Phone makers shipped 27.7 million handsets in June, down from 32.7 million in June 2019, according to the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), a state-backed think tank.

That follows a similar decline in May, when shipments dropped more than 10% annually, from 36.4 million in May 2019 to 32.6 million one year later.

Apple and its rival smartphone brands do not publicly release regional shipments.

MacDailyNews Take: iPhone owners around the world, including in China, know Apple’s well-established cadence and are likely waiting for the first 5G iPhones en masse.

  1. …but APPL defies the odds by growing over 66% in the same YOY period (11 months actually. $192 last Aug…just shy of $400 today)

    Crazy and happy times (if one owns APPL).
