The iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max were the world's best-selling phones in Q1

The iPhone 13 was the third best-selling smartphone of 2021, even though it's only been three months since its launch, so it's no surprise to hear that Apple's devices are off to a strong start in 2022. A huge amount of apps possible to use

iPhone 13 dominates the smartphone market IDC -analyst Francisco Jeronimo reports that Apple's iPhone 13 was the best-selling smartphone in the world in March 2022. And this is despite the serious supply problems that Apple faced during that period.

IDC chose not to disclose the total number of units sold. The individual market shares of the phone were also not disclosed. However, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 were the best-selling phones in 2021 and 2020, so the iPhone 13 was expected to start strong. By the way, the iPhone 13 costs $799 in the United States and has the latest A15 Bionic chipset and a dual camera setup, along with a 6.1-inch screen with a notch. It will be added to iOS 15 out of the box. The 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max was second in Q1 2022. This suggests that people are willing to pay a small premium for access to a larger screen.

The tiny 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro took a very respectable fourth place, while the tiny 5-inch iPhone 13 mini rounded out the top five. The latter further explains Apple's decision to abandon the mini-iPhone. The iPhone 13 family is said to account for 8% of all iPhone sales in the first three months of 2022. The rest of the revenue came from the iPhone SE (2022) and the previous iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 models.

One thing is clear from the latest results from Apple. It seems that the company has found that its two sizes of smartphones are perfect. And that could sharply boost demand for the iPhone 13, debuting in September.

Apple's two 6.1-inch iPhone models made the top five last quarter. , will likely be popular with older 5.8-inch or

7-inch iPhones. Those upgrading their older inch phones may also be interested.

But perhaps more importantly, Apple's 6.7-inch Pro model was better than its 6.1-inch version. This trend has continued since the release of the iPhone 12 in late 2020, indicating a general demand for larger iPhones.

So the next generation of its 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Max could be a very profitable model for Apple. It offers everything consumers love about Apple's regular bestsellers, but in a larger form factor at a significantly lower price than the Pro series.

Only time will tell what Apple's take on the next iPhone will be, but next year's best-selling smartphone could be the 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Max, and Apple is in the top five. It can fill instead of three places.
