global level.
Apple has always been famous in the Japanese smartphone market even though it has not taken the country's largest carrier on board. Apple has sold a large number of iPhones in Japan in the past few years. But this year, Apple has collaborated with Japan's largest mobile carrier, NTT DoCoMo and launched its new iPhones. This collaboration has raked in revenue that was never earned before by Apple.
According to Kantar World Panel, Apple's iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C sales have left behind the sales of all other new smart phones last month. Apple's new iPhones take a 76% share of new smart phones sold this October in Japan. And a majority of these iPhone devices were sold via NTT DoCoMo. Almost 61% new iPhones were sold via the country's largest carrier. This is a big win for Apple especially in contrast to its rival Samsung. And NTT DoCoMo played a major role in the victory.
