Tokyo : The shipment of technology giant Apple Inc.’s iPhones to Japan dropped 10.6 percent in 2015, as per a report.
According to MM Research Institute, shipments totalled 14.73 million units and it declined due to the sluggish sales of Apple’s latest iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
The institute noted that while Apple remains the market leader for smartphone sales in Japan, it has given some way to Sony and Sharp who have both gained ground, Xinhua news agency reports.
According to the institute, Apple may continue to lose market share in the lucrative smartphone market as the government is leaning on domestic mobile carriers to review their discount policies. (ANI)
