iphone 12 120hz
Some new data reported by PCMag suggests that Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 are the best-selling 5G phones in the US.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max is the most popular phone in 49 of the 50 US states, and the iPhone 12 Pro is the most popular 5G phone in the remaining state, making the United States the nation of the iPhone.
These phones are only four months old, which indicates the continued popularity of the iPhone in the United States and the importance of the role it plays in pushing the adoption of 5G in this country.
The reports come from research firm M Science’s sales data and information gathered from Okla Speed test users
Okla is looking into using its Speed test apps across consumers’ phones, and provided test data in January.
M Science tracks the cumulative sales of 5G phones in the United States, and the data set includes these sales as of the week of January 23 and does not specifically include the Galaxy S21 series phones, which did not start shipping at that point.
And M Science and Okla agree that the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the most popular 5G phone in the United States, although they swap positions on whether the iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro is in second place.
Okla says: The iPhone 12 Pro is the most popular in Vermont and Washington, DC, and the second most popular phone nationwide, while M Science says: The iPhone 12 is the second nationally.
The results are in line with previous reports of strong iPhone 12 Pro Max sales and weak iPhone 12 mini sales
And Apple, as usual, took its time to add 5G to its phones, while Samsung started that in 2019 with the Galaxy S10 5G and added 5G across the S20 series in 2020.
Outside of these two manufacturers, 5G has moved from a previously distinctive feature to the newly limited budget phone category.
Despite this growing array of options, adoption has been slow, and given that Apple is responsible for slightly less than half of cell phone shipments in the US, it makes sense that the iPhone 5G would give a boost to adoption rates.
To be sure, the slow start of 5G in the US was not helped by a less than stellar product.
And while every major carrier offers 5G coverage nationwide, the performance is often roughly the same as 4G, and sometimes worse.
That should change when more spectrum becomes available to carriers later this year.
