While Apple no longer reports unit sales and hasn’t done for a few years, the best place we an get an estimate on shipment numbers is from research companies such as Omdia and this week they have released new shipment estimates for Apple for the first half of 2020 as well as other phone manufacturers.
Omdia estimates that in the first half of 2020, Apple shipped out 37.7 million iPhone 11 handsets, followed quite a way behind by the Samsung Galaxy A51 with 11.4 million units. In 5th position is the iPhone SE (2020) which considering it wasn’t launched until April, 8.7 million sales is good.
Omdia also has the numbers for the first half of 2019 too, in the lineup for that time the iPhone XR was in the same space as the iPhone 11 is now and it sold 26.9 million units, 10.8 million less.
This increase could be down to timing and the time between each phone people buy or the fact the naming makes more sense this year, i.e iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.
