New research says that during October 2021, Apple's sales of the iPhone grew 46% month over month in China, making it the country's largest smartphone manufacturer.

Having previously reported that Apple has dominated global smartphone profits, and could do the same in Europe, Counterpoint Research says the iPhone 13 dominated in China.

Analysts at the research firm say that sales of the iPhone 13 grew 46% MoM, while overall the entire Chinese smartphone market grew only 2% MoM in October 2021.

"Apple could have gained more if it were not for the shortages, especially for the Pro versions," said research director Tarun Pathak said. "But still, Apple is managing its supply chain better than other OEMs." Pathak notes that the top position in China "has been changing hands" since the decline of Huawei.
