According to a Counterpoint Research report, the iPhone 12 became the world’s best-selling 5G model in October despite a delayed launch, which led to sales of only two weeks during the month.
The report also said that the iPhone 12 Pro, introduced next to the iPhone 12, was the second best-selling 5G model in a month. The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro combined took up about a quarter of 5G smartphone sales in October.
