Apple sells a ton of iPhones, but not as many as Samsung, according to a new report based on first-quarter smartphone shipments.

Figures compiled by BanklessTimes claim that Samsung shipped 73.6 million smartphones in the first quarter of 2022, a number that was 17 million more than Apple handled in the same period. The numbers gave Samsung the top spot, while Apple came in second ahead of Xiaomi in third.

However, it’s not all bad news for Apple and its latest iPhone 13: the report notes that it was the only OEM to see growth in the quarter thanks to a 2.2% increase in shipments.

Apple ranks second, having sold 56 million smartphones. This volume caused Apple’s market share to settle at 18%, indicating a 2.2% increase in change year over year (YOY). Additionally, the California-based tech giant was the only smartphone OEM to see positive growth.

Smartphone shipments as a whole have been down for some time thanks to a saturated market and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. All growth is good growth, although surely Apple would prefer to be in the top spot. Considering how many different devices Samsung sells with its logo, the latter isn’t a bad place.

Apple still has a big 2022 to look forward to, of course. The new iPhone 14 lineup is fast approaching with an announcement expected around September.

Review: Keychron’s Q0 is a high-end mechanical number pad for your setup

Mechanical keyboards give you a decent sound and feel, but most of the best ones don’t have a number pad. If you don’t always use a number pad but want to have one for those times when you do, or just want to customize it for macros, then the Q0 is perfect.
